Look on the VECI label (Vehicle Emissions Control Information) under the hood, likely on the radiator support. The vacuum diagram should be shown there.

The last escort I worked on had the identical problem . The solution was the distributor module had burnt out. This is the flat, black, electronic module, next to cap. Has 2-4 screws and requires dielectrical grease on the underside for isolation. Has flat bar connector which has 4+ connector pins. Car will turn over, but will not start. Replace this module for about $25-30 at most parts stores.

The VSS is located on the side of the transmission casing. As for your solenoid question, you need to be specific about which solenoid and what you are trying to repair or replace.

Could be the ignition switch itself. Under the hood where all the wires go into the fusebox in the cab is a good pkace to start. You need to take the bolt/nut off and pull the box and wires apart. I have seen fuse blocks heavily corroded and cause problems as you are haveing. Also could be the ecm (aka)computer in your car is going bad. You can get a remanufactured one cheap. And it is simple and strait forward

i myself had this problem it cud be your thermostat malfunctioning a clogged heater core or a leak in the cooling system or even worse a bad head gasket . does your overflow tank blow out coolant? check your oil look for water if no check your coolant over flow tank does it smell like exhaust? if oil is good and overflow tank smells fine you have eliminated bad head gasket few right.so then you check thermostat make sure its not sticking open or closed .check heater core if you have heat thats good . so best case sinario its the water pump atleast was the case with mine in summer ran water in it but water evaporates quickly as expected but as winter approached i added antifreeze right then and there the water pump started to squeel and leak antifreeze out the weep hole located on the top of water pump i replaced water pump and have not had a problem since hope this helps good luck

There is a problem in the electrics of the vehicle. First place to start is to check the alternator drive belt for condition and tension. Next place is the battery terminals and condition and tension . Third place is to have a load test done on the battery as it may have an internal short and drawing all the current from the alternator. In effect when you add power requirements ( park lights then brake lights then headlights) you are actually using more current than the alternator can supply to keep the engine system running.

It appears that all these are on a single fuse. Locate the fuse box under dash near the steering column and remove the cover. A fuse diagram will be on the back side of this cover and will tell you which fuse to replace. Owners manual will tell you the same.

1. Make sure you have a detailed description of the noise is concerned with, including whether the noise is occurring at idle or above idle speed (does it disappear above 1,200 rpm), and if the engine is cold, hot or both when the noise is occurring. These engines generate a lot of "normal" noises 2. Determine what environment is in when the noise is most noticeable to them (inside passenger compartment, next to building with/without the driver and/or passenger window open, or beside the wheel well). Validate by using your own perception. 3. Compare the noise generated with a new vehicle, if available, with an ENGINE build date of 3/30/2005 or later on Mustang and 4/18/2005 or later on F-150 to F-350, Expedition and Navigator vehicles. if the noise is the same, the noise is normal and would be a characteristic of the vehicle. Do not continue with this bulletin. 4. Diagnose noise when engine is at normal operating temperature. Verify oil temperature by using a diagnostic scan tool and monitoring the engine oil temperature. 5. Check the type of oil filter installed on the vehicle. A dirty or clogged filter may cause a pressure drop. Look for aftermarket brands not recognized in the market or a production filter that has gone beyond the standard Ford recommended change interval. 6. Check for signs of oil brand used and viscosity.

You've just got a bad ground. ALWAYS check the ground first.

Leaky heater core(or maybe just the hose are seeping onto the core).

Start with the vacuum hoses on the motor, this will do this. the vacuum hoses are rubber hoses three quarter inch in diameter on down to real small hoses and can be located anywhere on the motor or under the hood. Look for a hose off, cracked, broken, or loose at a connector.

Pull the dipstick and make sure the oil isn\'t creamy white. if so, she\'s blown a head gasket and probably way more.
