    If you've replaced the relay it may be the pump itself. How do you know it's a fuel problem? It's probably time to have it diagnosed by an independent shop...

    As Hal said it's best to properly diagnose the problem. Do you have a workshop manual? Autozone have some popular workshop manuals for free on line once you register (for free) on their website http://bit.ly/autozone_repair_info. There is a company that independent auto repair shops get their information from, this same information is available inexpensively for people that work on their own cars.. The information is year make and model specific, covering repair procedures, torque specifications, fluid capacities and specifications, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... Alldata is very easy to navigate http://bit.ly/AllData_Repair_Manuals_Online
