Question about 1985 Mercury Grand Marquis

2 Answers

My mother lives in Montana and I live in Southern Wyoming and she described a problem with her '85 Grand Marquis that she turned into a parking lot and heard a grinding coming from the area of the radio (behind it). She shut down the AC and tried starting it again and the grinding was there still. I am thinking it is either a spun bearing or maybe something in the transmission.

I want to replace the original carb on my 75 MGB with a weber, should I use a water, manual or electric choke weber carb ??


It depends on where you live really. Let's say you live in Texas, the fall and winter mornings can be bitterly chilly...but by noon be hot as heck. During the summer it is hot always. If it were me I'd use a manual choke in southern areas. or if I were in Michigan I'd probably use a electric choke. I actually say that because manual chokes in a place like Michigan will get stiff, rusty or freeze without proper maintenance and shielding. I lived in Alaska and Cheyenne Wyoming and noticed in Alaska that cable chokes and linkages would bind up in extreme temperatures. But when all else fails try the Weber Electric choke.

Do I need to let my 1993 Grand Marquis idle for 5 minutes before driving in the morning?


Based on the year of your car, would not be a bad idea to warm it up. After many years, engine components have worn and could show as poor engine performance. A good way to help is by adding engine oil additive when you perform your service. May be a good idea to add fuel additive once every other month. When fuel tank less then half tank, add additive and fill tank. This will help mix better.

No power to starter car will not start but battery full charge and everthing else works


You should test the starter solenoid by putting the transmission in neutral or park with the hand brake applied, inserting the key and turning it to the run position, then cross the terminals of the starter solenoid using a screwdriver or something similar and taking the necessary precautions due to working with a part which is electrically live.
Good luck!

I have a 1997 Mercury Grand Marquis. The hotwater


Check your antifreeze with a antifreeze checker to make sure it is at the right temp depending on where you live and how cold it gets there. If you have too much antifreeze the engine temp will not come up to over 200 and also replace your thermostat, making sure to realize they make them in different temp settings. Talk to people and make sure the thermostat you install is the right one for your climate where you live. Sounds to me as though your temp never comes up to what it should be. Also it could be the heater core.
