    You need for someone else, preferably a GM specialist, to check this out.

    why would they replace three fuel pumps if it wasn't the problem the first time? chances are it's either the ignition module .5 hrs or the throttle position sensor at .5 hrs...disconnect the pos terminal on the battery for both jobs 2 screws and a plug on each part and done both parts usually under $150.00 bucks combined one is on the left side top as you face the motor next to your ign coil and the other is on the right side of the throttle body okay?
    ...good luck Al
