Where is the heater core located in a 1996 Grand Marquis with a 4.5 liter engine? Is it difficult to change or labor intensive?

Above the passenger's feet inside the dashboard. they are a pain in the *** to replace. have it done at a shop where they specialize in car heating and A/C systems. if you pull a dozen dashboards out every month you get good at it and know any short cuts.

An orange light O/D off came on today on the dashboard around the stering wheel. Is this a problem and can I drive it

OD is toggled on and off - usually with a switch near/on the shifter.

It will not hurt to drive - but you will have no passing gear. (overdrive)

Overdrive light is flashing on my 1996 Mercury Grand Marquis

That usually means the transmission is in "LIMP" mode... Just to get you home or to a Service Center of your choice (one that does transmissions).... When it O/D blinks the car will drive sluggish... it stays in second gear and does not shift.... just so you can LIMP somewhere...... a good price to rebuild this transmission is about 1500 dollars.... Good Luck

Theres a button on the automatic stick what is it

That may be your overdrive button, try cruising at a steady safe speed and depress the button, you will feel a shifting motion on transmission and OD light may come ON on dashboard, this shifts your tranny to a lower gear when more power is needed without pressing gas pedal so hard that passing gear kicks in.

ABS lights on dashboard in Grand marquis 1996 car after maintenance of power steering circuit( oil leakage) by technician .I saw the right sided sensor not tightly assembled & slightly loose.If it is...

Yes, it should plug into the fixture. If not it may be broken where it should plug in. The ABS should correct itself after to reattach the part. You may have to disconnect the battery for 10 minutes if it does not correct itself after you work on it.
