Do I have to take both lines off

What to look for 1st,2nd,3rd?The brake pedal has gone to the floor once,I checked the fluid level,It was low,I added fluid to recommended level.No brake system failure since, but both lights remain on ???.I used a CarMD,I think the code was PO 174,

How do you replace dash light bulbs on 1987 Mercury Cougar Anniversary edition? Left of side of dash lights work other 2 sections don't.

The car was parked and idling with a/c on and started emitting strong gas fumes. then it started miss firing until it died. When I started it up again it would barely idle. Now when I start it up it seems to be fine until I turn the a/c on ,then the engine starts emitting a loud humming noise and bogs down and tries to die. The engine light has not come on once since this has happened.

don't want to stop it wants to keep going any help on what that would be?

flushed radiator,changed thermostat,oil change changed air filter and car still overheating really bad cant even drive when i run a/c it totally overheats what would be my next step to take. thanx in advance

everytime i reset to check engine light it will come back on within 5 min here in california a car will not pass smog if the check eng. light is on. I have taken it to a tranny shop and they said if it was a selonoid b it would not be shifting bottom line they said there is nothing wrong with the transmission.

I have been searching and searching and can't figure out why this car won't crank. The IFSS is working as it should. The fuel pressure is at 39PSI when the key is in the on position. There is fuel coming from the Schrader valve. I replaced the fuel filter. Checked all the relays and they all work. I used multiple batteries and they are all pumping out enough juice throughout. Checked the spark plugs, they are not fouled out. They are all in proper sequence. The MAF was cleaned. We even tried using starter fluid into the intake, and it will crank, but not stay running. The fuel pump IS getting 12V.

The intake manifold had been replaced here recently, and since the replacement, it has not ran. Another thing is the fuel looks almost a greenish color when we changed out the filter, so we drained more to check it. It is a yellow/green color. I am thinking the gas is old, and has lost its octane, but I am trying to not have to drain the tank. I am, unfortunately, trying to take the shortcut for now. What is next?

Loose wire? Head? I'm being told it's the head, but reaching under P/S of dash and wiggling wires makes fan come back on. Head is $400+. What is it?

I have checked all 20AMP fusses and I have spark gas in fuel bridal. will not start.

into gear and all it did was slide up and down without engaging, what could this be?

I'm entering all of my expenses off a hand written sheet of 20 years. Your system is a great idea, but difficult to use. Can't seem to correct a wrong entry - like mileage. Can't enter new date without clicking every month going backwards. Extremely time consuming. Am I not using it correctly?

At first was told the crank seal was leaking. Later I found anti-freeze dripping under the car. I do have to add anti-freeze often. Now, maybe the water pump? Mileage is 227,900. I can't afford a new engine(or car). Will repairing afford me more mileage or is engine ready to die?
Approx. cost?

The problem is intermittent, and sometimes involves a clicking sound from what seems like the transmission, the check engine light is on, but solid, so it isn't a major problem, but it does seem that if it is driven any more like that, something is bound to break. I do not know the diagnostic trouble codes at this time.

I meant to ask how to locate sparkplugs and ignitioncoils on a 2004 thunderbird

Can't locate them

Car has 25k miles and I just replaced all spark plugs as engine light was on. Engine light is back on and my mechanic says 2 cylinders need replacement and the other 6 will likely need replacement soon.

It doesn't do it all the time. Sometimes it is just fine and then it will slip. Then it will slip again.

what is the fluid reservoir unit for just opposite side of powersteering reservoir.no idea what to re-fill with.

the reservoir indicates min level.no idea what to fill with

My car won't start.It is a fuel problem and we've narrowed it down to the crankshaft sensor.I want to test the sensor before replacing it.Can someone tell me how to go about it?

It will crank after about 20 minute if sitting

the oil is leaking mildly directly under engine block.
