Hi all
The Car in question is a escort MK6
At first I thought it was the fuel pump but now i think otherwise
the car wont start coz there is no fuel getting to the engine
there is 5/16 of fuel in the fuel tank
that is what the gage read when on leaval and when on a slop 3/16
the fuel gage on the clock set dials is reading nothing as the needle has completely dropped

but when it all wants to work as in the car will start the needle on the fuel gage goes back up to 3/16 (we are on the slope now)

i can understand it; if its the fuel sensor that is knacked then it should not effect the fuel inlet
if you pop the bonnet there is a bleed valve on the inlet of thee engine something that looks like a tier vale that lets you draw petrol
ignition on and bleed no consent stream of petrol

BTW i thought my clock set dials wear fufed as the seat belt waring light keeps flashing when all seatbelt sensors disconnected


???????
big help hear please
many thanks from the man with not enough tool to do the job

have you checked the fuel filter? the seatbelt warning will flash because its reporting a fault with the system.

The fuel cut off is in the drivers side kick plate.

The fuel filter is just behind the sill in front of the drivers side rear wheel underneath the car

Thanks for that info but I think its sorted for now anyway
Basically I bypassed the fuel pump wiring
So it came stright off the blk ignition ON to fuel pump
So the fuel pump is ALWAYS ON when the ignition is on and engine running too.
I know this is not the right way as the fuel pump is soposed to be on for 2 seconds only when the ignition key is turned

But could it all be a fault wit the ECU
engine reving up reving down on idle
seat belt warning light flashing
And now this
All of the above wired to ECU makes it suspect???
