Where is the neutral saftey switch on a 1955 thunderbird 6 volt


Hello Jacqueline Iannuzzi,

On the floor end of the shift column
before it goes through the fire-wall.
(standing on your head)

Big CAUTION ... DISCONNECT THE Battery
lest you be driving around... upside down
(like I did... (no accidents... but that not in my hands)).

Hope this helps

88 thunderbird white smoke and water coming from tail pipe


Possibly a blown head gasket, letting coolant into the cylinders to be burned. White smoke is usually coolant burning. Have the engine's compression tested to verify.

I have a 2002 Ford Taurus and I had my heads and gaskets go bad replaced them seemed to be a pretty simple job but after the installation check engine light came on has rough idle, engine codes were bad...


This is most definatly a grounding issue. Re-Check all grounds. Even check the connections at the PCM. Check for a missing ground ******** the back of the heads. Did you unhook the battery before preforming the tear down? If not you may have fried the PCM.

1994 t-bird lx 3.8 car start for a sec. but stalls


Could be bad gas ( underground water seepage is more common in the winter ). You need to verify that your getting fuel to the rails and that the fuel is OK. Next, check your fuel regulator at the fuel rail. Sometimes when they go bad they will let too much fuel go past and the injectors will flood out. This happened to a Bronco I had. Check the fuel pressure at the rail. Sounds like fuel related, not spark.

Ford thunderbird wont start in Cold weather


change distributor cap first and see how it goes could have a crack in it.Failing which you need to test the ignition module when its cold as sometimes a component will break down and not work when its cold ,this is very much a hands on type job so if dist cap doesnt cure it call a mobile mechanic
