I have a 97 Tahoe 4 wheel drive 5.7 liter. It is dying while running down the road. When I open the hood I noticed the fuse block was extremely hot I opened it and noticed the fuel pump relay fuse was burnt somewhat and the spot the fuse fits in  the fuse block is burnt a little as well. it will go down the road anywhere from 100 yards 2 8 miles before it dies. Any help would be very appreciated assoonas possiblethank you very much sorry if some of the words are running together it's my phone.

    I've waited to post because I think others will know more and know better. But I think you've answered your own problem here with the burnt contacts and burned plastic holding those contacts. That allows movement to cause the contacts to loose connection. Your best bet would be the fuse block from a wrecked truck. Probably lots of work to switch. Or insert fresh contacts into just those spots and cobble insulated and protected wiring to the fuse and the relay contacts.

    Don't forget to remove the battery ground before working here.
