Fuel injection pressure sensor (regulator) could be bad. Just priced it out. Quite expensive to replace. Did the check engine light come on? If so, take it to a garage and have them read the codes. Could be a number of things. You can start cheap and try replacing the fuel filter but if you are not getting fuel I suspect a bad regulator or bad fuel pump....
