Newer car electric fuel pump problems

I am tring to fix a friends wifes 87 escort GT with a intermittent fuel pump problem,I have been driving it for a week and I can determine that the fuel pump is not comming on. When cold it starts just fine and when driven for awhile and shut off the fuel pump will not come on and when let sit for longer it will. What should I check,the relay,the inertia switch,the computer or the pump its self,now this pump is very noisey and thats where I am thinking the problem is but should I check the other things I mentioned first. Jeff

pump prob

you might want to try swapping the relay next time it happens . its easier than dropping the tank. hate to see you drop the tank then find out it was the relay. good luck.

If it not the relay, the pump might have a flat spot in it. I'm having the same problem with the wife's 2000 Caviler. Have to drop the tank to replace it.
