Their isnt one ,it handles 200 amps ,check the connections on the battery,and yes it does spark well also check the earth strap from engine to chassis in case you burnt it out.LESSON ONE always disconnect the battery before doing and work of this nature on the vehicle ,but we have all done it try it with a truck with 24v and two monster batteries

Engine won't turn over 1988 ford mustang 5.0 eng.


A very common problem with the fords of this era was the negative battery cable connection. The cable has a tendency to loosen up where it is attached to either the frame or engine blck. The other battery cable, the positive one (red), runs very close to the exhaust manifold and pipe down near the starter motor and will sometimes make contact, melt the insulation on the wire and short out. I would recommend examining and either tightening connections or replacing the battery cables.

1988 gmc sierra 1500 hestitates going from 45 to 50 and starts losing power.


couple things to check out.check the fuel pressure with a gauge it should 35lbs plus or minus 2.if its too low then replace pump,if its good then check fuel pump volume it should be about a pint in 10/15 seconds.if this is low replace pump.make sure you replace the fuel filter as well.the other thing to check is the exhaust for a restriction.you can do a back pressure test at the converter by removing the O2 sensor and install a backpressure gauge and starting and idling the motor,the pressure should be less than .2 and then increase the rpm to 2000/2500 it should be less than 2lbs.if its more then you more than likely have a plugged catalytic convertor,and need replacing.tap along the exhaust to see if you hear any rattling or dents(crushed) pipes.if you hear a rattle chances are the catalyst has come apart and will need to be removed from the exhaust when the converter is replaced.check for codes in the computer as not all codes will turn on the check engine light.you could have a worn out throttle position sensor(tps) it will have to be check with high quility volt meter

I WANT TO KNOW WHERE IS THE STARTER LOCATED SO I CAN REPLACE IT..


REMOVAL & INSTALLATION 2.0L SOHC Engine With Automatic Transaxle; 2.4L Engine
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable from the left strut tower. The ground cable is equipped with a insulator grommet which should be placed on the stud to prevent the negative battery cable from accidentally grounding.
  2. Remove the air cleaner resonator.
  3. Remove the 3 bolts attaching the Transmission Control Module (TCM). Do not disconnect the TCM wiring. Move the TCM to gain access to the upper starter mounting bolt.
  4. Remove the upper starter mounting bolt.
  5. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  6. Remove the positive battery cable nut and disconnect the cable from the starter.
  7. Disconnect the push-on solenoid connector.
  8. Remove the lower mounting bolt that attaches the starter to the transaxle.
  9. Remove the starter from the vehicle. Fig. 3: Starter motor wiring terminal connections — 2.0L SOHC engine with A/T; 2.4L engine 90902g12.gif
    To install:
  10. Install the starter onto the transaxle and the lower mounting bolt.
  11. Tighten the mounting bolts to 40 ft. lbs. (54 Nm). NOTE: Before reconnecting the wiring to the starter solenoid, be sure to clean the wiring of any dirt or corrosion.
  12. Reconnect the positive battery cable to the solenoid post and tighten the retaining nut to 90 inch lbs. (10 Nm).
  13. Reconnect the push-on solenoid connector.
  14. Lower the vehicle.
  15. Reinstall the upper attaching bolt and torque to 40 ft. lbs. (54 Nm).
  16. Reinstall the TCM to its original location and install the mounting screws.
  17. Reinstall the air cleaner resonator.
  18. Reconnect the negative battery cable.
2.5L (VIN N) Engine
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Most vehicles will require the removal of the front exhaust pipe. Use penetrating oil on the fasteners to ease removal.
  3. Disconnect the starter motor electrical connections.
  4. Remove the starter motor mounting bolts and remove the starter. Fig. 4: Exploded view of the starter motor mounting — 2.5L engine 90902g10.gif
    To install:
  5. Clean both surfaces of the starter motor flange and the rear plate. This is important since the starter grounds through its case and the transaxle flange to which it attached. Some remanufactured starters may have paint on these areas which should be cleaned off before installation. Install the starter motor onto the transaxle and secure with the retaining bolts. Tighten the bolts to 20–25 ft. lbs. (26–33 Nm).
  6. Connect the electrical harness connectors to the starter.
  7. Connect the negative battery cable and check the starter for proper operation.
2.5L (VIN H) Engine
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable from the left strut tower. The ground cable is equipped with an insulator grommet which should be placed on the stud to prevent the negative battery cable from accidentally grounding.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  3. Loosen, but do not remove, the exhaust pipe-to-manifold retaining nuts.
  4. Place a drain pan under the oil filter to prevent oil spillage, then remove the oil filter. For additional details, refer to Section 1. Fig. 5: Loosen the exhaust pipe-to-manifold retaining nuts to provide removal clearance for the starter 90902p01.jpg
    Fig. 6: Location of the positive battery cable nut (1) and the push-on solenoid connector (2) 90902p02.jpg
    Fig. 7: After removing the oil filter for access, unfasten the retaining nut and disconnect the positive battery cable 90902p03.jpg
    Fig. 8: Disengage the push-on starter solenoid connector 90902p04.jpg

  5. Remove the positive battery cable retaining nut and battery cable from the starter.
  6. Disconnect the push-on solenoid connector.
  7. Remove the 3 bolts that attach the starter unit to the transaxle.
  8. Pull the exhaust pipe down just enough to provide clearance for the starter motor. The exhaust pipe does not have to be separated from the pipe-to-manifold threaded studs.
  9. Remove the starter unit from the vehicle. Fig. 9: Remove the 3 starter motor-to-transaxle housing attaching bolts 90902p05.jpg
    Fig. 10: Pull the exhaust pipe down just enough to provide removal clearance for the starter 90902p06.jpg
    Fig. 11: Carefully remove the starter motor from the vehicle 90902p07.jpg
    To install:
  10. Install the starter unit onto the transaxle and install the 3 mounting bolts.
  11. Tighten the mounting bolts to 40 ft. lbs. (54 Nm). NOTE: Before reconnecting any wiring to the starter solenoid, clean the wire terminals of any dirt or corrosion.
  12. Reconnect the positive battery terminal and retaining nut to the starter solenoid post. Tighten the retaining nut to 90 inch lbs. (10 Nm).
  13. Reconnect the push-on solenoid connector.
  14. Reinstall the oil filter.
  15. Lower the vehicle.
  16. Reconnect the negative battery cable.
