The fuel shut off valve on a 2000 Chevy S10 pickup is located just outside the gas tank. It is designed to shut fuel off to the fuel pump in the event of an accident to prevent a fire and to kill the engine.

I think it is inside the RCM or Restraint Control Module and you can not turn it on and off like the older ones. It only shut the fuel off in an accident where the air bags go off.

From what I've been told Chevy's do not have fuel shut off devices.

It doesn't need a shut off valve. In fact only Ford Motor Company installs fuel shut off valves in their cars.

The service manual states there is a "fuel cut-off" valve which sends evaporated gas in the fuel tank to the EVAP canister in the engine compartment. The valve is located in the fuel tank. I am not sure if this is what you are referring to.

We would need to know the vehicle to answer this. To my knowledge primarily Ford used roll-over switches to shut off the fuel pump, other manufacturers use different methods, not a shut-off valve.

It is internal to the fuel injection pump.

Chevrolet does not use inertia/reset switches.

in my 2000 b3000 it is under the passenger glove box next to the fuel pressure release valve.

If you have such a valve, it was installed as an aftermarket modification. Check with whoever installed it.

If you're looking for a fuel pump inertia switch, the Mazda 626 does not have an inertia switch like the fords use. The only parts that control the fuel pump are the pcm, fuel pump relay, and the fuel pump fuse.

Jeep doesn't use a shut of switch. The fuel system is computer controlled through relays.

It does not have one, You have to remove fuel pump relay to shut fuel off.

you may have have a fuel shut off safety valve. They automatically shut the fuel off to avoid fires. it will be in your owners manuel.
