CHEVY STALLING RIGHT AFTER STARTING

2000 Chevrolet Silverado

Engine Mechanical problem
2000 Chevy Silverado V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 124000 miles

Hello, My 2000 silverado, has been rock solid. I went out to start it today, and it started for about 5 sec, and then sputtered, like it would if it were running out of gas. Turned the key again, and same thing, it fires the normal way it always has, and then after about 5-10 sec, as it drops down to idol it sputters, and stalls. It drove fine all day the day before, with no signs of missing or anything. I'm thinking fuel filter (hopefully), or fuel pump? I might add, that a couple times when I fired it, it sputtered for more than 10 sec. And was throwing black smoke out the tail pipe. Any thoughts

FYI. It was the fuel pump assembly. Damn expensive too.
