P0461 reads: Fuel level sensor circuit, range or performance problem.

P0463 reads: Fuel level sensor circuit, high input.

Both codes point to changing the fuel sending unit and, I'm sorry to say, isn't cheap. I recently replaced mine and it ran about $300 for an aftermarket unit purchased from O'Reilley auto parts.

Have you checked your air filter a clogged air filter will cause your car to die when idleing. You could idle up the engine a bit if that does't help.A bad o2 sensor could also be the culprit. Start with the easiest first and go from there.

Most likely your throttle position sensor is faulty. You could have a vacuum leak as well. Most probable cause is a bad sensor. Is your check engine light on? Have you checked your engine codes? You can go to autozone.com and register for full free online repair manual.

If it is fuel pump, is that an easy thing tofix. would appreciate any advice on this. thanks
