As soon as I'm done driving and I park it there's a 2"diameter of oil on the ground within a couple minutes.
All i want is to show me where the solenoid is located to check & of course the starter it self .

Don't know which to remove?
Replaced my side passenger mirror and turned the key to acc and turned a/c off and whole car went dead. No power. Wonder if i blew a fuse.
My speedometer would work sometimes and others not until the other day when I smelled rubber burning, only for a second then soon after it quit working entirely. Someone suggested it could be a fuse but I'm not sure if it's inside the car or under the hood. Thank you
Is a older car and my mom passed away and I ended up with it and trying to save it.i don't know much about the car myself
Can u put any radiator that fits on
I put a used radio in and it still doesn't work.
this is strange. the car will not turn over at all when battery is connected to the car. however when I disconnect the battery cables and connect them to jumper cables the car fires right up. battery is showing 12.6 amps and alternator is putting 14.5 into the battery when running. I have double checked the terminal connections many times and they are tight and no corrosion. had battery checked at auto parts store and its fine (only 4 months old) car will run fine after jumped with battery terminals not connected to battery. really confused with this.. any help would be great.
the car the starter kicks back or won't engage at all it takes about 10 tries to get it started. I just put in a new battery and it seems to be worse. Thanks Kurt
Timing belt is timed & rods match up w/red marks. Car has spark & turns over but won't start. At first car started but idle & ran very rough at low rpms but when going faster stopped shaking
I just found out about adjust mentioned I'll try that first
It's difficult to start all the time and it wants to die out every single time I stop. I have already replaced coil and O2 sensor what else can it be
Car chugging at startup, acceleration and stalling at stops.,
I have changed the bulbs and the fuse and that didn't work

Put spark plugs and fuel filter still will not start cranks but does not start don't know what is wrong. Help .
Car won't start can u help me please.
My shop says Ford no longer makes this part, and cant find a check engine assembly anywhere. Where can I find one?Cant pass inspection without fixing! My car has only 80K miles!
My tail light/dash fuse blew out and also melted the insulation on the wire from the back of the fuse box out. I need to know what it will cost and/or what it is.
When car is turned off then i try to restart it wont start. I have a 3 month old battery un it.
If my car sits over night I will attempt to start but it takes sometimes 3 tries so during the day if it sits for more than an hour it does the same.
Sometimes it idles out of control I have to turn off. Sometimes it will stop doing it sometimes it is worse. No one can figure it out. To me it seems like the gas pedal sticks. But was told it is not it.
Was driving down road and just died. Cranked over and started. Dove 1 mile and died. Bought new battery started, got it home. Replaced fuel pump, checked fuses, new plugs and wires and fuel shut off switch. New serpentine belt few months ago. Is there a relay somewhere I didn't check? How do I check power to fuel pump? Any suggestions would be helpful, thanks.
BTN shows parasitic draw, what is it and what does it power
