It is not the solenoid, but the starter bushings or spring is wearing out

If the old solenoid had a bad short it may have put your new starter out of commission. Have the starter tested-it should still have warranty for repllacement.

your car is the easiest starter problem car in the world to work on. That's the 4 cyl, right?

the solenoid is mounted right on top of the starter, Whack it a few times with a rubber mallet. Check the wiring harness connections.

I have a 1981 lincoln mark VI 5.0 engine i just


The positive battery cable goes from the battery to one side of solenoid.(big nut). The cable that goes to the starter connects to the other side of solenoid.(big nut). Sticking out the front of the solenoid there is 1 or 2 smaller terminals. There should be a single wire (approx. 14ga or 16ga) that breaks out of the harness near the solenoid that has a black "L" shaped "push" on connector on it. Push that connector onto the small terminal on the solenoid marked "S". Hope this helps. Good luck.
