Where is emergency fuel switch on a 2000 olds sillioutey

Look for a removable plastic cut out inside of the cab on the side wall near the back wheel wells. Its under the cutout that you should be able to get to by prying it out the plastic cutout. It's a circle or rectangle about the size of your fist. Usually on the passengers side.

Is there a emergency cut off switch for this vehicle? I have changed the fuel pump and filter however vehicle still doesn't start. What have I missed?

All vehicles have an emergency cutoff switch. But did you check the fuel rail to see if it has gas under pressure when the key is turned on? When you turn the key on can you hear the fuel pump kick in with a slight hum for 2 or 3 seconds? Did you check the main relay for the fuel pump to make sure that it was good before you changed the fuel pump? How about the fuel pressure regulator? ARE YOU GETTING FUEL? Are you getting spark?

Is there a fuel reset switch in a 1990 Oldsmobile cutlass supreme

No GM doesn't use a reset switch (really called a "Inertia fuel pump cutoff switch"). The fuel pump is cut off by an oil pressure sensor. If this car has the original pump you likely just need to drop the fuel tank and replace the fuel pump. Does it start if you spray starting fluid into the engine air intake?

Fuel pump won.t pump were is the pump located in gas tank any way to prime carbarator

take the intake tube off the throttle body and spray your starting fluid in there. if it starts then dies, its your fuel pump. it could also be the pump relay, or inertia switch, aka emergency shut-off switch

Not getting fuel after changing the starter motor just wondering if there a safety shut off switch somewhere or if my fuel pump and starter went at the same time!!!!!

It seems there may be a shut off switch or you may have pulled a fuel pump connection loose while changing the starter. Some cars have a emergancy shut off to fuel in case of collisions, mine have mostly been in the trunk. research emergency fuel cut off for your make and model and research no fuel for same.
