SOURCE: 1989 GMC 2500 5.7L - engine surges and stalls at idle. Loses power at cruising speed.

Wow you have replaced a lot of stuff. Lets go back to the Fuel pump. When you replaced it did you replace the hose between the pump and the sending unit. These are common for splitting. Have you hooked up a fuel pressure gauge to check what pressure you have? It should be real close to 13 psi and should raise to at least 18 or 19 when you pinch off the return line.

SOURCE: my 1993 GMC Suburban 5.7 liter with throttle body

Wow, That has gotta be a pain. The Maf sensor regulates the fuel supply needed for proper air fuel ratio by telling ecu how muc air is moving thriugh the intake. Check it first, Then the TPS. Good Luck.

Gmc engine stalls when i stop abruptly

First eliminate all vacuum or air leaks in the system. You may have a bad IAC ( idle air control) but try cleaning the throttle body first. Remove the intake snorkel, have someone hold the throttle wide open for you and scrub the back side of the throttle plate and surrounding bore with an old tooth brush and some carb cleaner. Be sure to spray some into the small holes next to the throttle plate. That should help stabilize the idle. If it still has a problem, replace the IAC.

Try removing and cleaning the idle control solenoid on the throttle body. They get contaminated with carbon build-up and gives you an erratic idle. It's the round solenoid that screws into the side of the throttle body. When you remove it you'll see a spring loaded plunger that needs cleaning with throttle body cleaner and you'll need to clean the seat inside the throttle body as well.12_24_2012_2_14_19_pm.png

Try spraying a couple shots of carb spray down the throttle body while a helper cranks it over. If it starts and runs for a couple of seconds check fuel pressure and the resistance of the injectors.

I replaced my battery in my 2004 GMC Envoy last week now the car cuts off/stalls whenever I come to a complete stop. It fires right back up once I put it back in park and start it again.

The throttle body needs to be cleaned, When you disconnected the battery, the computer reset to factory defaults and now with a dirty throttle body, it will run poorly at idle. Make sure both the front side and rear side of the throttle body are cleaned thoroughly.

Soon as i let off the eccelerator it stalls wont stay running unless foot on the gas

Pull AIS (automatic idle speed) or IAC (idle air control) motor off, clean with carb cleaner or throttle body spray cleaner, as well as port it came out of & see if that doesn't help or cure it. If it cures it for a while, then starts to do it again, replace it. (located on side, at front part of throttle body usually.)
