How do I install the starter on a 1997 Murcury Mystique. I didn't take it foo but it needs to be installed.

Well Jerome,

That's a good name for a car in such a dilemma...
Mystique... 1997 (posted both 4 & 6 cylinder parts).

Since the lifting is the hard part... it would be better to take it to your cooperative PARTS HOUSE FOR TESTING..

you might GET to do everything at least twice (bad idea).

If you have the bolts.. the job gets a lot simpler.
Generally you have a Huge (POS +) wire that connects
from the battery DIRECTLY to the SOLENOID.

First thing:
You want to do is DISCONNECT the GROUND
at the BATTERY (NEGATIVE (-)) terminal.
(Always first off & last on... always... safety first).

Connect the "S" lead to the "S" terminal
(battery KEY switched ON only in START Position) ...

If you don't own (or want to buy) a manual
go to BBB Industries and register to use their
wiring DIAGRAMS & TSBs
(See very bottom: Technical Service Bulletins).

1998 mercury mystique LS battery light on , battery only 1 yr. old. ? Is it my alternator ?

If all the connections are clean and tight at the battery it is likely. The alternator should put out about 14.2 volts when the engine is at a fast idle (about 1500 RPMs). Auto parts stores will test your alternator for free.

Battery is drained by an internal short even with the key turned off on a 98 Mercury Mystique. No fuses are blown. With the battery fully charged it takes about 30 hours to drain the battery. Can a small...

Yes, it is very possible that a small internal short in the starter or alternator can cause this. Sometimes the starter wires can lightly touch and cause it to lose a charge. There are a number of things that can short and cause a battery to die over an extended period time. You should probably consult a specialist because it can be difficult to track down.

I have a 98 mercury mystique v6, When I try to start,

just a stab in the dark here. maybe starter drive bad, or starter sellinoid, or the worst case teeth gone on one section of flywheel. i would say its either starter drive or starter sellinoid. either case starter has to be removed. hope this helps. OLD SCHOOL.

My 1997 Mercury Mystique dies frequently when stopping at intersections or slowing down to make turns. If sitting still and trying to idle the motor surges and will finally die. Driving without any stop...

I have a 97 too, got it used and have had it for 6 years. Mine has over 120,000 miles on it. transmission has been replaced, now the alternator just went out. My car did this "cugging" and trying to stall for the longest time before the alternator went.
You should check all the hoses for sludge build up (especially if you let the gas get below 1/4 tank), then check the battery and altanator. These seemed to be the major problem with the car. Although now the electrical system in the car is going.
To make alternator repairs at a shop is just under $400.00 or you can do it yourself for parts and about 30mins of work for $170.00.
You can have the battery and alternator checked at Advanced auto parts or Discount auto parts for free.

Hope this helps! Other than that save your money and get out of that car!
