Need more info first. Does the dash panel light up? Meaning there is fire to the car when the ign. switch is turned on but not to the starter. If not then the ignition switch on the steering column should be replaced. If the dash has electricity with the key on but no clicking or noise from the starter until several trys then the starter has a bad connection on the wires going to it or it is an internal connection problem. Solution then is to clean the connections where the wires connect to the starter, if that doesn't help then replace the starter.

There is a recall on the fuel pump - my SE had the classic symptoms - stalling around corners, hard to start, etc. Go to your Ford dealer and have them check your VIN for any recalls or TSB's. Good Luck - now, I have to go replace my water pump...sigh.

I'll go along with the first reponse. I have seen starter trouble with these fine pieces of machinery.

First I thought it must be the battery. After replacing that, I still had the problem. It turned out I had to replace may alternator. Now it works great.

Why does a child in a wagon seem to fall backward when you give the wagon a sharp pull foreard?

A child in a wagon seems to fall backward when you give the wagon a sharp pull forward because the force that is exerted on te wagon is greater than the force of the friction pushing the child forward while the wagon is accelerating forward. If the force was great enough or if the wagon were to continue being pushed with a constant or increasing force, the child would eventually fall off the wagon. If the wagon's surface had no friction and there was no wind blowing against the wagon but there was friction on the ground the wagon is rolling on, then the child would stay in the same position and would fall of the wagon if the wagon were to travel far enough. If the surface of the wagon had no friction, there was no other force stopping the wagon, then the child wouldn't move his position while the wagon wouldn't stop ever making it so the child had to eventually fall assuming the wagon is finite and doesn't go all the way around in a circle around a center of gravity.

It depends entirely on which (factory installed) radio you have. The instructions are different for each one.

Of course if you have an "after-market" radio you'd have to follow theinstructions for the suppliers particular radio.
