Did they replace all of the fuel hoses as well, even the ones back at the fuel tank? Then after having that done it is possible that the fuel filter is clogged with small shavings from the new lines, you should replace it anytime there is any fuel system work that has been done. Also fuel tank venting is very important model, so make sure they didn't mess up the fuel venting hoses and carbon canister vacuum supplies.
