We drove to store parked it everything was fine came out of store and would not start

Tranny is going out slowly.

The fan on the passenger side spun a bearing causing the fans motor to burn out. The fan on the Driver side still moves freely but doesn't want to kick on. So I checked the fuse and it was blown, but when I replaced it with the New one after putting it all back together and reconnecting the battery, I started it up and the fuse blew again. So now what do I look for?

The problem seemed to have stopped for about two weeks after we changed the valve cover gaskets and plugs and wires. Then slowly started to occasionally have an "episode" till the other day went out to crank to go to work and it would never start up and run.

Both fans run as required. Only way to lower temp is to switch on heater to max and needle returns to normal but passengers pass out! Blocked Radiator? Mileage is 85,000. Thanks in advance.

nothing, all lights come on flashes and then engine light stays on, it don't want to sift out of second gear unless I rev it up.

When I stop it wants to die the
Air/blower stopped no Gage's work

do i need to replace the entire switch or just the flasher box?

Ive replaced thermostats and water pump. Flushed radiator out and now the car has a hard time starting and water is in the oil . What do I do?

I am replacing the heater core on my 1996 Ford Contour. Screws are stripped and cant get anything into the tight spot to remove them on the duct up under the dash board. What do I do?

It doesn't blow no air out what so ever..
