My 1993 camaro and I were involved in an accident yesterday and of course the engine immediately shut off. I don't know my Camaro that well yet but I assume there's an emergency fuel cutoff somewhere in there. I've definitely gotta get my car running again. Anyone know where this switch is? Thanks in advance!

Later edit -I heard that GM does not put safety shutoff switches for the fuel pump in their vehicles, and instead has an oil pressure sensor that cuts the fuel if there is no oil pressure. Is this something I need to reset or check before starting my car again?

If your oil pressure switch was not damaged in the accident, then it should not need to be replaced. The oil pressure sensor screws into the block and has a weather tight connector on it. I don't believe there is anything to reset with the oil pressure sensor at least not on my 96 there isn't. Your car is before the OBD II computers, so try disconnecting the battery for about 15 min then try to restart the car. If no luck, call Chevy and see what they say.
