My car starts but shuts off after a few seconds of running and I dnt know if it needs a new fuel filter or fuel pump?

(1999 Buick Regal)
I just bought the car and was told it needs a major tune up because it has been sitting for about six months without being started but I have been driving it for three weeks and it runs smoothly until today when it just shut off on me in traffic like I said it will start back up without any problems it just doesn't stay running for more than a few seconds

It sounds more like a mass air flow sensor type of issue, however proper diagnostics for fuel pressure and sensor readings needs to be run, to give us the positive correct answer.
This is possible to have done today, if you care to have it diagnosed please call.
