Remove shroud to check functions

Brand-new 450, the resistance adjustment doesn't WORK. Can't find instructions anywhere to remove the shroud so that I can at least LOOK at stuff... looks like you need a metric bolt-like puller to get the inner shroud out??? I can't find an in-depth manual anywhere that shows how to do this!!!

Radiator removal instructions

Remove the fan and shroud. Put a large (!) drain pan under the radiator and drain it - if you're lucky it'll have a drain petcock near the lower radiator hose. Unscrew the radiator hose clamps and disconnect the upper & lower radiator hoses. Disconnect the transmission cooler lines if they also go into the radiator (some do, some don't)... you'll want a second, small, drain pan to catch the transmission fluid.

Now unbolt the clamps that hold the radiator to the radiator support plate (across the front of the car). Lift the radiator straight up, being sure not to lose the rubber mount isolator pads. Remove it from the car.

Replacement is pretty much the reverse of disassembly - put the new radiator in place CAREFULLY so you don't damage it, put the mounting clamps back on, reconnect the transmission cooler lines and radiator hoses, check the petcock (if the new radiator has one) to be sure it's closed snugly, reattach the fan and shroud.

Now refill the cooling sytem with all NEW antifreeze/coolant and water mix, about 50/50. DO NOT reuse the old antifreeze. Take close note of exactly what brand and type of antifreeze you used, and never NEVER mix any other brand/type of antifreeze with it, only exactly the same brand/type.

After refilling the cooling system, start the car & check the transmission fluid. Top off if necessary.

The pedals have no resistance and drop to the floor...what do I do?

Possible low battery or RPM sensor out of alignment
Shroud removal 1. Remove the 4 screws on the inside front of the shroud and lift the shroud off the frame. 2. Remove the Shroud by unscrewing the 6 screws on each side of the shrouds. 3. Be careful not to pull on any of the cables as you remove the shroud.
Low Battery: Locate battery use multi meter to check for full of 6v DC if under 5.9v DC and does not charge then replace battery.
The RPM sensor and alternator adjustments are accessible from the right side. The gap on the RPM sensor should be approx. 1 credit card. If this does not correct the problem then the sensor will need to be replaced

How do i replace the ignition switch in my 94 couger

Removal & Installation
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Remove the upper steering column shroud by removing the self-tapping screws.
  2. Unfasten the four bolts retaining the lower steering column shroud, then remove the shroud.
  3. Remove the lock screw, and detach the ignition switch electrical connector.
  4. Rotate the ignition switch lock cylinder to the RUN position.
  5. Remove the two screws retaining the ignition switch, and disengage the ignition switch from the actuator.
To install:

NOTE A new replacement switch will be set in the RUN position as received.

  1. Adjust the ignition switch by sliding the carrier to the ignition switch run position.
  2. Check to make sure the ignition switch lock cylinder is in the RUN position. The RUN position is achieved by rotating the ignition switch lock approximately 90 degrees from the LOCK position.
  3. Install the ignition switch assembly into the column actuator hole. It may be necessary to move the ignition switch slightly back and forth to align the ignition switch mounting holes with the lock cylinder housing threaded holes.
  4. Install the retaining screws and tighten to 53–71 inch lbs. (6–8 Nm).
  5. Attach the electrical connector to the ignition switch. Tighten the lock screw to 7–11.5 inch lbs. (0.8–1.3 Nm).
  6. Connect the negative battery cable. Check the ignition switch for proper function, including the START and ACC positions. Also, make sure the column is in the LOCK position.

First of all before anything else, disconnect the ground battery cable. Remove column shroud by loosening the screw on the underside, selecting position "1" for automatics and manual 3 speeds, then spreading shroud open and withdrawing out of instrument panel opening by pulling up and away from the column.

If the ignition switch is out of adjustment, that will keep it from working properly. It operates by a rod through the lock actuator rack and pinion which is driven by the key cylinder. To readjust the switch, first disconnect the ignition switch connector by carefully spreading apart the locking fingers and pulling the plug apart. Now rotate the key back and forth until you can insert a 5/64 drill bit, or something equivalent, through the locking pin hole as far as possible. The locking pin hole is located on the right of the switch next to the steering column tube. Next loosen the two ignition switch mounting nuts, turn the ignition to LOCK (feel for detent), and remove the key. Now move the switch up and down along the column to locate the mid-point of the rod lash and then re-tighten the mounting nuts, making sure to tighten top nut first to minimize any rod binding. Now remove the drill bit and reconnect the electrical connector.

If you need to replace the switch, first remove the column support bracket and lower the column. Disconnect the plug, remove the two nuts, lift the switch up vertically to disengage the actuator rod from the switch, and remove.
When you install the new switch, both the lock cylinder and the ignition switch must be in the LOCK position for correct adjustment. Turn the lock cylinder to LOCK and remove the key. The new switch will already be pinned in the Lock position with a metal shipping pin. Now install the new switch by first engaging the actuator rod to the switch, and then positioning the switch on the column and installing the nuts, but only finger tight! Move the switch up and down along the column, and when you locate the mid-point of rod lash, tighten the nuts, top nut first. Remove the lock pin, reconnect the battery ground cable, and check to see that it starts properly in Park and Neutral, and will not start in Drive or Reverse. Raise the steering column back up into position, and put bracket back on. Reinstall the shroud by spreading it around the column and through the instrument panel opening, making sure that the pin on the shroud is aligned with the upper hole on the column before installing the shroud screw.

I hope this works for you. Although I've done this before, these instructions are from the Ford Truck Shop Manual, and a Haynes Repair Manual. Good Luck!!!
