    there is no reason the fuel shut off would open, that takes an impact event.

I turn my 2000 model Kia Sportage on its side now it wont start what is the problem


Could be as simple as resetting your fuel pump. There is a button usually in the trunk for just that purpose. With a car on it side it will stop it from pumping more fuel. Check your owners guide or dealer for switch location. Quick and easy please let me know if it works!

2002 kia rio has fuel to fuel rail ,has spark ,won,t start


So, obviously you have a fueling problem and you will need to find out if the injectors are spraying or not. Check the battery voltage as often the injectors will be shut down if voltage is down around 10 or 10.5 volts. Check the wiring to the injectors also.

I have an 2003 ford expedition that just stopped . i first changed fuel filter, fuel pump, cleaned injectors, changed filters, spark plugs, cleaned throtle, then had it checked further and tjhe mechanic...


Probably the inertia switch for the fuel pump..You owners manual should show you where its located..See if the button has pop up ..If it has push it back down until it clicks..If it wont stay down then hold it down and see if it will start..If it does you will have to replace it..If thats all good then check the relay for the fuel pump..

Front right side hit . replaced concerter and won't crank over /or start fuel pump doesn'd even come on when key is on ?


ricks63toy, I believe that Ford still uses what is called an inertia switch even in the hybrids. This switch will shut off in the event of an accident shutting off the fuel pump. This is a safety feature built into the vehicle. Seeing that this is a newer vehicle I trust that you still have the manual. If not, the switches are usually located in the trunk. Look on the side walls of the trunk and see if you can locate it. It is usually marked by a sticker. When you find the switch, push the red button down until you hear a click. This will reset the switch and allow power back to your fuel pump. Good luck with this.

SOUND LIKE FUEL PUMP GOING BAD.YOUR FUEL LEVEL SENDING UNIT IS ALSO GOING BAD ITS PART OF THE FUEL PUMP ASSEMBLY.FIRST HAVE CAR SCANNED TO SEE WHAT TROUBLE CODES IS.REPLACE FUEL FILTER AND FUEL PUMP RELAY FIRST THEY ARE CHEAPER ROUTE THEY COULD BE THE PROBLEM.BUT FUEL PUMP COST BETWEEN $300.00 TO $700.00 THAT WHY CHECK FILTER AND RELAY AND HAVE IT SCAN BEFORE BUYING ANY HIGH PRICE PARTS.IF FUEL PUMP GOOD I BELIEVE YOU CAN BUY FUEL SENDING UNIT SEPERATE DONT HAVE TO BUY WHOLE PUMP ASSEMBLY BUT CHECK AROUND SOME AUTO PARTS PLACES WILL MAKE YOU BUY THE WHOLE FUEL PUMP ASSEMBLY JUST TO FIX THE FUEL LEVEL SENDING UNIT.

Where is the fuel pump? is it in gas tank? the car will start go a few blocks and shut off and not restart. I think it is fuel pump, may be fuel filter I also need to replace throttle positioning switch....


yes it is in the tank. but you can remove the rear seat to get to the fuel pump, instead of dropping tank. (2003 to 2005) kia sorento. fuel filter is inside tank and replaced with fuel pump as an assembly.

Fuel system shutdown


Check for an impact shutdown switch- this is to stop fuel pumping in case of an accident. Switch is probably in or around the access door on the left rear interior. I've seen this problem in a lot of vehicles, havent had the prroblem with my Sedona.\, so I don't know exact switch locatioin. If your vehicle is high milage, it could also be fuel pump failure. Check all fuses too, include the block under the hood on the left side.
