    better check valve timing. If the timing chain has slipped, you don't want it to start...

It sounds like you have lost a tooth from the edge of the fly wheel. Remove the starter motor and check its pinion drive gear for integrity. Whilst the motor is off ease the flywheel round by using a large screw driver to lever it one tooth at a time. If all teeth are intact and pinion gear is OK then it could be either the contact brushes or the armature contact area in the starter motor that have become worn. If brushes just replace them. If armature - replace the motor.

I have a 97 marquis and the headlights wont turn off whether the car is on or off and its killing my battery


Until you get as fix, unhook one of the battery cables each time you
stop the car, and hook it up again when you are ready to go somewhere. Sounds like it might be a broken headlight switch.

Have a chirping sound on drivers side of car while driving, sounds like its coming from either front or rear tire area. its a 2000 mercury grand marquis.


front or rear? thats a big area to narrow it down to. I would suspect the universal joints to "chirp" it may make more noise backwards or forwards.

97 Merc Grand Marquis wont turn over after sitting for the winter. Battery is good. Ran great until sitting for 2 months.


The starter is probably just hung up, I would recommend that you gently tap on it with a rubber mallet, or the wooden end of a hammer.
