SOURCE: fuels to rich and the car cuts out goin up hills

Two problems that I can see would cause all of that - a bad primary oxygen sensor (the one before the catalytic converter) and a clogged fuel filter. It's possible, if the oxygen sensor has been bad for a long time, that the cat is clogged with carbon residue from running too rich, but I'd change that O2 sensor and the fuel filter and see what happens.

SOURCE: car wont start it crank no gas fuel pump works i

if the fuel pump works then you may need to check and see if the fuel filter underneeth the car is not clogged.... you can check also under the hood at the fuel rail to see if you are getting fuel to the injectors... remove the cap and stick a pin in the valve while someone cranks the car over (remember to watch your face, while you are doing this, if it is reaching there it will come out at a high velocity)...

I want to cut an access panel to my fuel pump. Is the fuel pump facing the backseat or the trunk?

I do not think this is a safe idea, the tank is plastic and if you drive through it you may cause a fire.

Can shift solenoid cause engine to crank no start ? Or can safety neutral switch cause key stuck in on position and no start will crank in 2003 trailblazer.

No, It can not do that, Any of the solenoids in the truck will prevent it from cranking. I would suggest checking the fuel pump. its simple to check, Have someone turn the ignition key on until the dash lights light up. (do not crank the engine). When they do that, you need to get your ear as close as possible to the fuel tank. You are listening for a whineing sound. It will whine for about 2 seconds only, this is normal and means the fuel pump is working. If you hear nothing.... the pump has failed.

- When was the last time this car had a tune-up? Could be as simple as that. New spark plugs/rotor/distributor cap/condenser might do the trick.

Other causes could be:

- clogged/old fuel filter
- bad fuel pump

Polo 1.4 cutting out every 30 seconds

Do you hear the fuel pump cut off? Once your pump reaches pressure it should cut off. Also you can try and remove your fuel cap and see if the car will run just know it could cause your check engine light to come on so do not run it very long. If it continues to run with fuel cap off I would say it is your fuel pump. Good luck with that and the best thing to do is get a fuel pressure gadge and see what kind of fuel pressure you are running. I know there are some parts houses that will loan or rent you tools. Good luck.
