thanks for the info on the relay. I did check the archives prior to
posting and found some info on the relay however with many, poor acceleration episodes were a symptom that seemed associated with the relay.
not more than five minutes passed between the engine dying
on the freeway shoulder and my tapping the fuel pump
with a tool resulting in the car starting up again.
the fuel pump does make a rather high pitch 'buzz' which i
don't think is normal. Audible from outside the car's rear.
Any further opinions are appreciated.
I won't discount the relay.
