my riviera cuts off in wont start up

Car wouldn't start sometimes and other times it would rev really low and then high right after start up. There wasn't a rhyme or reason why it would or wouldn't start. Normally it would start right back up after 30 minutes or so, but decided to take it into the mechanic after I got stuck in a car wash line. They replaced the fuel pump and my car had noticeably more power after starts right up too.
