your fuel pump should be likely the problem

If it is the fuel pump and I decide to go with a used reconditioned one and it doesn't have for instance the sensor and things that the original one does .. how hard is it replace and get the things I need from the original one to use or is that even possible???

my rav4 just had similar problems. sputter, died and wouldn't run long enough to drive. try pulling a spark plug out and see if it runs with plug out. look real careful for exhaust smoke to come out. ended up being a blocked converter. making it start, sputter, an die. took 3 weeks of trial and error to notice. good luck.
