If it (THE FILTER) doesn't say "MOTORCRAFT" on it then they changed it, THE FILTER IS LOCATED UNDER THE HOOD TO REAR OF ENGINE ON DRIVERS SIDE.

Where is fuel filter


The last picture below is a picture of The fuel pump inertia switch for a 1997 Ford Escort. it is located inside the trunk immediately below the hole in the trunk side trim on the drivers side. You first should disconnect the electrical connector for the inertia switch. Then start engine and let run till the engine stalls as to relieve the fuel pressure. Make sure to reconnect it after finishing the replacement of the filter.

1997 ford escort 55 van location of fuel cut off switch


Hi there:The fuel pump shut-off switch stops the fuel pump when the vehicle has been involved in a collision or major jolt. If the vehicle does not start, it is possible that the fuel pump shut-off switch needs to be reset.

If you see or smell fuel, do not reset the switch or try to start your vehicle. Have all passengers get out of the vehicle and call the local fire department or a towing service. This and other details could be find in the Ford Escort Owners Manual...

1996 ford escort died when i was driving right after i went over a small pot hole and will not start. It was low on gas..could iy be the fuel filter


Ford vehicles are equipped with a fuel pump cut off switch that will shut power to the fuel pump in the event of a collision. By hitting the pothole, there was probably enough "force" making the switch mistakenly shut off the fuel pump. The switch should be located in the trunk either on the left or right side. Locate the switch and press the reset button. If it clicks when pressed, then the switch was activated. Try starting the car. If it starts, then that was the problem. I own a 1997 Ford Escort and the same thing happened to me...the pothole caused enough "force" thereby the switch took it as an impact. I hope this helps you out.

Where is the fuel filter on a 1997 ford escort?


The fuel filter is located beside the master cylinder. To the left of it, standing in front of the car. Might require special tool to remove fuel line couplings from the filter.

Where is the fuel filter located on a 1997 Ford Escort?


Between the engine and the firewall. If you lean over the engine and look down you'll see it. Kind of hard to change, two clips you have to pry off the ends and then replace. plus a clamp that holds it in place. Might be easier to just take it to shop. We do these in minutes, very cheaply at my shop, but could be a pain in the **** at home.
