How do I test a distributor in a 1990 Geo Tracker?
It will not start.
Start at the spark plug end of each plug lead and check each lead is dry and not damaged. Using insulated pliers or insulated grips, and a new spark plug, rest the spark plug threaded section on the engine block. Crank the engine and look for a clean, bright spark. You might need a helper to do this. Repeat this for all the plug leads.
ONLY REMOVE ONE PLUG LEAD AT A TIME. Refit the plug lead your using BEFORE you remove the next
one. If there is damage replace ALL of them, then you get a constant spark on all the spark plugs.
Next, remove the distributor cap and examine it closely. There should be no cracks or splits In the body. The terminals inside should be clean, bright and shiny. Removing only one lead at a time check the connecting holes in the top of the distributor for damage or corrosion. If ANY damage or corrosion replace the cap.
Examine the rotor inside the distributor. The rotor should be undamaged and the metal terminal should be clean and shiny. If damaged or corroded replace it!
If it's an older 'points' setup check the moving points as they wear out over time. The more modern electronic distributors will need a specialist Auto Electrician to test the electronics inside it. Yours is probably the electronic type.

Where is radiator drain in 2003 Mercury Grand Marquis?
**NOTE** Only do this repair when the engine is COLD to avoid getting scalded by the coolant.
Most drain plugs are fitted to the lowest possible point on the radiator. Usually one of the two bottom corners. However, not all radiators are fitted with them. In some cases you need to slacken the clamp on the lowest radiator hose and pull it off to drain the coolant.
