2000 Ford Ranger Fuel Pump Relay

I have a 2000 Ford Ranger w/ 3.0 V6. In the last couple of weeks it has started to have problems starting. Sometimes when I turn the Key the starter has to run a longer than usual before the Truck turns over. Like its not getting gas. I changed my plugs and wires and still have the problem. I would like to change out the fuel pump relay but do not know where it is. If there is anything else to check let me know Im hoping its not the pump. Some people have said to change the fuel filter but I have never had a fuel filter cause much problem in any vehicle. So if anyone has any suggestions Id appreciate it. Also if anyone could point me in the direction of a 2000 Ford Ranger Chilton Manual that would help as well I have been looking for a few years now.

Does it start OK when warm? My Durango had a bad fuel pressure regulator. When it sat, the fuel would leak back into the tank, taking forever to fire. If I cycled the ignition on and off a few times, it would fire up instantly. As for the Chilton's, they are available. I also bought a Ford factory service manual on CD on EBAY for about $6.

There should be a diagram inside the cover of the under hood fuse box to show the location of the relay,when you have a no start situation, you might try tapping on it a few times,sometimes they stick when they get hot.but they are only $10.

You have some options, buy a fuel pressure guage and check for/eleminate proper fuel pressure, about $25.00.

Hope it is the filter and change it $10.00. Hope it is the relay and change it $20.00. Hope it is the fuel pump and change it $120.00.

If none of that fixes it. Buy a fuel pressure guage $25.00 and check for proper fuel pressure. If it is ok it is not related to fuel supply.
