Any recent work? like fuel filter or anything like that?

Yes had a fuel filter replaced as part of a recent service

Did you notice this happening AFTER the filter service? Because alot of fueling issues can be the result of air trapped in the lines. If a post filter bleed doesn't work sometimes it has to be bled at the injector.
