Do you access the fuel pump on a 1989 Ford Escort GT 1.9 through the trunk?
you may also be lucky enought to find a access panel beneath the rear seat. Good Luck
Why would the fuel cutout light come on on your 1989 Ford Escort GT and how do you go about fixing it?
Does the car start? because if it doesn't... then your fuel cutoff has been tripped, likely by the car getting hit closer to the gas tank and tripping the cutoff valve. if it's anything like the cutoff in a '91 escort, you should be able to take off the small panel access in the trunk/hatch and reset the switch, if it's the same, it's pretty easy
the timing belt is located on the left side of the engine in the engine bay. Most mechanics will probably have to disconnect the motor mount to elevate the engine to access the cover and belt. the cover has three bolts holding it. Of course, you would have to remove the serpentine belt to access. Be aware of the serpentine belts positioning, it seems to be a common question! Oops, misunderstood the question , thought…
open rear trunk...remove trunk interior closeout pieces and get access to forward part of trunk...motor is positioned just behind rear seat in trunk with four anti-vibration posts, be careful not to rip them. Disconnect hydraulic lines and elec conn and remove motor. Be careful hydraulic fluid will leak from motor..better off buying new one if yours is bad.
