Replace the pump and the filter, and you will be on your way again.

I ignored that swarm of bees a little too long in my car, and it
stopped one night on the way home from work.

Fuel pumps give a lot of notice that they are failing, and die
slowly. The filter can get shreds of plastic from the pump in
it that clog it up, causing your bucking.

It's much easier to do this at your convenience....
