Hit a bump and truck quit. turns over but will not fire.

First thing I would think of is something electrical became disconnected. Did you ground out? Easy to damage something, though manufacturers are of course aware of that, so they try not to place anything which would be susceptible to damage from bumps and especially grounding. How is the fuel filter and hose? usually easy to get at, and cheap to replace. Gasoline engines are more tolerant of lower fuel pressures compared to diesel which run at higher pressure, and that pressure is critical to allow the injectors to properly mist the fuel.

So get out your creeper and strong flashlight and start looking, then start checking EVERYTHING in the engine compartment, and finally connections inside, including fuses and relays.

And of course checking your OBD can often tell you the problems without even getting your hands dirty.

Since an oil change was done the headlights blink off and on how can they be fixed

It sounds like they may have just bumped a connection loose. You could call the shop you had your oil changed at and explain your situation and they may be able to have you drive back to the store so they can double check any connections they could have bumped. Its pretty common, also you could also try going to advanced auto or auto zone and most of the time someone would be glad to help check them too. I always get great service or advice from those stores. I guess it depends on the "willingness" and knowledge of the sales rep. as well as how busy your local stores are when you go in. Hopefully that got you pointed in a few helpfull directions to start with.

My 2001 expedition will not start. It does not even turn over. You could bump the area where the fuel safety switch is and wiggle wires and it would start, but now it won't even do that. Can I che

Check that area again that you used to tamper with to get it to start. If you already had an issue, then it is more likely that this issue has become worse over time. Check this first before continuing. It sounds like your fuel safety switch was faulty to begin with.

Won't start

check for fuel cutoff switch reset button. these are designed to shut off fuel in case of accident but they will some times be activated on blowout or even when you hit a pothole or speed bump. your local parts house can tell you its exact location, should be in rear window washer compartment or glovebox.

How do I reset the computer after changing the battery in my 2004 mini cooper S? The car started three times. Now it won't start even though all of the other electrics work

Turn off ignition. Press and hold the trip reset button, then turn the ignition on (don't start the engine), within 5 sec the SIA status will be displayed. Release the reset button. Press and hold the trip reset button for 5 sec, "rst" will be displayed. Release and re-press trip reset button.

The new status should be displayed.

Does 1994 Plymouth Laser have fuel pump problems?

I think you may be on the right track .. I din't know plymuoth very well but the older Jaguar had that feature when there was a bump near the fuel tanks it would shut off the fuel ... perhaps your car has a similar switch... ask a dealer .. asking is free
