4 cylinder sputtering randomly

okay so i have a 4 cylinder 1997 SE, every once in a while when just started up or idling it will start to sputter down and come close to dying.....its done this twice on the road once while doing 60 and i had to pull off the road and it was fine.....and the other time today in 3rd gear it did it. i put it in neutral and got in the turn lane and was fine. but when it happens i can press the accelerator and something will start clicking and cluncking underneath me sounds to be coming from transmission, and then once i rev it once or twice it will be fine. ive done a little research, and came to a bad fuel pump, and a bad clutch sensor? any suggestions on what i should look for or listen to to lead me to the problem?

when in doubt, press the skinny pedal!
