Hi Im new to the forums

Ive got a question about an 88 XJ 4.0L I own. Its alll stock, I was going down a really rough trail this weekend, hit a big bump and it shutoff. It cranks over, but doesn't seem to be getting any fuel.

I was wondering if there was a fuel safety cutoff like a lot of other cars have turnoff when they get rear ended. I looked under the panels in the back hatch area and the passenger kick panel, couldn't find anything. I did a few searchs on google and nothing.

Any Suggestions would be appreciated.

Check to see if the fuel pump is getting power at the pump. If not it may be the cps. If it is getting power then something might be screwed up inside the tank (cracked metal line, rubber line fell off, broken wire).
