SOURCE: need to change starter
Should be under the engine on the passenger side of the engine right next to the transmission. It is about the size of large size juice can, is normally black with a smaller rounded thing with wires attatched called the soinoid. Most ford soiniods have an unplug plastic connection. You need to unhook all wires, and I think this starter has two bolts while a few have 3. Dont know which engine you have, so I am just giving you the general information. You will need tools like sockets, socket extension, rachet, a hand wrench set will also maybe come in handy as well as a couple of screwdrivers like at least one of each. Normally you will need to jack up and block the car up and put on jackstand as well as setting the brake, putting in park, and blocking all wheels also. You can look on the autozone website in the repair section to help, and you can also buy a complete starter from the parts house which will tell you the bolt locations, what it looks like, etc. hope this helps you, rick

That usually means the transmission is in "LIMP" mode... Just to get you home or to a Service Center of your choice (one that does transmissions).... When it O/D blinks the car will drive sluggish... it stays in second gear and does not shift.... just so you can LIMP somewhere...... a good price to rebuild this transmission is about 1500 dollars.... Good Luck

please go to the web site at link for fully illustrated instructions for replacing the starter, it is a very tough job on the ground, on a hoist it is fairly easy. This link applies to Grand M. and Crown Vic 1993 and up. here is the link.
