Problems on top of more problems..

I've made threads about my problem in my car (93' Si) before, but i thought i would make one big ole' thread with all the problems that go wrong with my car. and before I start ill tell you what i've replaced trying to fix the problem thus far:
1. We bought a "new" (less than 40k miles) f22b and put it in
2. replaced the entire distributer (but it wasn't the solution to the problem so i kept the old distributer but bought a new cap & button because mine was looking beat up.
3. New fuel pump (but when we took it out to check and see if my fuel tank was rusty or not we discovered the strainer was yellowy-gold (sort of like rust) when I got the fuel pump new about 2 or 3 months ago.
4. New fuel filter
5. New spark plugs and wires

Now for the problems:
1. The first (and still major problem because it happens every time) problem is that after about 2 or 3 miles of driving it (if not less (its progressively gotten worse) my car will start to jerk back and fourth and the RPM will slowly go up but barely, and the more gas i give it, the harder it does it(if i barely press the gas down it won't do it or if it does, it's extremely minor)

2. Next, this has only happened maybe 3 or 4 times, but it still cant be good whatsoever, is that when I brake, my battery light will flicker on and off, and if i continue to press down (or press down on the brakes fast (but not slamming)) My car will turn off and the oil and battery light will stay on, sort of like it stalled out.

3. Next, and this just started happening today, is that my car will randomly give it / not give it gas. I can be driving down the road and it won't seem to have any gas but a little bit later I can give it gas and it will be fine for a little while, then the problem repeats itself.

If you guys have any ideas what any of these problems could be I would greatly appreciate it.

Me and my buddy are going to try to replace the tank tomorrow with a cleaner one since apparently mine is extremely rusty, im not sure if i should replace the fuel pump too, because it may have collected rust and won't work properly (i'm thinking that might have something to do with problem #3 because when my car won't give gas, if i turn it off, then back on, it will make a high-pitch squealing noise, like it did when my car needed a new fuel pump when i first got my car, but after a couple of attempts it will turn on).

Thank you. :)
