Did you ever find a solution for this? Because my 2001 Jimmy is having similar problems

No had some work done and had fuel filter replaced. Runs better, for now. The real test is hot weather, that is when the stalling was at its worst.

I was told by an authorized dealer, the fuel pump doesn't send codes.
Now remember this part:
I went to all the parts sellers, Checker, Autozone, and none of them knew this. They just kept saying, "Sounds like blah blah blah...." And of course, I bought about 400 bucks worth of parts. Some even said the engine crank sensor. If it was the engine crack sensor, that would send a code. So don't let them bullshit you. Take it straight to a dealer.
Mine was fixed, it was the fuel pump and now I'm back in business.
Also another tip. I had them put in the exact brand name fuel pump.
Best Part: LifeTime Warranty, and guaranteed because a profesional authorized shop installed it.
If it ever goes out on me again, I get a new one FOR FREE!!!
My Blazer 4.3 ZR2 would start fine, then after about 10 minutes, begin to sputter or just cut out completely.
It finally died. After 6 months of sitting in the driveway, I threw in a new battery, it cranked and started enough for me to move it.
I let it idle, then it died, never to start again.
The dealer sent a tow truck, they took it, I got it back with a new fuel pump and I'm back in business!
Don't waste your time on parts store. Have a dealer pick it up and fix it.
But also have about a grand for this. The pump on my 2002 ZR2 was $420.00.
I hope this helps!

It was my fuel pump. Had it installed at the dealer with original part and lifetime warranty. It's been running fine ever since.

Remember Ford did not have to take the bailout. But Government motors and doop did. Lol
The recent world reports on the most reliable cars and trucks is Ford. yes they had their moments of trouble, but, all the manufacturers in america did then. But now Ford is a real world contender and they always had the best truck. So yes your decision to buy a ford next time is a wise one. Chevy trucks are no more than glorified cars anyway.

hey, remember one thing, unless you do need to haul in the bed 4000 plus pounds or more, you only need a ford f 150, the 2012 model payload capacity from ther ford website is 3060lbs. that is more than the 2500 hd chevy. so remember the f-150m is the same as the 2500 chevy and the 3500 dodge.
