'83 cougar 8 Cylinders 302 F 5.0L TBI starting problem
i have a 1983 Mercury Cougar, 8 Cylinders, 302 F 5.0L TBI and i have just replaced the starter on it. Now, i go to start the car, and it won't. i can hold the key forward and pump the gas and it will start, but as soon as i let go of the key, it dies. i have heard various things from it needs a new ignition, to that you have to tweak something on the starter. i have full power to the entire car, the A/C works (not very well :P) and everything else is just fine, but it just won't stay running no matter what i do. any ideas of what it may be would REALLY be appreciated....
