Question about 1996 Mercury Mystique
No its not the water pump. It sounds like you cooling fans are not coming on. Quick way to check this is to open your hood and turn on your a/c, the fans should turn on with in 20 seconds!!! If they don't you need a fan relay or a new fan hook a jumper wire to the fan if it comes on your good!!!!!!! And need a relay

Check for vacuum leaks.You can spray starting fluid around all parts of the intake.Observe idle as you do.If there is a leak the engine rpm will race higher.Also listen for hissing noise.Is the check engine light on?..If so what codes are stored..Good Luck!!!

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.
