K so, long story short im a dumbass lost control wet road on a turn overcorrected, hit a curb, not to bad, but bad enough, rim got a lil chunk rubbed off, i was probably going 30kmh ish but slower by the time i hit it and slammed on brakes but it didnt stop soom enogh, **** anyways im sad cuz i feel like an idiot, but im rambling sorry. K so after o hit it it stalled cuz i missed the clutch somehow, fan was on for a couple seconds, 20 maybe, just ot the charging fixed a wire under hood was broken, uhhm, its on electric fan which takes a lot of power so im assuming thats why it didnt start, batt was to low, so i push started it then it was goin but as soon as i came to a light i had it in neutral rpms just fell then it died, push started again kept rpms up cuz o was like wtf but then i let off gas while coasting and it went all the way down again, so idk wtf why it would be doing that after that curb hit????!!! Please help i just want to be able to drive this car with no problems ready :mesad: :weeps :sadcry :(

Fuel Safety Cutoff Switch. It's a little ball and spring switch that is designed to cut the electricity to the fuel pump in the event of a collision. In the trunk just to the left of the license plate behind the carpet if memory serves. Press the little ball on top of it down.

That may or may not resolve your problem.:?:

Well i started it same night a few hours later, it was idling kinda pulsey, from like 1000 down to 7 ten back up but not always down that low, it idles onconsistantly anyways about 1-200 rpm pulse. But anyways it didnt stall so i drove ot down the backlane and at the end of it i put it in neutral, it stalled, i had nothing on so it started back up and i just went back home... I still havent touched anything but ibstarted it tonight didnt seem to pulsey, took it for a ride bout an hour, no stalling, no problems, idk whats up with this thing, lotsa ghosts in it lol, im just glad o got to drive it for a bit! And no problems since hitting curb(that i notice), just need a new rim lol :p. :heha::kooky::?:

How old is your battery? Check your battery cables and test the battery and charge system first. Then pull codes if it checks ok.
Then look at changing the fuel filter if it is old.
Trauma can do strange things. Look at the simple things before going deep into the technical ones.

Im gonna post this on both of my threads.. K so charging problem is fixed, but i drove it today, i was scared to shut it off in fear of having to push start again, but i had to know, so i put it in neutral and let it coast and turned er off.. And wtf it wouldnt start battery light came on, poped clutch in 2nd gear and started driving and it did that weird rpm fall too stall again, but then i kept em up for a bit while at lights, (braking with left foot is weird) and it idled okay for the most part after that.. But the thing is the batt level is at the long tick and the one below it with heat and lights on while driving.. And then when i turned it off it went down a tick or 2 i dont understand... I thought the problem was fixed :( :'( :eek:hknow :eek:mg: :weeps
