Start by checking my post "The Basics" below.

I would start with checking the fuel pressure with a gauge. See how that compares to the specs in the service manual. Check www.autolibrary.org for the specs.

I agree with Joe,check your fuel pressure but leave the gauge on for 2 hours and see if it drops,if it does you likely have a bad check valve in your fuel pump.By the way I dont mean 3-4 psi I mean a major drop.
