Check your battery cables and clamps. Maybe they left the ground cable loose after your tune up. If they're clean and tight, have the battery load tested and make sure there's no dead cell.

Aspire to inspire before you expire.

Potential causes of a P0087 trouble code may include:

Weak fuel pump
Clogged filter or screen,
Restricted fuel supply line
Faulty fuel pump driver module
Faulty fuel pressure sensor

I would suggest getting a fuel pressure test. The fuel pressure should be 57 +/- 5 PSI
