Default 94 3.4 Camaro wont start

I'm pretty sure I know whats wrong already but my mothers 1994 camaro will run and get warm and then stall with no warning. I opened the pcv tube behind the throttle body and it was gummed up (yellowish gunk looked like crisco) , Autozoner told me it was the intake gasket shredded and clogging the pcv valve, but when I replaced it just to drive it for a bit it would turn and turn but no start, is the gasket really the problem or is there something im not seeing? Ignition is fine along with starting system.

Have you pulled any of the plugs to see if they are getting coolant soaked???

What do they look like??

Im wondering if the headgaskets are blown or the LIM is leaking into the intake ports and its causing the spark to blow out.

The plugs have normal carbon wear and youcan smell the gas on them

Gas?? Turn the key on or start the car, pull the vacuum line off the fuel pressure regulator to see if fuel is coming out. If so, replace the FPR.

Do a spark check, you may just have weak spark as well.
