Check the fuel filter,if it is ok ,have the fuel pressure checked,may be bad fuel pump.

bad connection fuel pump relay bend pins a little and put back in socket the relay gets hot well driving and weakens the relay socket by bending pins make relay tighter in socket no more bad connection, this happen to me, fuel pump relay is under engine hood in fuse box.
