Fuel pump problems on 1991 Chevrolet S10

I was driving and my truck started to jerk and sputter, if i pumped the gas wile idling it would stay alive, but if i didn't it would die and not start back up. Is the fuel pump the problem or is there more I need to be worried about?

Hi friend, first of all is the fuel pump working. turn the key on and listen for noise from the pump operating. also you might need to change the fuel filter.
