Your car is not equipped with an inertia switch like most Ford cars. There is a fuel pump relay through that goes out which will cause the same problems.

Here is a guide and the fuel pump control relay so yo can confirm and fix the problem.

You should check the fuse as well

(Check out the diagrams below)

If it turns out to be the fuel pump we have a video that shows how to change the fuel pump out.

Please let us know what happens.

1995 cavalier. Let idle for approximately 45 minutes while blowing snow. Got in vehicle and hit accelerator and sputtered til it stalled out. Little below 1/4 tank of gas, added more gas and dry gas. Would spit and sputter but not run or idle. Can not hear fuel pump run when turning key to on position prior to starting. Used "dead blow" hammer to hit on gas tank to jump the pump but still nothing. Is there a reset button for the fuel pump or safety switch? I had a Ford EXP that had one but cannont locate it on this vehicle. Any help would be appreciated before dropping the tank

Unfortunately no reset button, do you have access to a pressure gauge, if so check the fuel pressure, check eng light on?
