How do i replace fuel pump?... is there a fuel cut off switch?... if so wear is it?

Fuel pump needs the gas tank dropped to change it. You will probably need a new locking ring too.

There is a shut off switch. It is located in the trunk on the drivers side under the trunk side lining.

Where is the fuel pump?

the fuel pump is located inside the gas tank. under the hood in black box[main fuse and relay panel] before you replace the pump, i suggest that you check fuel pump relay. or have you been hit from rear? you may need to reset the fuel pump shut off switch. you will find the reset switch in rear of car, look for a pop out panel on the left hand side when you open the trunk. push the switch in [like a reset switch for old t.v. push it in and then try to start the car before you replace the fuel pump please! but if you know for sure that the fuel pumps bad, drain all the gas out before dropping the gas tank. this will save you alot of trouble. also disconnect the positive cable from battery before you do anything!!!!!! hope this helps, merry christmas. and as always,if you need further assistance, please repost your question and an expert will be happy to assist.

Where is the reset button for the emergency shut off valve for the gas line

After a collision, if the engine cranks but does not start, the fuel pump shut-off switch may have been activated. The shut-off switch is a device intended to stop the electric fuel pump when your vehicle has been involved in a substantial jolt.

If your vehicle is a sedan, the fuel pump shut-off switch is located on the right side of the trunk behind the trunk liner.


If your vehicle is a wagon, the fuel pump shut-off switch is located behind the service panel on the right side of the cargo area.

Use the following procedure to reset the fuel pump shut-off switch.
1. Turn the ignition to the OFF position.
2. Check the fuel system for leaks.
3. If no fuel leak is apparent, reset the fuel pump shut-off switch by pushing in on the reset button.
4. Turn the ignition to the ON position. Pause for a few seconds and return the key to the OFF position.
5. Make a further check for leaks in the fuel system


Hope this helps (remember to rate and comment this).

Need to find fuel pump shut off switch for 1991 ford probe 3.0

It will be located in the trunk. A red push button switch. More than likely the problem is a fuel pump relay or bad fuel pump.

Engine wont get gas

Have you checked the fuel pump kickoff switch located in the trunk? It may have been tripped, even if the car was just bumped. It is usually located in the back of the trunk by the taillights, or hidden between the rear quarter panel and trunk hinge.
