Is there a fuel reset button on a 1998 Buick century in case of a front end bump


No. Ford is the only manufacturer that uses a resettable inertia switch to cut power to the fuel pump in the event of a collision.

Front end noise


front brake pad hardware is worn out , causing pads to move around when jarred , applying brakes tightens pads and noise will go away

Fuel filter for 2003 Ford F150. Engine idles rough, think it is fuel related since it started after fuel fill-up.


I'm guessing you ran out of gas? when you do that the pump can pick up trash off the bottom of the tank and clog the screen in the fuel pump. This will sound really odd but give it a shot, I do this as a simply shooting thing. find a street or dirt road that has ALOT of bumps and will jar the truck around. drive down. after doing so did it help anything. I'm saying this because driving on a surface like that can help knock trash loss from the screen and filter. The more direct way to check this is dropping the tank checking the pump and replacing the pump screen and the inline fuel filter. you can also check your fuel pressure at idle.
do you have any problems on fast acculturation? this is also caused by clogged filters or a pump that is going out.
Let me know what you find

JVC-R125 old Auto radio-cassette. Cassette works fine, radio used to work. Started cutting on and off over bumps in road. now the radio will not work at all. Thanks Tommy Herman This was an add on...


sounds like it has a bad connection if it only happens over bumps as this will jar the connections causing them to make and brake contact causing the radio to cut in and out,weather its an internal or external problem.

The dash light indicates I have a door opened and a chime dings when I hit a bump. All the doors are closed.


Check the 2 contacts on the passenger sliding door. If the door is out of adjustment they will have poor contact and a bump will jar it and turn on the light and chime. Make sure the side door closes securely.

That part is called a "fuel inertia cutoff relay". It's there in case of a collision.............and cuts off the flow of gas. Sometimes it will pop up after hitting a large bump or jarring motion, while driving. Not B.S.

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.
