    ok i just tried a new battery fully charged and it did the same thing the soliniod clicked once not repeatedly so im gonna guess i have a loose wire from the solinoid to the starter or a bad sol. or bad starter but the starter worked fine before the old battery went dead eather way ill most likely have to crawl under the car to see about any loose wires right??

Generally it takes over 400 cca to turn over a V 8 engine . best thing to do would be charge the battery and then have it load tested at a parts store.

Try jump starting you car. If that works your battery is need of replacement. To verify jump start, take to any good parts store and have them test your charging system & load test your battery.

    Really doesn't matter, but I'd use another vehicle so you can get battery "in question" tested while in your car.

You need to attach a pressure gauge to the schrader valve and measure the fuel pressure with the key on and also while running. You need to see about 40 lbs in both cases.

Where is the starter located on a 1992 grand marquis?

Look for a sticker on the driver side door jam.

if your car was made up to 2/92 the starter is on the passenger side of the engine above the oil pan on side of engine block, two bolt's hold starter in place into the transmission housing.

if your car was made after 2/92 the starter is on the driver side also next to the engine block with three bolt's into the transmission housing.

Hope this was very helpful.
