Do I need to change the entire strut component or can I just change the shock component

Spark plugs?

Replaced old battery with a brand new one
Connected cables to new battery. There was a spark. Car shows no signs of power.

Had gotten gas other day at different place. Following day car was chuggy, added more gas at my usual place, car still chuggy, stalls at lights when stopped or Chugs like it's going to stall. I thought it might be bad gas from the previous day before now not so sure. Any indication on what it mite be. Has chugged before previously but never to this extent where it stalls.

Searched for correct parts but do not know which version I should be getting: Clutch Flywheel Ring Gear - standard, flat, 132 teeth or MTX / Flywheel - flat or 20 teeth/splines. As far as the clutch kit goes I don't really know what to look at as a deciding factor. I tried to get a more complete description and specifications for the parts on the fordparts.com site but that wasn't any help either. Since I'm living on a partial pension I can't afford to buy the parts from their site but I don't want to order the wrong parts and get hit with return shipping & restocking charges either.

Everything is operating normally until they eng temp drops then its cold air. Is it the ccrm,and can I repair or replace it

then rev it also now the transmission is acting like its going out but not its really herky jerky but only at slow speeds I almost think it could be electrical

My car started overheating, then got normal after a while. But once parked and turned off for a while I tried to go to the store later that day and my car started, but I drove a little and it shut off on me. I can crank it and it makes a sound but instead of starting it sounds like the engine is flooding. I cranks but doesn't start. I have all power, it cranks, but it won't start. What is going on with my car?

I dropped a valve seat #4
And damaged the piston a bit but cleaned it up cylinder walk is good can I use the existing one or can I put a good used piston
Thanks for your help

CAR DOOR OPEN ALL NIGHT, HAD TO BOOST CAR TO START. THAT AFTERNOON BOUGHT A NEW BATTERY. HUSBAND PUT BATTERY IN BUT CAR DID NOT START AND ALL FUSES UNDER HOOD BURNED OUT. SO, HE THOUGHT HE MUST HAVE PLACED BATTERY IN BACKWARDS, SO HE TURNED IT THE OTHER WAY AND REPLACED ALL FUSES UNDER HOOD. WHEN HE WENT TO START THE CAR, IT DID NOT START AND FUSES UNDER HOOD ALL BLEW OUT AGAIN. SO, HE WENT GET A NEW BATTERY AND MORE FUSES AND HAD AN EXPERIENCED PERSON PUT NEW BATTERY AND FUSES IN. BUT IT STILL DID NOT START AND ALL FUSES BLEW OUT. I WAS TOLD BY A COWORKER THAT IT HAS TO BE SOMETHING WITH THE WIRING. CAN U PLEASE HELP.

Transmission problem. Its leaking a little bit, but its also not loosing any fluid. You can smell a little burnt smell coming from under the hood. And The car "slips" and Has trouble in the lower gear range (10-40 Mph) Is it just the Transmission in general? Or is there something else going on?

Car starts but 2nd cylinder not firing.

I have to pump the gas and hold the gas down to get it running, once it starts its fine. I have replaced the fuel injectors, plugs,coil pack, vacum hoses, plug wires, etc..

constant problem

The car will start rough and it idles even rougher with a clacking sound coming from the left side of the engine. As soon as I put it in gear it shuts off. If I immediately attempt to start it again it doesn't want to turn over without pumping the gas pedal.

It started this morning when I turned my wheel to turn. Now it keeps going on and off. Does it have to do with the all brake systems
