As Kartek suggested, look at the tank strainer, this will be a good start.

You can blow on the valve, the pressure in it is really little, then no worries there.

I had trouble with the seal on the whole pre-filter assembly and by passed it, no more bugger for me there.

you need to refill the fuel filter in order to restart the car properly as it contain about 0.5 litre.

Doing the lift pump might help too, when I did mine there was a difference between the new non return valve and the old one.

Hope it help...
