I just put a new fuel pump on and line is clear. Worked fine and then had to replace the starter. After replacing the starter it would not pump fuel again.
The secound axle popped out at a traffic light and i could not put it in park because the transmission was running. So worried about my trans being damaged. Had it towed there and they put a longer one in.My starter and ball joints went bad too.Please tell me if I will have more problems because of there wrong doing ?
Starter operates correctly most of the time. Once in a while all electrical works but no click, no start. 10 minutes later starts right up. what could cause this?
a mechanic said he couldnot align because the motor mount was broken
maintained and tuned-up.
Attempted too start car. Key turned toward start position but starter did nothing. Ingnition lock froze toward the start position. I do not know if the lock is in the run position. Lock does not turn, in any direction, and the key will not disengage from the lock. I read where all ford automobile ingnitions are serviced in the run position. I pulled the locked cylinder and replaced it with new FORD MOTORCRAFT lock and tumbler assembly (sw-2423). The new key and lock still will not turn and remains fixed as before. I read where the problem may be with the actuator rod? I removed all dash panels and the new ignition lock. I'm now at the point where it's necessary to unbolt the steering column to access the ignition switch and actuator. I'm concerned about reassembly of the steering column and its alignment - is there any danger that alignment issues may arise both with steering column and actuator?

My car would jump out of gear while driving and I could pull over put it in park shut the car off then restart and have no more problems. The last time that happened it was like the transmission got stuck in low gear and won't change out. I was told that it was possibly the computer shift module, what is that?
