Hi yoshi297,

Sorry to hear about the problem with your "new" car. Unfortunately, we can't diagnose problems from a remote location. The fuel pump relay sends power to the fuel pump - a bad relay isn't going to "burn out" the pump, though.

Intermittent problems like you're experiencing aren't easy to solve. Your vehicle is covered in Haynes manual no. 68031. There's a troubleshooting section up near the front of the book, and fuel system information is in Chapter 4. If you get the manual and still require help, you can contact one of our tech service reps at research@haynes.com and they'll see if they can help you. You'll have to give them all of the pertinent information about your car, and you'll have to have your manual with you, as they'll will need some specific information from it.

Finally, before replacing parts to see if that fixes the problem, do your best to diagnose the problem. You can save a lot of money that way.
