Q: fuel pump on 2001 Porsche 911

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
I have a 2001 Carrera that I have been driving for about 4 years. A month ago it wouldn't start. I took it to the Porsche dealership and they diagnosed it as a fuel pump. It was replaced, and the next day it wouldn't start. They told me it was the fuel pump (again) and then changed the fuel pump relay switch. 2 days later and again, it won't start. Unbelievably, they again said it was a fuel pump. I got it back, and yes, 4 days later, the same problem. The dealership still contends that it is a fuel pump! At this point, I have a car that doesn't run and I almost have to let them fix it or give me my money back from the original repair. Does anybody know what else would cause this problem, because I am pretty sure that Porsched fuel pumps aren't that unreliable? Thanks.

I recommend you tow the car to an independent Porsche specialist. I'm sure that the dealer has not figured out what's wrong with your car and if it were myself, I'd find someone who can. Sorry about your dealership experience, they're not all that bad.
If you want to find a specialist, here's a directory link for you:
