SOURCE: Ford Escort 1998 fuel pump not working.

good old ford lol, try looking at the crank sensor its located at the front of the engine tucked in right hand side of exhaust manifold and gearbox, two pin plug, i have also known these to have no end of faults with the fusebox.
easy to remove, and solder the connections inside they all suffer eventually, if your not to handy with cars i recommend taking to a auto electrician, easy if you know how. Good luck Davelee

Starts but won't stay running

Turn off all your accesories and turn the key forward, but dont start it. You should hear the pump kick on for 2-3 seconds. Prime the system a few times then start it. This will narrow your diagnosis

I own a 1998 Ford Escort S.E 4 Cyl. I have to flick the ignition switch to start the car. I assume the check valve is bad. Does that come with a nerw fuel pump?

If you are saying you think the fuel pump is loosing pressure when the engine is off, then yes the check valve is in the pump. But it could also be a problem with the fuel pressure regulator.
A mechanic would check the fuel pressure at the engine and find out if it is dropping off.

Car will run fine for days then will start to act like its losing pressure was told fuel pump was going bad its a 1998 ford escort se

when they get hot (fuel pump) they lose pressure as they get older-fuel keeps the pump cool, so within reason, having a 1/2 tank or better should help unless it is past the point of usefullness-you are going to have to replace the pump, sooner better an later or it will leave you stranded.

1998 Ford Escort Sport, 4 cyl engine. Will not start; accessed fuel pump and determined it is not moving gas or coming on when the key is turned. Removed fuel pump and hooked it up to a power source and it...

did you check the INERTIA SWITCH? above the right rear wheel? sometimes even slamming the door or trunk will set it off. power goes to that switch and then to the pump. Fuse OK? Relay OK? You always check for power at the pump before going through the trouble to take it out.

Fords have inertia fuel cut off switch. You need to check that first. If you dont have fuel. If you have fuel and no spark you need to check for inj pulse to injector. Make sure no fuses are blown. If no spark and no injector pulse then replace cranksensor.
