      When I park my 93 X it sometimes doesn't want to start. So I have to go under the hood and wiggle the fuel pump relay and it starts up fine. I just got a new fuel pump relay! What do I do?

      install the new fuel pump relay;)

      My friends wouldn't start like yours, but we replaced the fuel pump relay and it was fine after that. When you turn your key to the "on" position, does the fuel pump make a noise? Because it should. Who knows? Maybe your fuel pump is going bad too. We replaced his b4 the relay, but the relay was the problem. You could try cleaning the contacts on the relay itself or clean the terminals that it slides into. Also, check yer + and - battery cables, sometimes that helps too. Good luck
