Is the car diesel or petrol?

If a diesel, you might check the diesel pump drive belt (at the right side of engine when looking at the engine from front of car). It's possible the teeth on the belt have stripped and put the pump timing out. An alternative may be a "stop solenoid" failure. The solenoid stops diesel getting to the injectors when the "ignition" is turned off and "stalls" the engine.

I don't know if the injector pump on a petrol engine has a similar setup as a diesel but it might be worth checking.

My plymouth, voyager turns off while I'm driving it down the road..

Just an Idea. When it dies next time check the relay temperatures, if you can. Once I had a fan relay which would over heat and the radiator fan would not work. After relay cooled down it would work(This usually happened when I was stuck in traffic). Could be a fuel pump relay. If relay is a lot hotter than the other relay could be bad relay. My thought is it will not cost you anything to try it. I think it may be something electrical over heating. 30 years ago my thought would have been the coil, when the coil started going bad it would heat up and the car would die till it cooled off.

Was driving down the road heard a high pitch squil engine staled 2002 Ford Escort ginding noise tuns over but won't start

This could possibly be a timing belt issue. In some cases the water pump will lock up, which is driven by timing belt on Escorts, and strips or breaks timing belt. This can be determined by removing the top center cover at front of engine and checking the belt.

My 2000 Ford Windstar is having some electrical issues. I was driving it home and the AC stopped working the radio went dead the odometer went dead my turn signals did not work and I could not roll down...

Check your alternator. My van did something similar. I was driving down the road and all of the sudden my windows, a/c, radio, door locks, speedometer, everything electrical went down. We stopped and tried to crank it and it wouldn't. Then finally it cranked up went another mile before the fuel pump quit working too. It was the alternator. I had to have someone come jump me off and follow me to the parts store and then home for it to be fixed.

I was rear ended hard and five miles down the road my car shut off the auto shop says its the fuel pump. Can the fuel pump be damaged cause of the accident it worked fine till then?

think you have knocked out the safety switch and it needs resetting to start vehicle,Dont know where this is on this vehicle though but it could be in the boot or under the bonnet but some vehicles have them behind the centre pillar cover or in the front footwell,it should be a smallish square thing with a red rubber cover ,just push the rubber cover down and it should click back on

Fuel pump will not prime..

Are you even sure it was the fuel pump to begin with?
All electric fuel pumps shut off after the key is turned on in just a few seconds.It will only run as long as the car is running. So it makes me think that the fuel pump was ok to begin with. You probably need to change the ignition module. Its the flat thing that the wires plug into on the side of distributor. Let me know what happens

1992 chevrolet lumina that cuts off sometimes won't start acts like it has trash in the line. It has new fuel filter, tune up, core pads, plugs and wires.

I hade the same problem, but I figured it out, My car is a 1992 chevey lumina Base modle sadan, v6/3.1L This car is electricly based, regardless of your problem replace all Fuses and Relays your fule injection, heater cor, every thing. trust me.

MY CAR PROBLEM: car would stutter and want to die every time I came to a stop, or slowed down. When I start the car it would idle really high, when I shift in to drive it would go back to normal, for a little bit. I checked my electrical center located on passenger side under the hood. I found that my fule pump relay had blown out. this is the main reason for fule pump going out. theas fuses are the real thing that makes this car run. replace them all. thay are like 20.00 dollars a pop but it will save you hundreds.

SECOND: bought a bottle of fule injection cleaner. spray this into your throttle body, connected to the air filter. lots of gunk. after that car stopped stuttering and has not died yet. I did my maintance on 7/15/08

good place to start. good luck
