Unhappy HELP! Fuel Pump

Hey everyone,

This morning I tried starting the car but it wouldn't turn over. I could hear the starter turning and there was power to everything and there was spark. So I tow it to my mechanic and of course...the stupid thing starts. So I drive it home b/c its kind of hard to diagnose.

Started up the car tonite and booted it around for a bit...The IDLE was normal pretty much until the car warmed up. Then I noticed as I stopped at a red light that the IDLE was dropping below 500rpms.

I had to give it some gas to keep the revs up so it wouldn't die on me.

I am pretty sure my fuel pump is dieing on me but need some more input.

What do y'all think?

Thanks in advance for the help

EDIT: I just got the fuel filter changed

So today with frost all over my car i tried to start the car...I did not hear the fuel pump prime, so i am thinkin that that is my problem...Usually I hear it click as well as something in the dash after 2 seconds of it being in the III position.

Any input guys/gals? Is my fuel pump toast?

Then today after school in +8 weather i went to start the car and it started fine....

Any help would be great thanks!!

not likely. check fuel pressure at the fuel rail, should be 42 psi @ prime, 38 at idle. It does sound like bad spark to me, from plugs, wires, cap and rotor... possibly even distributor. don't guess at the problem, pop your hood and diagnose it logically.
