I have a 1994 nissan altima, just changed the fuel pump relay about 3 weeks ago, today I stopped at a parking lot, turned my car off, then when I went to start it, it started for a few seconds, then died on me, then I restarted it, and lasted for maybe a second, then died on me, then I wasn't able to get it turned back on, its cranking but wont turn over.

I took off the bottom hose of my fuel filter, and put the hose into a cup, then I turned the key to turn on the electricity and I didn't hear the fuel pump prime itself, I turned the key a few times, and then finally I turned and key all the way to start it, multiple times but still never heard the fuel pump, so then I jumped out and checked the cup with the fuel hose running to it, and it was completely dry. So I checked the fuel pump fuse and it's good, then I bought a new fuel pump relay and put that in and kept priming it, and trying to start but it wouldn't, so now I'm thinking it's the actual fuel pump.

I bought a fuel pump off amazon for $21 and it should be here in 2 days, but I'm just wondering if that's going to actually fix it, the fuel pump is about 2 years old and it's another cheap $20 fuel pump off amazon, so I'm guessing that's it, I'd appreciate it if anyone else has any ideas, thanks guys! Love this site!

Hopefully, the new pump will last. If possibly, I always stick with OEM parts when it comes to fuel pumps as I've ran into or heard of too many problems with aftermarket units. Saving a few dollars isn't worth the time and aggravation of getting stuck somewhere!
