98 Pontiac grand am 2.4 twin won’t stay started

No lights on the dash, but windows and radio work fine. Wipers and lights work. Car starts, and then dies. I’m thinking fuel or spark, car currently at the mechanic.

Had an issue with oil on the spark plugs last year and the replaced the plugs and boots. 174k miles, any help would be appreciated.

OK , why not wait and see what the mechanic says . You could get all kinds of ideas but it is never a good idea to tell the shop what they should do. You are paying them to fix your vehicle .
