    It could quite possibly be the fuel pump that has failed, make sure the fuel filter is also replaced as a restricted fuel filter can cause the fuel pump to fail and a bad pump could clog a fuel filter. A bad fuel pump relay could also cause problems so many things "could" be the source of the problem but you would need to be able to do diagnostic tests to come to any firm conclusions as to whats wrong. .
