Question about 1989 Volkswagen Fox 4 Door

Open Question

Does the 1989 vw fox have an inertia fuel cutoff switch? If so, where is it located?

Car runs great, but intermittently dies, and then will restart (usually). Replaced fuel pump and fuel pun relay - it still has the problem. Thank you

SOURCE: 2003 vw jetta tdi fuel filter

It is on the passenger side right behind the washer fluid fill tube. You can follow the fuel lines (look like 1/4" black tubes, some are clear) from the injector pump to it. It is a caniser a bit bigger than a normal looking oil filter and sits between the washer bottle and the metal that forms the wheel well. It is held in by a screw type clamp about half way down the cylinder. Probably isn't the fuel filter unless there is air in the lines to the injector pump or they didn't bother to fill the fuel filter up with diesel after putting it in. There is not a fuel pump in the tank in these cars so everything is sucked up by the injector pump and it needs to be primed properly.

SOURCE: 1989 Cabriolet Fuel Delivery problem

Mine was doing that, I checked carefully and found out the fuel accumulator was leaking especially at higher RPM's which starved the engine of proper fuel pressure causing it to idle up and down, change idle speeds, and sometimes just die. If your car starts up fine when cold and then shuts off until has warmed up, idles rough cold, and seems to lose power slowly then get it back when you give it gas, check the fuel accumulator. It is located beside the fuel pump, under the car body, right under where the rear passenger seat is and looks like an old ignition coil with two metal pipes going into it. There is a rivet type thing on the rear of the accumulator that tends to leak when it gets older. The leak does not allow the accumulator to store the pressure needed for cold starts and high RPM's. Rub your finger over the accumulator and check for any signs of gasoline leakage and if so, replace it.
My gas mileage was also at 17 MPG city which was because the accumulator was leaking all the time. When I replaced it I got 27 MPG in the city.

SOURCE: 1989 vw cabriolet fuel pump test is there a way

yes. Depending on where your fuel filter is located, you can disconnect the fuel line at the fuel filter and then try to crank the car over. If it spits fuel out of the disconnected line your pump is working, if not then it's bad. Another way to tell, but not always is when you car is started you hear a high pitched whining sound from the tanks. This is usually (again, not always) an indication of a fuel pump about to fail.

1994 GMC Topkick not getting power from the fuel pump. Where is the fuel pump relay located?


Before going there, check your INERTIA SWITCH (INTERTIAL CUTOFF SWITCH). A small accident or a sharp bump can cause the cutoff switch to trip. The switch is located adjacent to the passenger side rear shock tower, and there is a pushbutton to reset (on most Topkick tucks). Carbureted Topkick trucks do not have cutoff switches, and some custom trucks have the inertia switch relocated.

1989 Ford Probe engine stalls. Will run intermittent and run up to 5k RPM...then die. I hear fuel relay click under dash (replaced w/fuel pump, inertia switch & fuel rail regulator). Wiring? Air hose...


First, the power relay turns on engine computer. Then the engine computer turns on the fuel pump relay which in turn, turns on the fuel pmp for 5 seconds, unless the engine is running. If you have a new pump, check for spark right after it dies next time.
