If you hit a bump or something you fuel system has a switch that shuts the pump off. and you need to reset it if you look in your owners manual for fuel cut off switch it will tell you were it is at and how to reset it.
i think it is in the back and on the drivers side on the escort.
hope this helps
please rate me if you would
thank's

2005 gmc envoy, while at idle or driving under 25 my car will shut down, the dealer can't find anything wrong . doenst happen all the time but does do it. I was on interstate and traffic was at about 25-30...


GM used an automatic starting function on the envoys. The engine cranking after you let go of the key is normal operation. Under normal conditions you wouldn't notice it, but because the engine is not starting up immediately, it continues to crank in attempt to start the engine.
As far as the engine stalling goes, some basics that come to mind for the envoy are:
1) Is the throttle body dirty? A dirty throttle body can cause stalling at lower engine speeds.
2) Is there a vacuum leak at the engine? A vacuum leak can also cause stalling at lower engine speeds, depending on the severity of the vacuum leak.
3) Has anyone checked the fuel pressure? A fuel pump that's on it's way out can also cause stalling problems.

Sounds like this thing needs some quality diagnosis by a good driveability technician :)

cut off switch could still be bad. First my sure gas is getting to the engine....if so then this indicates that fuel system is working properly. Sounds like car may not be firering. Things that could cause this is coil bad, ingnition modual failed or maybe pickup coil."sensor maybe some where..timing out which would indicate timing belt or chain or gears are broke......Keep in mind these are just some things that could cause your problem and gives you ideal what to look for........hope this info helps and good luck....Please rate this post and if you need more help then fill free to contact me and we will try to get ya back on the road......

Have you checked the timing belt?

Battery is draining and car isn't starting


172. (R,M). Oxygen sensor not switching - system is or was lean - Single, Right or Rear HO2S - Fuel control .... 583. (M). Fuel pump current was excessive - Power / Fuel Pump Circuits ..niether one of these issues would prevent the engine from turning over, but if one came into the shop not cranking, look at the batery, jump it to eliminate it as a possiblity, and then turn to the starter
