Are you looking for fuel pump relay or fuel pump cut off switch.the fuel pump relay is under the hood close to the battery(having to be generic here because depending on the engine size battery could be on left or right) in a black box with printed nomeclature about what is inside.(fuses,relays, etc.)
fuel pump cut off switch is (if it has one) usually mounted in trunk,kick panel on passenger side of car. Easy way to find if if you have owners manual to car it will tell you there.

I have a 1999 Ford Contour...last night I my gas light came on and on my way to the gas station my car cut off on me...I put gas in the car but it still won't start. It cranks and everything and no other...

you may have a blown fuse check them first and the relay for the fuel pump just swap it with a new one if those are good spray starting fluid into the throttle body if the car runs the fuel pump went bad if you ran out of gas each time that happened it did damage to the fuel pump because the gas cools off the fuel pump while it operates so on an old car that's 16 years old if it happened a few times in it's life span it did damage each time this also could be just from age related failure but when you get a new pump always keep enough gas in the tank so it will keep the pump cooled off the pump is an electrical motor and they generate heat from operation the gas keeps it cold when the pump gets to hot it has to shut down for safety reasons to avoid an explosion and it fry's itself the other thing that could be wrong is you had a lot of dirt in the tank & the filter is clogged up check all the simple things first before you spend$$$$$$ for a fuel pump

1999 dodge ram 5.2 runs about thirty miles then stalls after running fine just suddenly loses all power sputters backfires engine stumbling badly. crank it up 4 or 5 hours later runs a little then same...

General advice:After warming up track the problem:sparkplugs (even new can have the ceramic parts broken/cracked /wiring (after warming up the isolation get's soft,can loose spark power)/ignition coil(s) (gets hot,stop runnig),running reach,fuel pump/fuel pump relay.Best guess:fuel pump mallfunction (low pressure) related,fuel filter cloged/water in the fuel/fuel line cloged/chipped. Cheers,hope u figure it out,let the people know.

2003 Galant fuel pump ground problem

Power to the pump is provided by the relay for the first 3 or 5 seconds to build pressure back up to start. Once the 5 seconds are past, the relay is grounded by the computer IF it sees oil pressure or crank signals. This helps prevent a fire if the car is in a wreck.
If it still won't start with the pump relay bypassed, you would check for spark and see if the computer is getting a crank signal.

Well i just replaced my head gasket in my 1999 mitsubishi galant 4cylinder and made sure my timing was correct and starts up right away but then suddenly stops so im beat i dont know wat to do next? should...

What you describe is very indicative of timing being off. Its not spark plugs.

Double check your timing and balance belt set up. Its possible to get the timing off enough so the engine starts then the ECU "realizes" that the sensor inputs are very wrong and shuts off the engine.

Is the hydraulic belt tensioner locked down BEFORE you install it? This is required (a large vise or press is required to do this). Once fitted and the tensioner bearing is locked, the lock pin is removed.

When to change timing belt in 2006 galant

Timing Belt Replace ment Intervals for 2006 Mitsubishi Galant are as follows:

2.4L 4Cylinder engine: Every 60,000 miles

3.8L V-6 Engine: Every 60,000 miles

Both of these engines are "Interference Engines" which means that if the timing belt breaks, severe engine damage is likely to result.

I personally recommend replacement of the timing belt idler and tensioner pullies as well as the water pump because failure of these components will cause a failure of the timing belt.

Recently I drove my 1999 Suburban with 204,000 miles on it until it ran out of gas and now it won't drive above 45 miles per hour. It feels like the engine is reving higher than normal when approaching 30...

A partially obstructed filter can do all kinds of strange things...Since you did run the tank dry, it wouldn't be a bad thing to do if you replaced the filter. They are not terribly expensive and in changing it you have removed that possibility. If after replacing it you still have a problem I'd check the actual fuel pressure as you may have damaged the pump itself....the electric pump depends upon fuel in the tank to keep it from overheating. In a very low or empty tank that can't happen.

1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Fuel Pump

check the connector to the fuel pump for corrosion or loose pins, the fuel pumps of newer cars and trucks are designed to last at least 100,000 miles, when the new pumps quit did u verify they had power to them?
