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).

Do you
have the same problem?

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.
