As you know, this may be a result of a faulty fuel pump. This may also be a result of a failing fuel pressure regulator as well. This is what monitors the fuel pressure in the system and maintains pressure at the correct level during operation and starting. I would suggest having a professional from YourMechanic come to your location to diagnose your fuel pressure problem and guide you through any repairs.
