88 escort starting problems help
started my 88 escort gl (93k miles, 1.9 L4) one morning and moved it 50 feet, turned it off and then when i came outside 10 mins later it wouldn't start. i had previously fixed a headgasket problem with thermagasket a couple days before and it still had the 100% water + gasket mixture in the cooling system, maybe temps got to cold and it froze or seized or something
when key is turned all the way, the solenoid clicks once and thats it.
i tested the starter solenoid using the jumper cable method and it just clicked and nothing else. i went and bought a new one and installed it, then tried the igniton and still nothing, went and tested it with the jumper cable and the starter motor turned over for a second or two and then heard a pop like a fuse blowing or something like that.
also the fuseable links in there, how would i go about testing to see whether they are still good without cutting them is there anyway to take the fuse out??
this wagon has been kickin my ass for days
any help would be awesome
