Your timing belt is ok?? Maybe the impellers went on the water pump. Just a guess

You would need to check fuel pressure with a gauge, maybe the fuel pump is shorting itself out.

Now that it no longer blows the fuse, Do you hear the fuel pump prime when you open the drivers door. Get under the car on the passenger rear side and have someone open the drivers door and listen for it, unless it is in a quite space where you can hear it from the other side. As for checking, you will need to get a fuel pressure gauge kit ... I think HarborFreight has them for a decent price. I am not sure where to check it on our cars .... but when you are ready I am sure we can look it up in our bentleys.

That only works once after the car has been sitting for a good long while. It doesn't prime everytime.
Had you just gotten gas at a station that was having their tanks filled? Could be the fuel line (filter) got clogged. I'd look at the one under the door just in case.

Fuses blowing is usually a dead short. Not sure why they are not still blowing ... check for frayed wires, make sure you are getting the correct voltage to the relay, and if so, check for resistance between the relay and the pump. You might also check your ground ... make sure the vehicle is grounded well and all ground wires for fuel pump and other accessories are connected to the body well.
