Yeeeeaaaaah pump sounds like it's on its way out. I'd say check fuel pressure, but you have an '04 like me so I know that's not as easy as it sounds.

so i had a fuel pressure tester from Harbor freight. i'm guessing this will work to test out the fuel pressure

It might work if you have some fuel line handy. All the connections in the engine bay are male fittings.
