View Full Version : 85 Capri RS

I have a 1985 Merury Capri RS with the 5.0, 4 brl HO. I am having starting issues. While tring to start the starter slowly cranks over and wont start. Also when I let the car sit it will start right up. It also is burning up the cylinoid. The starter seems fine. Could this be because of a bad starter or could it possibly be ignition issues like I have been told?

Hi krugkarting,

Check out Chapter 5, Section 19 of your Haynes manual - there's a good starter motor/circuit test there. If you don't have the manual, it's no. 36050.
