Question about 2002 Mercury Cougar

1 Answer

Starter replacement I was trying to estimate a starter replacement job, however according to alldata it pays 1.2 hrs. But if you look at service and repair step 2 is to remove lower intake manifold. Which calls for 3.0 hrs by its self. does anyone know if it has to come off or not?

There is the couple or ways you can get to the starter that doesnt require the manifold coming off just enough lift on the car so that you can get to the starter easily the starter should be accessible threw the wheel well with long socket extension with bendy bar extender to get to the bolts then the starter should drop down ive done 4 fords in my life and i did a 2002 cougar i didnt have to take off the manifold i just had to have car lifted high enough to get into area where bolts were then slide the starter out threw wheel well

I replaced head gasket on honda 3.0 engine now no compression and no start


bingo, hondas are all interference engines, (99%)
http://www.interferenceengines.com/honda.html

3.0L J30A1 V6 200 hp (150 kW)??????? this one?
SOHC V6

no compression on all cylinders????????? or just 1.
1: the valves were bent. at the belt snap?, (skipping 60k service !@)
2: you timed the cam wrong.
3 : The system uses the i-VTEC system to turn off one bank of cylinders under light loads
so maybe this feature is active? and you didnt check all cylinders for
compression? ???? try all 6 and post.
did you follow all steps in the FSM to do this job? y/n
or alldata.com ????

4: did you have the HLA valve lifters out. and not prime them? per FSM.
if you like this car, why not own a FSM. (or equiv)

never ever crank over any interference engine after any major work
(heads off, cam belt, change,or lost compression)
until:
1: you turn engine over by hand, sparks out.
2: then run a cyl. leak down test, first. on all 6
if not ,the 7 HP starter can in FACT bend valves.
that be Rule 1. (or $$$$$$$_)

'01 Trooper tranny replacement time


That transmission is a very difficult transmission to do because the whole transfer case has to be removed. I would estimate approximately 10-12 hrs of labor time.
