No oil condition and did it overheat? When you shut it off,why did you shut it
off. What was the problem? If it's out of oil,the lifters go flat and the engine shakes and dies,maybe permanently. More info, please. don-ohio

SOURCE: 95 mustang gt headlight problem

Its your headlight switch... I have the same problem with my mustang.... After time goes on it wears on the copper connectors on the headlight switch and they will either get loose or they will bend and at times losing connections... I picked up the headlight switch from Auto Zone for $16.99... AND I believe that the sound you're hearing isn't coming form your engine but its coming from the headlight switch... Dont quote me on it but I am sure thats where its coming from... Due losing and gaining connection...

SOURCE: hood wont pop

Are you sure it has a cable fitted as mine opens from the front of the car with the key. to do this you swing the ford badge up insert the key, turn it one way to pop the hood then turn it the other way to release and lift it at the same time

SOURCE: Car wont start

I have to agree with duane_wine. Starter makes sense. Sometimes you can jump the starter by cracking the solenoid with something metal. This doesn't always work, but sometimes it'll knock some of the corrosion off the internal componets. Good luck. Love to hear what the issue ultimately is.

SOURCE: Change oil pump 99' Ford Taurus V6-3.0 Station Wagon

does your oil light come on because if your oil light comes on and the the car is cold there is no knocking but when the car warms up you hear the knocking its going to be your oil pump and the oil pump screen

Car wont start just replaced starter no idea whats wrong

Try another key, you can also jump the solenoid under the hood on the passenger side, big terminal to the little terminal. Keep your hands clear of moving parts. This test will determine if the starter is bad ( or wiring to starter ) or if your ignition switch or related components are defective.
