Question about 1998 Mitsubishi Galant
The fuel pump relay is located below the dash, in the center console area bolted to the vertical metal uprights that support the dash.
Depending on production date, the MFI and fuel pump relays may come together or separate. If together, the relay comes as a module consisting of both relays attached together on a metal bracket.

Waterpump replacement requires removal and replacement of your timing belt. Because of this it is not your typical do it yourself repair. Engine timing is critical, and not having your belt set correctly can lead to catastrophic engine damage.
You can purchase a service manual at your local parts store to get an idea of what is involved, however this being an interference engine you should leave this job to a professional if you are uncertain enough about your abilities that you need to ask for help on it. The cost to replace the waterpump is far far less than the cost to repair a engine that had an incorrectly set timing belt.

Has it overheated lately?
My wife overheated our Galant and it just stopped working, it cranks but that's it.
I pulled the sparkplugs and found them wrapped in a gewey jelly like substance. Like an oil/antifreeze combo.
I am going to replace the entire motor for $1000 as taking it to the mechanics to theorize and practice may cost more.

do you have spark? How do you know if your timing belt is good? sometimes it doesnt break just shed the teeth which could be missing under the crankshaft. The best way to check is to have two people. have one try to start the car and see if the camshaft is actually spinning. The crankshaft will always turn but if the teeth are gone on timing belt this would cause the belt to stay in one position not moving the camshaft. so if you can remove the upper timing belt cover and do this quick inspection with someone that will tell you for sure. if it does look like it is spinning then by hand turn engine very slowly with plug coil wires removed. and make sure teeth are all there. It couldve jumped timing. (valve timing)

there are two relay for the fuel pump, one from the key to the fuel pump the other is called MFI relay. you will only get power to the pump when you are cranking over the engine. the MFI take over when the engine is running.. both are on the driver side of the center console under the kick plate you have too look close to the radio you will see a brass plate with one 10mm nut holding them on....

You can always verify its the correct relay by turning the relay over and looking at the markings There are 2 that will be numbered 30 and 97 they are flat poles that face opposite of each other. if you jump those two poles with a jumper wire,,, the pump should be activated if the pump is in fact good.
