Question about Mercury Cars & Trucks
The first thing to do is test the battery, if that is ok take a look at the starter motor which had to be removed when the transmission work was done, the starter wiring and battery cable to it may not have been hooked up correctly or it has a loose connection, but check the battery first.

Have a load test done on the battery. If it checks out good, take a voltmeter to the battery and have an assistant rotate the engine. If you see more than a 2 volt drop when the car is being started, the starter is heading south.

SOURCE: cant get spare tire off
The metal sleeve on the end of the cable,you turn it sideways and push it thru the hole in the wheel. If it is stuck to the wheel just pick up on the wheel then tap the sleeve with a hammer.

Set the alarm and sit still in the veicle. Just before the alarm goes off i would expect the door ajar light to come on with the alarm. It sounds like a faulty switch making the car think somebody is breaking in.

The best way to change it is to flush it out You can do it yourself, but I do not recommend. A shop that is good like a Monro or Firestone usually charges about 100 bucks to flush and that includes the fluid. If you do it yourself, you will save about 60 dollars, but you risk damage to your radiator.
you will need a hose and an adapter. you back out the lower, or upper cooler line for your trans, whichever is the easiest to get to, (Some trucks have an auxiliary engine oil cooler, but make sure you are flushing the trans lines) put the adapter into the rad where you removed the line, and put a hose from each one down into a bucket. Have about 14 qt's of ford trans fluid ready. Put the funnel into the trans dip stick, and start the engine. pour the qts into the dipstick tube while the old fluid is pumped into the bucket. When you have about two gallons pumped into the bucket shut the engine off and reattach the line into the radiator. start up the engine and check your level. Fill with additional fluid if needed.
note: some say you should drop the pan. two things, you only change half the fluid when you do it that way, and second if you need to change the filter because it is clogged, it is too late for the transmission. The filter is only there to protect the valve body, not keep the fluid clean.
Hope this helps

remove the oil pan. remove the oil pick - up tube-to -main bearing cap nut. remove the oil pump pick-up tube mounting bolts. remove the oil pump mounting bolts and lower th eoil pump assembly. If the pump is faulty, or you suspect that it's faulty, install a new one- do not attempt to repair the orginal. The oil pump hex driveshaft will come out with the pump . Examine the ends for wear,"Caution": If this shaft breaks, serious engine damage can result. If it looks worn, replace it.
