My Jeep got rear ended and will crank over but will not Run. I can feel the relay kick in for the fuel filter when I turn the ignition on. I sprayed some starting fluid and it ran on the fumes for a second or so. I looked at most of the gas lines and they seemed fine. What is my Problem?

My car has an automatic transmission.
