Question about Mercury Grand Marquis

1989 Mercury Grand Marquis: I had done the lifter repair about one month ago, after which there were no problems starting the car. Check engine light was not coming on at that time. Only in the last two weeks has it gotten worse.

Have you checked the battery voltage and had a tune up? I think it is an electrical problem. Check spark plug wires for damage and check plugs as well.

I've also seen this problem if the starter is sticking due to worn contactors, leaving it engaged when the car has already started.
Good Luck

    New plugs and wires. Starter is not sticking. Battery may be a problem. There are other issues as well. I have other posts about this vehicle.

Check the wiring in the steering column, something is almost disconnected. Indicating a short is near. Check the Ignition switch. Usually the problem - connections. You need a Lock smith that will

the only real way to confirm this is to have the fuel pressure checked out using a fuel pressure could also be a convertor plugging up in which case you can check the exhaust backpressure tested to see if it is.another way is to hit the convertor to see if you hear a rattle inside,if so the convertor material is breaking up and causing the exhaust to be plugged.some of the material could have travelled down the exhaust and is causing a problem.

I have a 98 Mercury Grand Marquis. Won't start

Check in the trunk and push the button on the Inertia switch. It should be on the drivers side of the trunk.

If this does not help, get a fuel filter and change it. If you can possibly get a fuel sample from the disconnected gas lines do it.

The new 10% gasohol will separate if it stands a few months. You may need to add fresh gas with a drying chemical like "Heet".
