SOURCE: Car stalls right after starting
check all vacuum lines and also check to see if there is any leaks around the intake manifold and check the fuel pressure and check for any loose or damaged wires to the coil packs and the alternator

SOURCE: car can stall in warm weather
Most likely if it is temperature related you may have a temperature sensor that is failing. The sensor may not be reacting properly to the actual temperature and causing the engine to run rich in warmer weather when a richer setting is not required.
You could have a sticking injector or sticking EGR valve or a faulty TPS switch, all can cause a rich condition and a poor running engine.
Is the service engine light on or come on at some point?
I would start by having the car scanned for trouble codes. You can have the scanned at no cost to you at your local Auto Zone or Advance Auto Parts. Write the codes down and respond back.

Testimonial: "Hi I unplugged the heat sensor and it stopped doing the problem so thanks for the great input thumbs up for u...."
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.
