What Could be wrong with my car so I can take a look before a shop? Idles/dies

(1999 Ford Taurus)
What could be wrong: 2 days ago driving fine that night Every stoplight/pause/idle and i'd have to hit the gas before it could die. Yesterday I tried it in the drive way started, ran @ 2rpm, while idling dropped under 1rpm, Tapped the gas, shot up to 3rpm, idled and dropped to 1rpm fast, tapped gas Nothing happened, hit gas Nothing happened, dropped under 1rpm, dash lights flicked on/off once really quick, car died.
I'm going to try changing fuel pump & air filter. Any other ideas? Thank y

I would take it to a shop for a proper diagnosis.-Sounds more like a sensor issue.Neither of your ideas hits me as the cause,and changing the fuel pump is a big job.
