When you are standing in front of your car look down between the engine and the rad on the drivers side and you will barely be able to see the top of the starter bolted to the bottom of the block on your 24 valve Duratek engine. Although it is hard to see from the top of the car it is very easy to change from under the car. Jack up the front of the car on the drivers side and support it with a jack stand. Remove the black splash shield attached to the bottom of the front bumper and the 2 small bolts holding the shield to the front wheel wells. Once this is removed the starter is in plain view and easy to get at. To remove the starter first disconnect the negative battery cable from the battery. At the starter you will find the red positive cable from the battery connected to the solenoid and another small wire connected to the solenoid. You will also find the battery ground cable attached to the top starter mounting stud with a nut. This ground cable is the hardest part of the starter removal. You will need 2 wrenches to get this off,1 to hold the stud from turning and another to remove the nut,but don't worry,if you can't remove the nut just break off the cable end and install a new one. Once you have removed all 3 wires mentioned all you have to do now is remove the top stud and the bottom bolt and gently pry the starter away from the block,it is held in place with 2 dowel pins. That's it,install the new starter and reattach all the cables and your ready to go. I hope this helps and good luck. Len

Remove the inoperative heater and install the new one. You just have to gain access to the side of the engine block where the heater is located. Might have to remove something that is blocking access to the heater like the starter or something else.

i would check the plug wires and the coils you check the plug wires for bad spots at night start the motor up and look at the plugs if you see a spark arch out the wire and to a peace of metal then the plug wires need to be replace.

1996 Ford Taurus LX wagon. 3.0L 24v Duratec. Stalled leaving red light then no power at all. Towed home. Starter tests passed at home by manually putting power from B+ to 's' clip on starter. Starter also...


I would look at the positive cable at the battery and at the starter. Pull the cabel off and a continuity test to see if the wire has a internal break if the wire gets even a pinhole it can build corrosion on the inside of the wire and when a current is put through it it seperates (from the resistance and arc from corrosion) causing the wire to seperate internaly.

Hope this will get you started!
