WONT START

1995 Mercury Cougar

Engine Performance problem
1995 Mercury Cougar V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 95678 miles

My 1995 cougar just wont start. Son drove it out of oil. Rebult engine and ran good for about 8 months. Then it would drain the battery. Now it just wont start. It cranks but sounds like the starter wont engage the flywheel. Have replaced starter 2 times the alternator, the battery 2 times (keep drain to where it wont hold or take charge).

You have a short circuit eating up the battery do below battery drain test.other possiblities are starter, starter relay, transmission range switch and ignition switch.
