Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today.
What lead up to you noticing this hot relay?
Judging by my reply to you 17 minutes ago requesting more information I would say yes, I am here.
shut down last night wentback later started shut down 45 min later checked fuse ok relay hot bought new relay same thing
OK so the car will not start, but it has 60 PSI fuel pressure and you feel the relay is too hot, correct?
runs till relay shuts down
Relays do not shut anything down unless they are bad. What is making you think the relay is shutting it down?
its getting hot
Get the temperature on that and a nearby relay that also has a constant load on it for comparison.
can touch one next to fuel relay fuel relay gets to hot to touch
I need to know the temperature in degrees. I dont ever trust a finger thermometer. It has a constant 20 amp or so load. I expect it to be hot to the touch. What I want to know is if its so hot it doesnt work. Ive never seen a relay cause an issue of this sort.
melting black plastic on it that's hot
How many amps is the fuel pump drawing through the relay?
