Yes sir... And I bypassed the fuel receptor and it did the same thing. I'm thinking it the fuel pump but I'd like to exhaust all options before buying the $250 part haha

Try cleaning the throttle and the idle air control valve or mass air flow sensor depending on which one your vehicle has clean with spray throttle body cleaner. Also would not hurt to check and replace air filter if necessary.

did any one think of crank senor / engine wont idle if fuel pump and filter good all so did full tune up thats what i think enclave-961 on 2001 grand prix v6

enclave-961 G.M. had a problem years ago with there engines doing this it was crank senor it all so would stall out you sat a while it start and on your way it may not happen again for weeks
