Main Relay Question

Hey everyone... I just got a quick question. I have a 98 Camry V6... how many main relay is there? The only main relay I know of is the EFI main relay located under the hood on the driver side. My friend keeps on arguing with me that thats not the only one. Thanks for the reply.

no... the question originated from a problem i had. The problem was that during the day (semi-hot outside), I try to start the car... it would start but dies out after a couple of seconds. I tried again and same problem. After a few minutes later, I start it and it worked fine. Happened 2 days in a row now and me and my friend was arguing about the main relay (EFI under the hood). Maintenance is done frequently (fuel, air filter, etc.) Any of U guys have that problem or have any ideas?

Could be one of your sensors. If you're worried about the EFI just unplug the 15 EFI fuse for a minute it'll reset things. Did you play with your intake cause it coule be your MAF? Maybe a banana in your tail pipe?

could be a blown fuel pump...
could be a blown fuel pump fuse...
could be a lack of gasoline...
could be some bad spark plugs...
could be a poor connection with the battery...
many more i cant think of...
