Probably not your case, but I hit a train crossing rather harshly... and it cued my timing belt tensioner to break... sucked... I dunno, jarring your engine that badly could really mess up a whole slew of things.

Does the engine turn over at all, act like its not getting gas? If it doesn't do anything... are your electronics working? Like door lights or radio? Could be simple as a battery connection came loose...

There's an inertia switch in the trunk. Perhaps it rattled and popped. Causing fuel cutoff. Try reseting it, (Pressing it.)

ive never heard of them being on mx6s, ive never seen one and idk of anyone with an mx6 that has. on my 95 its got a switch by the drivers side kick panel thats sorta like what ive heard the fuel cutoff described as, but idk what it is. :shrug: they are on probes, thats what rylinkus drives.

I thought someone with an MX6 had told me they had one. Maybe I'm wrong. Mines in my hatch on the left hand side under the carpet. If that helps great, if not sorry.

this happened to my friend in his escort...he hit a bump eating crap and it turned off....i think it was teh fuel filter or pump getting unplaced....let me find out and i'll post for ya

edit: Mightve been the starter cable....Does your starter work? is it cranking? and is it stick shift?

cuz if you can push start it then its probably the starter cable came off or something...
