You might find the problem is something like a loose wire come off a coil Earth off battery or something silly like that so first check spark when turning engine over ,,if ok then go to fuel line either come off or cracked or broken pipe..if dont turn over at all then check battery by turning on lights and try starting if lights go out or dim then the barrery is faulty

Bought 2012 Fiat 500 Pop that has front end damage. Key stuck.


To remove the key, you take off the steering wheel covers. Underneath, there is a red tab to push in. Push in the red tab and remove key. Fuel cut off is your next problem. You use your directionals to reset the airbag module to turn on fuel. The procedure is listed in the owners manual under " in case of accident"

I have a 1979 fiat spyder 2000 and i am having problems. it seems once the engine warms up, usually 5-7 miles down the road, it starts missing. i push down on the gas and the engine shakes, spits, and...


It sounds like the air bypass valve is not closing after warmup and this sounds like a temperature related problem. Air bypass is used much like the old choke on carburated cars for cold starts.

Few months ago had fuel pump assembly replaced. Not the pump but the assembly. Location is behind the rear seat above the fuel tank and actually its in the tank but can be reached by removing the rear seat...


I would say that you are on the right track , I think that maybe when the work was done on the fuel pump assy the mechanic may have pinched the power wire and hitting the bumps has caused it to short.you will have to take the seats out again (sorry).You need to look for a damaged wire or evidence of arcing .Hope this helps.

I hit a small bump. My car cut off and would not start back. It will turn over but will not crank.


hi its probably the fuel cut off switch. in an impact an enerchia switch will cut off the fuel pump. your local dealer will tell you where its fitted and its just a push of the switch and away it will go.

No fuel to engine. f250 460 cu engine. stalled on street


Check to make sure the fuel pump is working. On the fuel rail there is a test port that you can connect a mechanical gage too. Also there is a fuel cut out switch under the dash closer to the floor that has a reset button on it. If you hit a very hard bump it can trigger the cut out switch. It is designed so that upon impact in a collision it cuts the fuel supply to the engine to prevent an engine fire from leaking fuel. Sometimes these switches go bad, But, try the reset first and be sure to check that the fuel pump is working.

Solution for cars Exhaust hitting road bumps


It sounds like your springs and or struts are well worn out from probably about 12 years of holding up the weight of the car and its passengers. The added weight of the second person is pulling the car down that much more now that the suspension has worn out. I'm not familiar with a Punto but I bet its a small car, the smaller the car the smaller the suspension (unless its a Porshe) and they usually last about 50,000 to 70,000 miles before you start to notice a "soft" suspension, swaying in turns and bit of role as you take turns hard. Hope it helps.

Hit bad bump in road and car died


I think that year still had the inertia switch in it. If it is bumped hard enough it will shut the fuel pump off. This is in case of an accident. It does have to be manually reset. They are usually under the passenger side kick panel. The dealer should be able to tell you where it is at for sure.
