Default 01 Ram 318 Shuts off

Started having trouble a couple weeks ago. Wife said the truck would not start and when it did it would cut back off. It would finally stay running and she made home with no problems. When I rev the motor up and let off the gas it shuts off. If I ease off the gas slowly it will stay running. The engine doesn't miss or skip and I have no check engine light. Had a friend hook a scan tool to the truck and didn't find much of a problem. I tested the fuel pressure and got 47psi. Could it be a weak battery, dist. cap, rotor or coil or maybe a fuel problem.The scan tool did pick up a restriction at the filter. But I might as well change the pump. Just trying not to spend any unneccesary money.
