Question about 1991 Ford Escort
My son has a 91 Escort that has had fuel problems for about a month. It would start just fine but when it would be at a stop, like at a light or stop sign, it would die. It would fire right back up but most of the time would die again immediately. It was almost like it wasn't getting any fuel to the engine at all. We thought it was moisture in the gas line so put in some Heat in the tank. That didn't work because the Fuel Cutoff light came on and it wouldn't start at all. Is it the fuel filter, pump, and what do I do about the fuel cutoff switch/light? Thanks!
Try opening the trunk look at the right hand side where the wheel well is. There should be a pannel with a hole in it. If you pull that out there is a red button. Make sure it is pushed all the way down. I had it mess up in my hatch back if I hit bumps in the road.And make sure it is over a 1/4 of a tank im my sedan if it is not the gas sloshes around and I loose fuel to the engine and it dies. Trying to find a fixt for this.

Replace the fuel cut off switch. In the trunk I think. see owner manual for location & info. It's there to shut dwon fuel pump in an accident
