best way find one at the junkyard and try it

To check if it's your main relay, turn the key to run (don't crank it) and you should hear the fuel pump prime for about 2-3 secs then a 'clunk' noise from where the relay is. If it does that, your relay is fine. If not, look for a new relay.

I'm having the same problem. The plugs, distributor, and wires are all new (11 months old). I tries the main relay, but that didn't fix it. The fuel pump and filter are fine and the injectors seem to be working fine (misty-spray while cranking). Now i'm going to pull out my icm and have it tested. What else could it be?

check you battery and make sure its good...otherwise ive seen other posts and it ended up being the ignition switch that was faulty
