2002 ford escape just stoped running

Could be your electric fuel pump in gas tank. you can check it by turning the key on and take gas cap off and have someone to check to see if their is a noise saying the fuel pump is working. someone has to stand by where you put gas in your car and put their ear to the hole an listen when you turn key on, do not start the car just turn the key on and if they hear a noise like a pump running then your electric fuel pump is okay, but if don't hear a noise then your electric fuel pump is not working. it is hard to explain about the noise you will hear, but as long as they hear something when you turn key on and their ear is at the opening they will know what I am talking about. I've done 4 electric fuel pumps in gas tanks on different vehicles. good luck ! would like to know if you could hear the pump running when you turned the key on with the gas cap off.

I don't think the fuel pump is pumping. Car wont

you would have to fnd the gas line that goes to your motor disconnect and crank car to see if feul comes ,but some cars have a fuel line with a valve that you push in the little pin in the middle and should shoot out fuel looks like your aircondition line but it should be next to fuel injection line

The inertia switch has tripped I am not positive where the reset switch is, look behind the carpet just above where the passenger's feet rest. Call the dealer's service dept. to ask where it may be located.
