Re: 94 tempo fuel pump probloms

have you checked the voltage going to the pump? Have you checked the connections at the relay? have you tested voltage through the relay? There are a lot of things that you can do to test this out.

If you dont want to test it out then you can just replace the relay, if that does not cure it then you can replace the pump. If that does not cure it, then it could be a simple bad wire.

Get a voltmeter and test the lines. If you do not have one you can pick one up at autozone. They are not that expensive. Some diagnostic work is going to have to be performed by you, unless you want to pay someone else to do it.
