Honestly, I feel that pumping the gas pedal isn't causing the car to start. To me, it sounds like the starter is going bad, perhaps the solenoid. What you could try is this. Have a helper turn the key to the start position (where it will click) while another person checkes for power to the smaller wire on the starter. It should be getting 12 volts when in the start position. If it is, chances are the starter solenoid is going bad. If it isn't getting power, then move to the starter relay.
