Can someone tell me how to change a starter on a 2006 ford fusion

For a 4 cylinder, take negative battery cable off, raise and safely support car, it's from underneath. There may be an underbody cover, 7 screws, then on the starter only two electrical connections, battery cable big nut (plastic cover aside first), and small wire nut, both connections on the starter solenoid. Then the starter mounting bolts, a bolt on top side, and a stud on the lower or bottom side, they kind of angled in, one on top, and the stud on the bottom. When those two loose, starter is free. Oh, yes, on the stud mount is a wire harness retainer, off that and set aside.

Reinstall in reverse. Torque: starter motor bolt and stud bolt-18 ft/lbs. battery cable nut -9 ft/lbs. small wire nut - 44inch/lbs. just snug. don't need a torque wrench on any of them, use your best judgement. 18 ft/lbs is pretty solid tight without agonizing it, 44 inch pounds is like 3 1/2 ft/lbs-use a tiny box end wrench or socket and just tight so the wire is not loose.

Have no users manual and i'm not sure how you would replace the light bulb on the brake light

Change the Rear Brake Lights
  • Open the trunk and twist the retaining wing nuts off the studs holding the carpeted trim cover in place on the back side of the tail lamps.
  • Pull the carpeted trim cover out of the way and pry the plastic caps out of the holes with the screwdriver tip.
  • Unbolt the nuts holding the tail-lamp assembly in place using the socket set.
  • Pull the tail lamp assembly away from the body of the Stratus. Grab the socket for the bulb in question and twist it counterclockwise to remove it. Pull the old bulb out by hand and insert the replacement bulb. Reinstall the socket in reverse of removal.
  • Push the tail lamp assembly back into position and tighten the nuts back down onto the retaining studs using the socket set. Pop the plastic caps back into the holes, pull the carpeted trim cover back into position and reinstall the plastic wing nuts. Close the trunk.

How do I replace the valve cover gaskets for a 1996 Ford Ranger w/ 3.0L Engine?

The valve covers installed on the 3.0L engine incorporate integral (built in) gaskets which should last the life of the vehicle. Replacement gaskets are available if required.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Disconnect the ignition wires from the spark plugs, but leave them attached to their wire looms.
  2. Remove the ignition wire separators from the rocker arm cover attaching bolt studs with the wires attached, then lay the wires out of the way.
  3. If the left hand cover is being removed, remove the throttle body assembly, the PCV valve and fuel injector harness stand-offs. If the right hand cover is being removed, remove the engine harness connectors, fuel injector harness stand-offs and air cleaner closure hose from the oil fill adapter.
  4. Using caution, slide a sharp thin blade knife between the cylinder head gasket surface and the valve cover gasket at the four RTV junctions. CUT ONLY THE RTV SEALER AND AVOID CUTTING THE INTEGRAL GASKET.
  5. Remove the integral gasket from the valve cover gasket channel. Note bolt/stud fasteners locations before removing gasket for correct installation. Clean gasket channel and remove any traces of RTV sealant.

To install:
  1. Align fastener holes, lay new gasket onto channel and install by hand. Install gasket to each fastener, seat fastener against cover and at the same time roll gasket around fastener collar. If installed correctly all fasteners will be secured by gasket and not fall out.
  2. Install valve cover to the engine, lightly oil all bolts and stud threads. Apply a bead of RTV sealant at the cylinder head to intake manifold rail step (two places per rail).
  3. Place the valve cover on the cylinder head and install attaching bolts and studs. Tighten the attaching bolts to specifications.

  1. Install all remaining components in reverse order of removal procedure. Connect the ignition wires to the spark plugs and reconnect the negative battery cable. Start the engine and run to normal operating temperature, then check for oil and vacuum leaks.

Where is the jack and tools for spare tire?

Jack Location
In the Durango, the scissor jack and tire changing tools
are stowed under the second row seat.
The jack is secured in place with a winged stud and a
fixed stud. It is very important to secure the jack tightly
in place by engaging the slot in the base to the fixed stud
under the middle seat. The winged stud inserts through
the eyelet in the end of the jack’s worm screw.

Rear tail lamps for the 2002 La Sabre has eight nuts that hold the cover in place ( one piece-all acroos the back of the car). Do not remove the nuts for the lock, the cover sits in place and is not secured to the lock. Use a 10 mm deep well socket. remove the nuts and lift the cover to replace the burned out bulb(s). The bulbs are #194 or #198 (very small bulbs), not the 3057. It is easy to locate the burned out bulbs by putting the car in reverse and shutting off the engine and then put the ignition key in the accessory mode. The lights will light unless they are burned out. Simply pull them out and replace with the new ones and put the cover back in place and secure the nuts.
