My stem has 2 fuel pump relays 1 of them gets hot does this mean that my fuel system is not woeking properly

If the relay is hot to the touch that means that the actuating coil is burning out and not closing the circuit for the fuel pump or the fuel pump is shorting out and the points in the relay are getting hot. Test the units with a multimeter.

Truck is trying to run,seems to be starving for fuel

If there are no leaks anywhere along the fuel lines, your fuel pump inside the tank is trying to tell you that it needs to be replaced.

87 chevy 350 tbi will only start if if pour gas in the throddle body then keep it running by pumping the peddle. It seems to starve at higher rpms, and when it does idle the rpm's swing from hig

Sounds like the fuel pump is going bad(or in this case,has gone bad). I suggest that you change the fuel pump and use a fuel cleaner in your gas tank as dirty gas may have caused the problem to begin with.

My 2002 Intrigue will not start and seems it is starving for fuel.

You said you checked the pump. Is the pump getting voltage after the 3 or 4 seconds from the relay ?
You get voltage for the pump in the first 3 seconds then none if the engine does not start and produce oil pressure. That is to prevent a fire in a wreck.
Can you jumper the pump relay and hear the pump run past 3 seconds ?

2002 duramax diesel that seems to be starving for fuel. replaced the fuel filter and no help. The fuel lines are colapsing at the fuel filter.

try to replace the fuel pump. possibly cause might be you replaced your filter a little to late, that some dirt already entered your pump. also, try to clean the fuel lines itself.

Car seems to be flooding or starving of fuel. iv replaced the machanical fuel pump and fuel filter. When i open the throttle it splutters but if i feed it very slowly it runs fine

It sounds like it could be time for a carb rebuild. The float could be sticking, it sounds like it is starving for fuel. Be sure to check all your vacuum lines too. This is more for fuel injected engines but I would try Techron fuel treatment available at most parts stores. I usually don't believe in any of these products but have actually had good luck with Techron. You would probably need the smaller of the two sizes available. It's worth a try.

Your fuel pump is most likely the problem, well at least it was with mine that was doing exactly the same thing, pump is prohibitively expensive to repair or replace, mounted small electric pump to fuel line where it comes through the fire wall, problem solved for a little over $100.00
