Question just bought a 1995 e320 with starting issues.

First of all i would like to say, that this site is great and everyone seems very helpful. I have been looking the site over for a month now and I am impressed by the wealth of info I have found.
Let me begin, my wife and I purchased our first Mercedes. A 1995 e320 sedan, a beautiful car that seems to be in good shape. When we test drove it, it ran beautifully. We looked it over, and bought it at a good price.
Right after we bought it we noticed some starting issues. One day it might start ten times in a row and then the eleventh time it won't start at all. Very erratic starting also it will start if it gets a jump start. The wiring harness has been replaced by a previous owner. My mechanic told me no electricity was getting to the fuel pump. Could this be the fuel pump relay, and is that the little cube-like thing with prongs behind the battery. Also i noticed that gas is now leaking around the fuel pump area. Today when i went to start the car and i turned the key to the on position, [but i didn't start the car] i heard the fuel pump kick on and then continue to run. before the car was started.
My question is, does my relay need to be replaced as well as my fuel pump.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
