Hi l've checked the fuel switch as u advice but still my car is not starting l also checked the fuel system plz help me 2005 ford bantam rocam engine l hit the pot hole then car just cut off and

Try spraying a shot of wd40 into a couple of the spark plug holes, reinstall plugs and wires and try again. The wd40 will allow the vehicle to start if there is spark. Check your coil pack connections.
Was anything torn off when you hit the pot hole?

Can you check if there is spark since you verified fuel ? please let me know. A car needs fuel (wd40) and spark to run.

Sounds like you hit it hard. It is possible to check your fuel pressure for fuel pressure coming to the engine while you crack it. If your fuel pressure is not between 30-45 PSI your fuel pump is damaged...

Where is the fuel pump located on 1994 ford e350 club wagon

Hello. They are located in the fuel tanks. I say tanks plural because it's a 350 Club. There is also a pressurized pump on the frame rail just to the inside of the frame, just about under the driver's seat, if it is equipped with dual tanks. It's a rare occasion that one cannot run the van without prior notice of a tank mounted pump going bad. I'd try the fuel interrupter switch located in the passenger's side kick panel before anything else. Push the button top to reset it and then try starting the van. If the vehicle has suffered a jolt, large pot hole, bump etc...

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.

On my 1999 ford escort zx2 coupe is the emergency feul switch in the same spot as the four door. i hit a really bad pot hole due to the weather. and my car slowly died like the alternator was going out,...

yea it sounds like the fuel cutoff inertia switch got tripped. it should be either in the trunk, or in the passenger side kick panel, on the right side, below the glove box. there should be a hole you can stick your finger in and push down on the button. you'll hear it click when it resets. there should also be a little fuel pump symbol like on your fuel gauge. and as always, check with the owner's manual.

I have a 1988 ford bronco ii that will not run. we replaced one fuel switch already but someone told me that there was another one, but I can not find it. do you know where it is. We were thinking that it...

Usually there is a sticker on the radiator support or somewhere in that area that lists where the fuel switch is. I believe there is only one though, near the passengers kick panel. Did you confirm you weren't getting power to the fuel pump?

I hit a pot hole in my ford focus and it died. is there a saftey reset switch?

You can check the fuel reset switch which should be located either in the truck on one of the side panels,or behind the kick panel inside the vehicle on the passenger side, if it was a big enough pot hole it may have tripped this switch. Hope this helps.
