    Console shifter? Do you have to press a little button to make it go into other gears in certain situations? Or does it go easily into the "reverse position", but the car won''t move when you give it gas?

    First thing to check is the transmission fluid level. If you don't know how to do that, contact a buddy. If topping off the transmission fluid does not solve the problem, then there is probably something more serious that is wrong.

    Let's check the transmission fluid level first before we jump to any conclusions regarding transmission replacement.

    Mine was doing something similar but also when shifting from park to drive. Problem was the previous changed tranny fluid and put in the wrong stuff. It was too thick/heavy and when cold the car wouldn\'t shift properly. Once warm it was fine. Once I had the filter changed and tranny fluid changed it was fine. Hope this was helpful.

How do I install the starter on a 1997 Murcury Mystique. I didn't take it foo but it needs to be installed.

Well Jerome,

That's a good name for a car in such a dilemma...
Mystique... 1997 (posted both 4 & 6 cylinder parts).

Since the lifting is the hard part... it would be better to take it to your cooperative PARTS HOUSE FOR TESTING..

you might GET to do everything at least twice (bad idea).

If you have the bolts.. the job gets a lot simpler.
Generally you have a Huge (POS +) wire that connects
from the battery DIRECTLY to the SOLENOID.

First thing:
You want to do is DISCONNECT the GROUND
at the BATTERY (NEGATIVE (-)) terminal.
(Always first off & last on... always... safety first).

Connect the "S" lead to the "S" terminal
(battery KEY switched ON only in START Position) ...

If you don't own (or want to buy) a manual
go to BBB Industries and register to use their
wiring DIAGRAMS & TSBs
(See very bottom: Technical Service Bulletins).

Heater fan on 1997 Mercury Mystique only works on "high" after replacing blown fuse.

You will need to replace your speed sensor switch located beside blower motor 2inch by 1inch single plug if you had a replacement in hand you could better identify it.
