Question Answered: 

I strongly recommend taking your car to a professional technician for help with this problem. Fuel pump is a total guess at this point--you are going to put serious time and money into trying to fix this, and the money at a shop would be well spent.

It may be the fan motor. Or the fan relay. Or the thermostat. You run a bit of a risk of trying one thing after another without some diagnostic equipment and expertise. None of these jobs is huge, but you'll still want a repair manual or something.
