98 Ford Escort fuel issue

Asked by Jan 02, 2015 at 08:52 PM about the 1998 Ford Escort 4 Dr SE Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1998 Ford Escort that ran amazing up until this morning, The car turns over
but does not start. It is not my timing belt. Not my battery. A tiny small shot of ether
and she fires for a second and then dies out. I have never had a problem with her
starting, I understand it could be my fuel pump or the emergency fuel shut off switch
but is there ANYTHING else that it could possibly be?? We are a low income and by
low I mean poverty low income family and are having hell.
