I wrote while ago thanks for the help now my 1991 mercury capri is rattling I have been told it is the cover plate for cat. coverter how do i tighten it? Also clutch feels weak how to tighten?

Sometimes a stainless hose clamp cam stop the rattles, sometimes it takes a spot or 2 of welding.

If your Capri is not an XR2, then you have hydraulic clutch, no adjustment is possible. If it doesn't work right, the master or slave clutch cylinder may be going bad, time to replace them. good luck...Chris

1991 mercury capri turbo xr2: are engine rebuild parts available, e.g., new pistons, rods, cranks, etc..

Your car looks like a Ford Capri engineered in Australia from a Mazda 323. These are quite common in New Zealand and Australia . Unfortunately they came out at the same time as the MX5 and didn't sell well.
Do a search on Google images for Ford Capri to see if they are the same. If they are parts are readily available ex Mazda

New Battery Installation (Problems)

I would remove the battery and give it a good charge. New batterys require a low amp over night charge. A cars altenator isn't designed to charge a battery it's made to maintain the battery to it's fullest ability. The headlights opening and closing would indicate to me a low voltage, causing the relays for the headlights not to fully shut or open. Let me know if this solves your issue, if not we can trouble shoot farther. Thank you for using
