Question about 1986 Ford Thunderbird
Have 1986 thunderbird. You put the key in, turn it, it starts, let go of key and it stops.... sometimes if you let go really slow the engine will stay on.
Replace the ignition tumbler--i.e. get a new ignition set with new key. This will require removing the plastic trim around the steering column and removing the old ignition set. It's a good DIY project, but you should get a Haynes manual for 83-88 T-Bird/Cougar. Try going to a junk yard for the replacement part. Crown Vics, Cougars, Grand Marquis', Lincolns all have the same type of set for those years.
