Stepping on the gas pedal has nothing to do with the fuel pump. The fuel pump runs and pressurizes the fuel rail. The gas pedal opens the valve in the throttle body and allows more air to enter. --- Get the codes read at the parts store. Write down the trouble code number and post it here. Someone will advise the most cost effective solution. There may be pending codes that have not lit the CEL yet.
