1997 Sunfire Stalling Out

If I turn the car off after driving for awhile & come back to it within fifteen-twenty minutes and turn it back on I am not able to let it idle nor drive very far without the car stalling out on me.

I have taken it to a mechanic and he suggested it could be the fuel pump going south on me. Looking for a second opinion.
Thanks.

Check the EGR valve. If this valve stays open all the time like it sounds like it is you will have all these problems you are talking about, also with the glowing of the intake would make even more since
