Not enough information.

What speed are you traveling when this occurs?  Are you traveling at a high rate of speed, ie, using a lot of fuel, or just poking along.

Do you immediately put in the clutch and depress the throttle while still in motion?  Or do you come to a stop, then mess with the throttle?

My car has developed a problem.....  The last few times I have driven the car it does the same thing.  It will be running just fine and then it will start to act as if it is running out of gas.  Stumbling and trying to die....  After I bleep the throttle a few times  thinking it is truly "AAA time"  the car will run just fine.  There is a fuel filter between the gas tank and fuel pump.  The filter doesn't look freshly installed, however, it is not needing replacement.  The fuel pump is an electronic unit not SU. Should I suspect the fuel pump?  In the past when I needed to replace a pump it was dead ---  not working part of the time and fine later.  What should I check first???  Arch
