Check for a part called a Inertia sensor. It is a safety device which cuts power to the fuelpump. Yours may be in the floor kickpanels or around the rear frame. You might check with Autozone or Oreillys for the location and picture of the part you are looking for.

All you need to do is press and hold a reset button on the sensor for 3 seconds or so. Then your fuelpump will work.

It could be the inertia sensor, but I just had this problem with my 1990 F-150 and it was the ICM (Ignition Control Module) which costs about 250 to replace if you can't do it yourself.

My 1993 Vette is driving me crazy!! It seems to always start 1st thing in the morning. Then I can drive it all day sometimes without any problems (doesn`t happen very often anymore) and some times I will...


Electrical issues are the most difficult to fix. If you can't duplicate the problem in the shop, you're usually out of luck. It could be a weak relay for things like the fuel pump, a weak electrical connection somewhere, problems with the circuit board inside the engine computer, and so on. It would help if you could narrow down the area of interest like fuel or spark. Carry a can of starting fluid and a spark plug tester and be ready to check things when it quits running or won't start. And check the computer for trouble codes even if the check engine light doesn't come on.

Car shakes and jerks


If it was a coil it would read "service engine" after about two weeks of driving. I would replace the motor mounts.

91 X 2 = 182,000 so why would you even listen

For $1100 I would drive it until it quit or fix it
myself or have a relative work on it

Ouit running while driving 65mph on freeway


Does engine still crank? If so you have to check for Fuel, spark, compression. when your engine quit ..odds are good you lost one of these. check for fuel since modern electric fuel pumps stop working without any warning.You should be able to hear the pump momentarily when you first turn the key to "ON" If good check for spark, modern "coil pack" spark systems have a few weak links. if engine cranks and you have spark and you don't know how to check for fuel spray some starting fluid in your air inlet and see if it will start momentarily

Just quit running while driving will still turn still over, getting fuel thought filter, i dont think im getting fire. 1990 2.2L ford probe


i had the same thing happen to me after it turned 200,000 miles.

All you have is a bad electric connecter to the fuel rail it's located over by the battery and that should help your problem.
i hope this helps and good luck.

i'm on here looking beacuse mine is hard to get started.
