    Determine if your problem is fuel or spark. You can check for spark by unplugging a plug wire and sticking a spare spark plug in it, then having a friend crank the engine. If there's spark, then we're looking at a fuel problem... one step at a time.

    what about the starter? has it been tested? do u have a 12 volt signal to the starter solenoid when you hold the key in the crank position?

Check the connections at the battery, make shure there is no corrosion,also check that the ground wire from the bat to the engine is in good. if you have an ohm meter check the wires themselves,should show no resistance, please rate my fix,check back if you need more help Ray

Purchased a reconditioned battery the battery indicator light comes on and fluid comes from under the caps on top of the battery what is this

Sounds like 2 problems.. 1. don't buy "rebuilt" batteries.. The fluid comning out implys that the battery is being overcharged by the alternator..(Or the battery is overfilled) couple of possibilities .. 1, the alternator has shorted out and is putting our really excessive voltage.. say like 20+ volts.. you can check this with a volt meter..(Don't have one?? they are real cheap at Harbor Freight Tools)) Should not be over 14.6 volts.. #2. The battery was "rebuilt" wrong and is only a 10volt battery instead of a 12 v battery in which case 14.6 v would be too many for it. I have not seen a "reconditioned/rebuilt" battery in years.. last one i saw was in southern Mexico about 20 years ago.

Alternator doesnt work

If all the connectors are good then just replace the alternator and have the battery tested, a defective battery will quickly destroy a new alternator.

Battery wont stay charged alternator replaced and starter 1994 ford thunderbird

Depending on the age of your battery you should probably have it load tested. A battery with a bad cell can get what we call a surface charge. This is only good for a few minutes and it dissipates indicating a bad cell in the battery. If you loose a cell you loose two volts and that is enough to not let your vehicle start. The average battery lasts about 4 years if it is a good one. You get what you pay for in batteries. Lower priced battery equals less service out of it over the long run. Extreme hot and cold weather wreak havoc on batteries that are a few years old.

I have a 1994 t bird with yhe 3.8 non supercharged motor i have test the alternator twice it passes each time but as soon as i put it on the car nothing happens it doesnt charge the battery now i have yet...

Fuse 11 powers the stator coil, which is needed for the alternator to charge. The 175 Amp maxi fuse is where the charge current runs thru to the battery. Let me know if you have more questions.

check battery cable for tightness and no corrosion.if all is well charge the battery or jump start it. while engine running check to see if the alternator is charging should be 13.5 to 14.5 volts while engine idling.turn off engine battery voltage should be 12.5. if drops to 11.0 to 10.0 volts.battery is weak.if car running the voltage should be 13.5 to 14.5 volts alternator is charging. if the voltage is 11.8 to 11.0 volts. alternator is not charging.

Battray has alot of acid on it.. so i clean it up, and when i try to start it, it wont turn over.. so we jumped it and it ran but eveytime i stoped or swicthed the gear it would act like it wanted to turn...

You might have a bad battery. Have the battery checked and the alternator.
The alternator should put out 14 to 15 volts. If there is an autozone near you, take it there, they will check them free of charge.

Car Starts but dies

Give the car a "Tune-up". Replace the spark-plugs, the spark-plug wires, and make sure the "Timing" is correct...OK
