Hey Willy..The maxi fuse is located under the coil pack. Remove the four screws (9/32" socket) and look about 8" below where the coil pack was sitting. You may have to remove one of the spark plug wires to be able to move the coil pack out of the way. The maxi fuse looks like a box about one inch wide and four inches long with a red battery type wire coming out of each end. With a multimeter set on continuity check for continuity on each end of the "box" by touching both wire ends with the probes. If there is continuity the fuse is good if there is no continuity then your altenator may be shot. Go to a parts dealer or equivilant and have your altenator tested before you try to remove/replace it. Hope this helps..WF
The headlights and fog lights were burnt out. The battery was also boiling rapidly like a kettle...Hmmm i think the regulator is shot. I had to remove the altenator.(you can tell the engineers never tried to change one) What a terrible chore to remove the altenator, and find the maxi fuse...OMG if id only known Id bought a CHEVY .
If this car has the 2.5 24 dohc motor..Good Luck...Im not trying to be mean but there is a major task to remove this altenator from the car. The engineers at Ford thought of everything..except where do they put the altenator. Oh well we'll put it underneath the car, we wont have to fix it..ha ha.. Before you try to remove the Alt. Check the MAXI FUSE which is inline on the altenator wire to the battery. This fuse is located under the coil pak. Remove the 4 screws and lift the coil pack off. Look down the firewall about 8 " below the coils and there is a black box with red wires coming from opposite ends. One is from altenator, other is from battery. Inside the box is the fuse. Check continuity of the wires on each end the box. If there is continuity the fuse is ok and altenator is shot, if no continuity , the fuse is no good and you may not have to remove the altenator. ( but fuse blew for reason). If you need more info post again.
It's a valve not a sensor.
Where? it depends what engine do you have 4 cyl 6 cyl?
How do you know the EGR valve could be bad? check engine light on? OBD code? diagnostic made?
Help us to help you please provide more information
Hope it will help
If your car is a 2.5l v6 duratech Then the altenator can be bought from dealer, or other supplier. Tips to change the alt can be found in the pages of this site under 1998 contour altenator. The original Motocraft altenators were built by Visteon Part #N7775 (AO7775)This is a 130 amp altenator. Have the diagnostic done in car before you change it. Also check the maxifuse which is located under the coil pack at the back of the engine. The removal is time consuming, but you will save money big time.
the other guys i right, how ever it is not that simple....
the dog bone is the funny looking metal and rubber mount on the top center of the motor, it attaches to the frame in the front near the hood latch. you have to have the car on a front incline for the motor to tilt, or have some one push the back of the car forward so the engine will tilt forward. you should then beable to slide the bolt out.
