Remove the positive and neg battery connections at the battery , ( not knowing what size motor your car has, ) fords have either a 2 or 3 bolt starter,, Located under the motor ( if you can't locate it, follow the positive battery cable down, It leads right to it ,, un-bolt the cable connections to it,, and then remove the bolts that hold the starter in place,, reverse this procedure to put the new one back in, you can look at this video to see how,, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pYQRd9BQSvw

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

SOURCE: Overdrive light is flashing on my 1996 Mercury

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

1996 Mercury Grand Marquis. Wont turn over, flywheel wouldnt turn UNTIL I rotated it backwards then it would spin forward until it stopped at the same point everytime. When the starter engages it tries to...


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.

Where is the starter located on a 1996 mercury grand marquis?


It should be located on the same side as your battery. Follow the positive wire from the battery and it should run to the starter. Hope this helped and good luck.

Mercury grand marquis


it is on the fender near the battery and is also referred to as the starter solenoid (if you follow the large wire from the positive terminal of the battery at the other end will be your relay/solenoid)
hope this helps!
