Sounds like the fuel pump is drawing too much amperage. If so, it will burn up the relay.

Usually a sign of a faulty pump, or a problem in the wiring between the relay and the gas tank.
You could unplug the harness at the tank to verify.

I have an eighty series lancruiser with a 3fe 4 litre motor in the past i have problems with the relay heating up and blowing the fuse , and have had the fuel pump replaced twice by mechanics but need


Check that the fuel pressure is the proper fuel pressure for the car some have low pressure systems and some have high pressure systems. if you put a low pressure pump on a high pressure system the pump will overheat and blow the fuse because it cant keep up.

I ran out of gas in 2005 cadillac sts and when i put gas in it it keeps on shacking like its about to cut off


Fill tank and put in a GOOD fuel system cleaner. (STP, Gumout, etc..) Running it out of fuel could've have damaged pump, fuel actually "cools" pump, running out and having to re-prime might have damaged pump. Try the cleaner first (pump replacement is not cheap) and consider changing fuel filter soon also.

1998 sts wont start unless u hit the gas then it runs rough ..u put it in drive it wont run over 2000 rpms then it dies


Is the gas tank above 1/2 tank now?

A worn / aged fuel pump will fail when it's hot and the fuel level is low (example: below 1/4)

Park your car in a cool area.

Start the car when it's cold outside,

Check the engine fuel pump pressure.

1996 k1500 blown ecm b


Suspect fuel pump may be causing too much draw, it's on same circuit I believe. Have draw tested, or at least check & clean all connections at fuel pump and try, if that fails, replacing fuel filter to reduce possible load on fuel pump may help also.
