I just had the same problem with my 1997 Monte Carlo 3.1. It could be fuel pump, or fuel filter or fuel pump relay. Start with the later two, their cheaper and that's what my problem ended up being. If its the fuel pump your looking at about 300.00. Good Luck

AnswerAlthough, fuel related problems are possible, They are not always the case. A common problem with Gm vehicles is the TCC solenoid. If this is your problem the vehicle will stall as if you were driving a standard transmission and forgot to put the clutch in. Gm also has many problems with the ignition systems on several different engines. Basically the best thing to do is "verify the compaint". Most importantly you want to consider when the compaint happens and under what conditions. I.E. comming off an exit ramp, pulling a hill, humidity level (raining. All play important roles in CORRECT DIAGNOSTIC SERVICE. ANYONE, can throw parts at a vehicle.
