The fuel pump might work fine but the fuel sending unit might not work best way to check is to put some safety glasses on and press the little schrader valve on your fuel rail to see if you have pressure if no pressure then the sending unit isnt working properly

I have a 1997 Ford Escort, and it will start but immediately cut off. You can hear the fuel pump turn on when you start it. What could be the problem?

Hello awlashun,

Try spraying starting fluid into the air box if it starts it's a good possibility that the fuel pump is bad.

If you have a fuel pressure gauge check the pressure it should be 35-45 psi.

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.

Just switched a dead fuel pump in a 1997 Ford Escort and changed the filter as well. But it seems like there is still no fuel getting to the injectors. I can hear the pump run but no fuel is getting to the...

if it doesnt start with quick start then the problem is not fuel related. You have an ignition issue like a bad crans sensor or ignition module or even possible a blown fuse if you have a ECM or ING fuse

Sound in the fuel pump

Fuel pumps sound like that when they get old. You might want to replace it soon
