Yes the fuel pump is common on this vehicle as it is on a lot of vehicles it seems nowadays. It could also be a crank or cam sensor also along with fuel injection issues.

The best recommendation I can give to keep you from replacing good parts is to have a qualified mechanic come and check your vehicle out and test the fuel pressures and computer system to help you get the repair you need with out guessing.
