1997 Neon and needs help bad

I was driving to work today and it was running great, when I let off the gas she stalled. When I tried starting, it idles real rough and barley. As soon as I give it a little gas it stalls again. Now it won’t start. And yes it has gas, I just filled up last night. It did the same thing Monday when I was picking up the kids at school. I let it sit for a min. and then it started with no problems. She's a good car and I don't want to give up on her just yet. Can anyone give me suggestions?

Sounds like the fuel pump to me.

Remove your alternator and get it tested. Sounds like car running off of battery until battery gets too weak and dies. A battery sitting will cool down and be able to provide spark for a short period before dying again.

Next, check battery strength, should be close to 13V.
