FUEL RELATED PROBLEMS
I own a 1994 Ford Escort XL 1.9 liter engine that has 160,000 miles on the odometer. It has been a fairly reliable car. But the other day it left me stranded in the middle of traffic. My brother was the original owner and he told me that he had to replace the fuel pumpat one point. Naturally I thought that it had to be the same problem because I could not hear the little whirring noise which means the pump is not working. I finally walked to an auto supply store and bought a new fuel pump. The car started but with the check engine light on. I managed to drive home after a very long day. When I turned off the engine, I could not start it again! But now there is a Fuel Cut Off light on as well. What could the problem be? I don't know where to start checking. HELP![/B]
