Got bumped last week on rear. Kept it running. Drove for a half hour, then shutdown. Now it won't start. It tried, turned over, then died. Pumping doesn't help. Never had to pump anyway. Allways started immediately. Signal, brake lights still work. No leak of fuel, all lines intact. Fuel pump mounts O.K. Should I take the whole thing apart? Check for voltage? Battery registers at 12.43.

for that half an hour while it was driving, was the car jerky? if so, maybe the fuel pump got hit or something because on my car before i replaced it my car would lose power, and then get it back after a few secs, creating a very jerky ride. after a while, it just completely died though. it's kinda far fetched, but check it out.
