Wire is measured in gauge. Check both terminal conectoins(ends) on both wires for tightness and corrosion.

Radio going off and on..air conditioner going off and on..gauges flickering and won't start

It could be a faulty alternator. This would cause a battery drain since the alternator would not be recharging the battery and supplying operating voltage to the vehicle. Once the battery dropped to about 8 volts then the gauges, A/C, radio and other electronics would start acting crazy. Eventually the car would have shut down, but since you stopped at the post office, that didn't happen. With the battery being so low in charge, that would not allow the car to restart, as there would not be enough current to engage the starter properly. Check the battery voltage. If it seems ok (12-13 volts), try checking it again with someone trying to start the car. A normal battery will see some voltage drop, but a drained one will fall to almost zero with a starter load. Since you have gauges and not warning lights, a discharging battery may have gone unnoticed. If you determine the alternator is bad, be sure to have the battery charged, or if necessary, replaced before using the new alternator. A low battery can cause a new alternator to fail and most alternator warranties will not cover this type of failure.

There is a 12mm wire or gauge on battery that is causing my mountaineer not to start. how can i find it with my eyes and where is it?

who sed there is any kinda wire on the battery? if u can't see it , it ain't there?! try this! take all the extra stuff off the key ring, so that u r only holding the key and the keyfob.[keyfob= KLICKER] now start the car? if there is still a no-start condition, then reprogram the key/and fob.PROCEDURE: insert key with fob only. switch the key off/on 8 times. when u r on the 8th time in the ON POSITION, hold down any button the keyfob and hold down for a count of 30. then turn off; take out of key slot. then put back-in and see if this will start the car. it worked for my 2002 explorer!. lol.

Stripped 12mm isuzu bolt hole

You already answered your question partially. The thread size is 12mm. You can a helicoil kit at most parts stores. Buy the kit for a 12 mm and it will have all the necessary items you need to complete the install. The kits are usually pretty inexpensive. I know that NAPA sells these kits over the counter in many different sizes.

Want to replace plugs and ignition wires on a 2004,V-6, 2.7l Tiberon

The air handler you describe is called the 'surge tank' (or I perfer to call it the intake manifold). This manifold must be removed to access the 'rear bank' of plugs & wires on the 2.7 lit V6. There are three or four 12 mm bolts on the rear side of this tank (you'll have to feel for them) and the others are directly under your nose up front down the center of the engine (two long 12mm, three short 12mm and two 12mm nuts. You will want to purchase a new gasket for this manifold (recommended because reused gaskets have been know to leak - rare - but happens). When you put it back together, start all the bolts/nuts finger loose first, do not tighten the rear bolts until after you have torqued the main center-line manifold bolts first ( I believe the torque is 14 to 17 ft lbs) If you don't do these first, you could crack/damage the manifold.
