Question: Vehicle won't start/stay on

Before my car decided not to stay on anymore, I would be drving and as I switched gears and sped up, the car felt like it lost force and would glide for a couple seconds then would get back to normal. It finally just didn't stay on anymore. I switched my battery with another car battery and my car started up like nothing was wrong! I'm confused and not sure what could be causing this to happen. Any ideas??? Someone told me it could be the fuel pump but I'm not sure...

Thanks!

Yes it could be the fuel pump. I would have the pressure checked. Also I would have the amperage checked on the pump.
