Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

You may have a fuel system issue or the problem could be electrical. The first step in diagnosing the problem is to see if any fault codes are setting.

Was it the transfer pump or injector pump that was replaced?
Have you checked for fault codes?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
I replaced the fuel pump not injection pump and there is not a code
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 5 months ago.

You replaced the transfer pump on the left side of the engine block?
You've physically connected a code reader or scan tool and found no fault codes?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
I replace the one is mounted in the engine block I didn't connected a code reader.
