The fuel pump relay is part of a large relay control unit called the IRCM (intagrated relay control module)
The module is about 6"x4"x2" and has gobs of wires (large retangular connector) coming out of it, the module is mounted on a bracket under the hood that is bolted to the top of the driver's side front strut tower, this module can be self tested by a dealer to see if it is bad, they seldom fail, I am a Ford dealer tech and have only replaced 2 in 20 years, Tempo does however have a fuel pump issue..
If you have power steering, first check to see if you have fluid in the power steering reservoir. If you don't have power steering, you most likely have binding in the rack and pinion unit, and that has to be replaced as an assembly, and is a bit pricey, so check your fluid first.
If the fluid is full the power steering pump could be bad, but usually they growl, and are noticeable.
Own one of these and had to replace both the hi pressure and return lines for the hydrulic rack and pinoin steering unit. The hoses are cramed directly under the motor towards the rear. It was a challenge!
you will need a pump pully remover and installer you can rent it from auto zone for 6.00 then just basic hand toolsis all youll need,you must pull the pull off first then you can get too the mounting bolts
I believe you have 2 beltson this engine. One for the alternator, a short skinny one. Loosening the alternator bolts and pulling the alternator towards the front of the car, and then tightening the adjusting bolt.
The other belt runs the power steering, a/c compressor and water pump. I think it has an idler pulley with a jack screw adjusting screw. loosen the screw to releive belt tension. good luck
