Engine sputtered and died at a stop sign.  Cranked, but wouldn't start.  Pump primed with key and had fuel pressure at the fuel rail.  A few hours later the car fired right up.  It has started fine several times since then and has idled for over 30 minutes.  KOER shows code 96. 

Is there any point in testing the fuel secondary circuit when the car is starting and running fine?  If the engine died because of loss of fuel, why wouldn't it start when I could hear the pump and had pressure at the rail?

Thanks in advance.

if it were me i would replace the fuel pump relay. it's cheap. i've had headaches trying to solve problems that were caused by seemingly good relays that test good and only occasionally be problematic while hot....or at least keep a spare relay in the glove box so if it happens again you can swap it out.

Thanks Rob.  I had read that topic, but wasn't sure if those steps applied to an intermittent issue. 

I guess I will replace the relay and get a spare.  I last replaced it over 5 years ago with a Ford relay.  I just don't want to get stuck somewhere again.  :/
