Hello, i have been here once before and made some progress on the problem. Please keep in mind that i am working on my uncles car and so i am not fully sure of what has been done or how it runs etc. Car is a 1995 taurus v6.
Basically i am down to the last problem, which is an intermittent no-start where the starter motor will not turn. I believe i have the problem down to the NSS
. yesterday when the problem happened again, i adjusted the linkage that was on top of the tranny all the way to the left (standing in front of the car) to put it as far into the "park" position as possible, and then it started, so i am 99% sure the nss
was causing the starter not to turn. (also, it seems to shift fine, but the N gear appears more to the right on the dash then it should be, like in the middle of N and D) Anyway he is rather old and is not going to be staying with me for very much longer, so their are two things i would like to do:
1)I would like to wire in a small bypass switch on the plug that goes to the nss
, so that if he gets stuck again, he can open the hood and flip the switch to get started. The connector has 8 pins and i can take a picture if that would help. I am not sure if buying a new nss
is worth it when it seems like the adjustment was the problem, but he does not have a cell phone or anything so i really don't want him to get stuck.
2) I have heard their are also two gold bolts somewhere behind the dash that can cause a loose shifter, so i would like to take a look in there to tighten them. how difficult is this? I have taken apart the dash on my 96 honda accord many times and its not that bad, but just checking.
