My daughter bought her Trax last November. It had 32k miles on it and has put about 10k on in 11 months. A lady hit her drivers side in a Walmart parking lot. That damage was repaired, but the O2 sensor makes the car die when she fuels and the water pump won`t hold water at all. The body shop says it is consistent with a front end collision and not a side impact even though there were no problems with either before the accident. There is no reported damage on the car fax and the dealership did not disclose any damage at the time of purchase. The airbags have not deployed and there is no visible signs that there ever was front end damage. Can this happen from a side collision? Has anyone else come across this problem before?

Not suppose to refuel with engine running.
That would be the purge valve if it dies while refueling with engine running. It was replaced according to your invoice.
Was there coolant on the ground after the impact?
Finally yes a side impact can brake parts that can't be seen by a visual inspection.
