SOURCE: 1995 mercury mystique starter replacement process?

At first, it looks like an impossible task, however if you start by removing the positive battery cable, then unplug mass air flow sensor, carefully remove air filter box and its components from the throttle body. from there you should be able to see the starter better and have more room to work and get it out. You can take the battery right out if you want a little more working space for your elbows. take the wires off the solenoid, sometimes the old studs of solenoid will break due to corrosion. remove the two 13mm bolts that hold the startersome models have one at the bottom also that you will need to access from the bottom side.

How do I get to and remove the thermostat in my 98 mystique


Locate the Thermostat
  • Find the hoses that leave your radiator.
  • Trace the top hose back to your engine.
  • Locate the thermostat housing attached at the end of that hose. Verify the location in your owner's manual, as some manufacturers house the thermostat at the bottom of the radiator rather than the top. This makes removal far more difficult.

Replace the Thermostat Locate the clamp that secures the thermostat to the radiator hose. Unscrew this clamp and gently remove it from the engine. You might see radiator fluid or coolant come out of the hose at this stage, in which case you can catch it in a drip pan and dispose of it later on. Unscrew the bolts that secure the thermostat to its housing. Wipe out the inside of the hose with a rag to ensure it is free of debris. If anything falls into your radiator, it can result in expensive repairs. Replace the gasket. Install the new engine thermostat. Make sure the power unit faces the engine. Replace the bolts to secure the thermostat housing to the radiator hose. Reconnect the hose and tighten the screws in the clamp

Where do you put water in a 1996 mercury mystique. I can't tell where the radiator is. I only see the coolant container


If you fill up the coolant container it will get into the radiator if it is low. If your radiator is completely empty remove the highest hose on the engine and fill through the top of the motor. Otherwise the coolant container is the only place to add coolant. Hope that helps!
