Now it's time to measure the fuel pressure so you're not guessing. Changing the fuel filter only ever gives you the nice warm feeling of spending some money. A faulty, or failing, pump is more likely. The relay could also be part of the problem

That's another favourite for the I don't know what it's for, or how it does it so it must be faulty school of diagnosis.

Well, it's job is to regulate fuel pressure. The best pump in the world won't hold pressure against an open pipe ::)

But whilst we're remotely playing at fixing things...  ;)

I have a new relay, pump and filter. As far as I know this car hasn't been serviced for at least 5 years - hence the fuel, air, oil filter, oil and plug pre-purchase anyway.
