1993 jeep Grand Cherokee 4.0L 6cyl 4wd no check engine light

I bought my car used. At the time when i started it it ran real loud and what id describe as “bubbly” and ouder than i thought it should but it was a cheap car…and it was from my moms hubby at the time… Last year i had to completely rebuild the transmission… now ever since when i turn car on and press on gas it hesitates… i never git it looked at… (stupid, i know) anywayd more recently it has been hard to accelerate up hills on the freeway…etc its like i have to stomp on the pedal…Nd it seems like the mim i put gas in i gotta put more in soon after…i drove it to the store and it drove there no sign of stalling. No sign of a rough idle. No sign of anything besides ehat it had been doing…i came out of the store an hour or two later and started the car…it was idling really rough…so i turned it off for a few mins and tried again…crank but no start and again…crank but no start…i had to call a tow. As i am waiting i try again more then ten mins later Nd it starts right up…it ran for about 7-8 mins and started roughly running i tried giving her gas and it seemed to make it worse and turns off. I was close to E on my gas tank so tow truck guy said he thinks im just out of gas but i had driven the car at a lower fuel level than it was at. Anyways i get home put a half gallon in mind you it was reading just below the second line now after half gallon it is a lil above and it has been reading correctly since i got it. Anywayz put gas in try to start it does the same thing it did at the store. Even running a few secs and then turning off. I smell a lil gas outside but not in the cab…dont kniw if its from the spilled gas from using gas can or the fuel system on her. Im thinking fuel pump… i bought a gauge but someone wants me to check the cheaper part…fuel filter first… And now i have checkex the pressure with a ga ge with the key in theon position and the gauge read 0 psi. Now when i put the gauge on gas spurtef out of the schrader valve as it should… Well i figured third try is the charm so.after tightening the gauge a lil i had my helper try turning on the car and now it wont even crank…it makes a clicking noise as if the battery is dead…i dont get gow the battery would die it has only been sitting for 4 or 5 days?.. Help help help. Furl pump??? Accelerator??? Both??? Alarm system mal function? What is my cars issue?? I say alarm systese i read that it will shut down the fuel pump…
