I had exactly the same syptoms as you, and replaced the fuel pump...but 
it didn't solve the problem. In the end the culprit was a loose 
connector that provided power to the fuel pump relay. It was a very 
intermittent and hard to diagnose problem. Should the fuel pump not be 
your problem, check for loose or bad wires underneath the relay panel.

The fuel pump probably needed replacing anyway since it had about 140k 
miles on it...but you can imagine my joy the THIRD time I had to 
flat-bed the car back to my garage! Grrrrr!
