It goes into the other gears fine but like 30 mph , it has a problem shifting to next gear the RPM's get higher, so I let of the gas and it goes into gear. But later when it needs to downshift out of the gear, it goes in hard. What is wrong wgat do I need to do ?

I need to replace the water pump and I want yo know its location.

Car running

I can't find a video on ac installation. I bought the car and was told some one tryed to weld a compressed to it and messed up the ac mounts. I was thinking of trying to re tap the mounts to try and get one on. I'm not sure I can tho so if I can get help with putting a belt on it without a ac. I'd appreciate it. I've done it with other cars but this one is tricky.

Car sat for ten years. Replaced all fluids, tune up

It would only start in park when you giggled the shifter, and it sat for a month and now it wont click or do anything when you turn the key. I have charged the battery the car only has 108,000 miles on it.

Problem is consistent;I just drive the slow lane 'til the healing occurs...daily....for quite sometime now-couple months

someone please explain which wires go to each post...thank you

Can't get top bolt to line up correctly and start without crossthreading. Does the top bolt go in from the opposite direction? Please, say it does... If possible, text my phone at (970)-630-6393 as my internet reception out here really bites. I can get texts usually, but internet is very slow & patchy.

is there a fuse in the engine compartment that could be bad

1994 ford tempo water[ump instruction for removal. It looks like It may be best to get a price on it at a shop only because I may not have all the tools and they do. But, there's always the drawback that I may get the mechanic from hell. Lol.

Why won't it start?

can't get the front axle off

Even manual shifting does not help with the cars lack of speed.

How much does it cost to replace the transmission?
