Question about Cars & Trucks
Check the electrical system--distributor cap and plug leads for moisture. Check all wire connectors for water ingress and dry out. If you were driving for some time then the cat converter would be hot and immersion in water such as you describe is the best way to crack the insides and block up the exhaust.

Sounds like the fuel pump. Simple check put key in ignition turn to on position Pump should buzz. Another way to check use a rag and hunt down schrater valve on the fuel rail on engine. Wear eye protection put rag around bottom of schrater valve and press down on valve. Fuel should shoot up at you if not your pump is bad.

Purchased a new gray Standyne Fuel Solenoid Driver kit with heat sink and extended wire harness. Mounted on left fender well and was able to do the work myself in about an hour. No need for injector pump work. Solved stalling issues and it starts up easier as well. These are all over ebay. Very common issue with this engine, and the GMC knuckleheads knew about it and didn't do anything to educate dealerships on a permanant fix.
