Hey thanks for answering my previous question so quick. I have a little more info for you to work with. Here's the thing... someone changed the terminals to top post... The car sat for about 6 months, and the battery ended up dying so I had to find a battery with reversed terminals, thank you Autozone, but im worried maybe I ended up with the wrong battery??? I never really thought to just buy new side post terminals and put those back on the car, and get the correct battery. The one we got was the exact same size as the one that came out of the car though. As soon as it was installed, the car started up fine everytime, after 2 months I was still getting power, but it stopped starting. Like I said before, every once in a while it would randomly start, but most of the time, nothing, not even a click. The new starter was installed, and im getting that click, and still no start... It was my first time installing a starter, could i have put it in wrong? It seemed like a pretty simple procedure to me...

Re: pain in the *** starting problem
Was this starter from a discound retail parts store? well most times those cheap starters are no rebuilt very well you get what you pay for, Try this when it won't start reach and hit the starter with whatever you can a good sharp hit not too hard if it starts after you tap on it I have always had it be the starter the small wire goes on the "S" terminal and the big battery wire goes on the stud on the solonoid any other fuse link wires with the same size eyelet should also go on the same stud.

I had a 01 ss1 it was the shift lever. While I had the key in the crank position I wiggled the shift lever at the same time. Try neutral position too. These are neat little cars but when these stupid pain in the a.. problems come look out.
Good luck and thanks for your question and I hope my suggestions help. burdfrenzy

Replacing the gas lines can be a pain, but you can do it. The biggest problem is that if you do it wrong, it can be very dangerous. Some parts stores can sell you the entire set of lines pre-bent, and ready to go in. When you start taking the lines you, more than likely you will run into rusted parts. And Ford's brillliant quick disconnect (sarcasm intended) lines are notorious for not quickly disconnecting, and in fact giving a lot of trouble. You will need to make sure that all connections are sealed properly, and that the lines are bolted to the frame where needed. If you can not find pre-bent lines, you will have to bend them yourself, which is not fun. So to answer your question, yes one could do this, but it will be a pain. Especially if you dont have a nice shop. I had to run gas lines in a shop with a dirt floor in the middle of February, with no heat; not cool.
hello grizz_dipper: My name is Roger and I will answer for you. You will find the TFI (module) located on the distributor. Will be held on by two screws. If you are replacing this do to a spark problem I would suggest you replace the stator in the distributor also. The stator can short out the module. Also the module can short out the stator.
Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer you received. This way i know it was helpful. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger
jeryy thats a search operation sounds like broken wire or bad connection within the harness check on both ends then the rest of the wire till you find it sorry wish it was a little easier than that if you have ohm meter you can take connector loose and chack each wire for continuity on the circuit thats a little easier either way pain in **** job good luck charlie
