90-93 Accords had problems with both the main relay and the ignitor. Any one of those can cause a no start condition (no spark). Do you have spark? I've never seen a car not start because of oil...

I'm not sure the tank will be large enough to feed the heater. Tankless heaters have a very large draw (gas wise), sometimes larger then a furnace.

I have a 89 Chevy G20 van that's been making this noise for the past 60,000 miles, and so far nothing "bad" has happened.

I'm not sure if the same noise on a FORD is as neglijable though.

In some areas it's required to have a switch within sight of the water heater. Also in some areas you have to "protect" the NM (I assume that's what you're using). I don't use NM in my area, so I...
