My car was low on fuel and started acting like it was going to run out of gas so I got gas. When I tried to restart the car it just spuddered and didn't respond when I tried to rev the engine. After about a minute it started idling properly so I drove to the store. This just happened today, so I haven't tried anything yet.
Do you
have the same problem?

CHANGE FUEL FILTER AND GET THE FUEL PRESSURE TESTED, RUNNING LOW TO OFTEN CAN OVER HEAT INTERNAL PUMPS AND CAUSE FAILURE.

Are you referring to the fuel pump? If so how accessible is it, I would like to do this myself!

Check pressure first, no value in changing the pump if the fuel pressure is ok, you may just have a blocked filter, do the simple things first.
