thermostat didnt open car overheated, now just turns over says fuel lockout

Asked by Jul 25, 2013 at 09:03 PM about the 1994 Mercury Tracer 4 Dr STD Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1 Answer


They're unrelated. Fuel lockout is a safety device in the trunk - an inertia switch - that shuts the fuel off on impact. If you have the electric automatic seat belts, they won't work either. A red button in the trunk - usually on the driver's side - owner's manual knows best. I have a '93 Escort with 580,000 miles - 2nd engine, 3rd automatic trans. Easy to rebuild and the parts are plentiful.
