What would cause a 94 Ford Escort to make loud noise when pushing the gas pedal after hitting a pothole on the freeway?

Does the noise happen all the time you push on the gas pedal or only at certain speeds?

The question wasn't clear, but there is a fuel cutoff switch located in the trunk normally that can get triggered during an accident or even hitting a hard bump or pothole. Mine tripped on my 1994 escort when I hit a large pothole on a dirt road. Anyway, there is a cover you open and you can reset it there.

Fuel cutout switch is a safety item. It functions only in the event of a vehicle rollover, by cutting off the fuel supply from the gas tank. This is designed to limit the amount of free fuel in the event of a fire. ======================================================= Also , in a collision or maybe hitting a bad pothole , anything that jars the vehicle enough

The 1996 Ford Escort had a self-adjusting system. If pushing on the pedal will not solve the problem, you are most likely going to need to change the ratchet system in the pedal.

Try checking the gas cap. if it is not tight, the engine light tends to come on at random times
