I would recommend checking your relays to ensure that they are working properly. A faulty relay is more common than a fuel pump going bad. If your relays are fine, you may need to get a new fuel pump.

If you would like one of our technicians to come diagnose your problem, YourMechanic offers a repair and diagnosis service preformed by a certified mechanic that will commute to your location to inspect the relay and fuel pump.
