Chris is great! He called to say he could come earlier than planned, which worked out nicely. Of course, the car magically fixed itself as soon as he laid eyes on it, but he did a pretty thorough inspection and discussed with me a lot of the possibilities for the original problem. If it rears its head again, I'll call Chris for sure.

Before replacing the pump, first be sure that filters, fuel pickups, fuel pump relays, and electrical connectors are in good working order. A clogged fuel filter, for instance, can restrict flow and cause some of the same symptoms.
Your engine needs gas to run. The gas, however, is stored in the gas tank, not in the engine. When the engine needs more fuel, the fuel pump is responsible for pumping the gas from the tank to the engine, where it is used to power the vehicle. As the fuel pump deteriorates, it will be less and less efficient at pumping gas to the engine, and your vehicle will have a harder time running. When the fuel pump completely dies, it will be unable to pump gas to your engine, and your car won’t run.
