Question about 1988 Ford Mustang
My grand son has a 1988 mustang we replaced the selenoid on the fender wheel replaced the starter loosened the belt tension the starter only clicks when trying to start eng and draws a lot of power from the battery. he says it would start with a push.
A very common problem with the fords of this era was the negative battery cable connection. The cable has a tendency to loosen up where it is attached to either the frame or engine blck. The other battery cable, the positive one (red), runs very close to the exhaust manifold and pipe down near the starter motor and will sometimes make contact, melt the insulation on the wire and short out. I would recommend examining and either tightening connections or replacing the battery cables.
