Question about 1998 Chevrolet Monte Carlo
This is not the fuel pump, this is an idle air control issue. Either the idle air control valve is gummed up or the throttle body interior is filthy or both, the fix is very cheap. Disconnect the air ducting between the air filter cleaner and the throttle body. Using WD40 spray and a cloth clean the throttle interior and throttle plate until like new. Pivot the throttle plate by applying pressure with your fingers and clean in as far as you can behind the throttle plate. Remove the idle air control (IAC) valve from the throttle body and clean the associated passageways and pintle valve. Make sure the electrical connectors to the IAC is clean and reassemble everything. You should notice an immediate improvement to engine performance from start up and no more engine stalls.
