I think you mean "idle".
If you have not already, remove the battery cables and clean the battery posts.
Let me know if it still does not crank.

You should be able to look that up on the auto parts stores' websites.
Just key in your year make model and engine size.
The stores usually have books that have the pictures too.

The fuse block is usually located under the drivers side dashboard...many require you remove the under dash panel to see it. You can go online to find an owners manual for your 84 LTD...if you plan on keeping this car, the manual is most helpful. Also the service manual should still be available through Ford, or probably son't need the service manual unless you are exposed to many repairs. Hope this helps.

I had one do the same thing same year and everything ended up being the engine computer but first test the ignition module you can take it off and have it tested at most of your local parts stores it is located on the distributor and you will need a special tool to remove it which can also be purchased through your local parts store for a few bucks just tell them you need a ford ignition module and they should know right what you need good luck hope this helps

For a while in the early days of pollution control there used to be an air pump which forced air into the side of the catalytic converter in order to lower the percentage of bad stuff in the total output of the exhaust. Perhaps that is what you are looking at. Most were disconnected almost immediately but no later than the first replacement of the converter.

I likely have the pic you need. But first, what are you working on? You have a 84? 83? Crown? Did you put this motor in? What is it out of?

I'd be severely worried if you didn't have coolant in your engine!

I presume that you meant you are finding coolant in the oil or that there's lots of steam coming from the exhaust even after the engine has warmed up.

If so, then there is no temporary fix. Putting the job off will at best ruin the cylinder head and at worst completely wreck the engine, so basically the longer it's left, the higher the costs.

There is only one fix and it's a full head gasket replacement and top end overhaul. If you have been filling the cooling system with water only and there is no antifreeze/corrosion preventer in the coolant then the engine block may already be ruined, but I've rarely encountered that situation except when working on engines which have had years of abuse and poor servicing.

I would start by checking the oil, if the oil is milky on the dipstick it most likely has a blown head gasket. Then make sure the exhaust is normal. Does it smell bitter sweet or is it a white cloud? if it does it is a head gasket issue.

Heater not working could be thermostat or plugged heater core. I would place my money on the thermostat if the rest of it checks out.

Keep your head about you and you might be able to get this car cheap over a simple $8 part.

What do you need to adjust? What is the symptom?
If you need to adjust the idle, there is an idler screw that has a tension spring on it so it will stay in place. Tighten it clockwise to increase the idle RPM and counter-clockwise to lower the idleing RPM.
Treat the linkage arms with carburator cleaning spray (AutoZone $4).
