    Sounds like the fuel pump to me, with your mileage and description of the problem it wouldn't be a surprise.

    My 99 alero had the same problem. I cleaned the connection from the battery at the under hood fuse box and no more stalling. It was very corroded. Disconnect and wire brush. Time: 5 min. cost: free.
