Yes it does sound like a fueling issue, but could also be vacuum sensor or airflow sensor.
If you haven't replaced the fuel filter in 3 years, then it may be about time you did. It is also one of the least expencive parts, and even a DIY job if access is possible, but you have to depressurise the fuel line before changing.
You can test the output of the fuel pump through the filter with a little care and a short length of pipe into a fuel can. It can as you say be a faulty fuel pump - but you will only know by testing it.

I have a 2006, and I was just advised that it is the EGR valve, which cost 624.24 to replace. It is not a warranty item. Do you have any knowlege if this is an ongoing problem.

Look at the voltage while the its cranking. If it drops to below 11 volts clean the terminals. If they are clean and it still drops to below 11v replace the starter. Get it tested first.. If the battery and terminals pass, then replace the starter. But to do this correct go to any mechanic or even an auto zone. They can test the battery, charging system and alternator in about 5 minutes with a special tool.

You've possibly destroyed the ECM (computer) and maybe damaged other components. Take it to a qualified person locally for diagnosis.
