I just got this 2000 Mercury Cougar a few months ago. I just started driving it this summer. Now it has been on the road for 4 months and I need to know what I need to get to maintain this car. My last car was an '86 LTD and I did the tune up myself. I don't even know where to start on this car. What does this car require for a tune up and how much of it can I do myself??? It is a 6 cyl and standard. I just found out it has not been maintained since last summer. (This is my first standard car)

My car ran fine on 12-23 then on the 27th got in it to go to work and it would turn over but wouldn't fire up.

I have a 1992 XJS 12 cylender with 35,000 miles. Havent used the car in a year. Today a winning started comming from the fuel tank (I think). I opened cap and seamed to be too much pressure and fuel flying out.Warm fuel. Is the pump winning because it is on way out or could the fuel filter be clogged? Car runs good but sometimes seams like its missing. Was going to change spark plugs tomorrow but I thats a different problem. I am wanting to solve the fuel winning noise issue.

Fuses look good. I can't find a headlamp relay

I just tried to pass inspection, and failed on the horn.

hybrid vue recently filled empty tank light press on gas gives acceleration heavy press causes hesitation then after a few seconds engine seems to open up but begins to shift hard

ALL GAUGES WORK BUT THE SPEEDO AND THE RPMS AND IT WONT SHIFT RIGHT AT ALL

THIS IS AN INTERMITANT PROBLEM.THERE IS LOTS OF HEAT AND THE
FAN WORKS WITH NO PROBLEM. THE DAMPERS ALMOST SEEM TO CLOSE OR SOMETHING IS OBSTRUCTING THE AIR FLOW.EVEN IF I TURN OF THE FAN FOR APPROX. 10 MINS AND TURN BACK ON STILL NO AIR FLOW.
IT SEEMS THAT IF I LET IT SIT OVER NIGHT IT IS OK. IF I DRIVE IT FOR A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME THEN IT WILL HAPPEN AGAIN, BUT THE FAN AND HEAT STILL WORK, JUST NO AIR FLOW

It looks like the wheel turns but the spring doesnt then all the sudden it pops and the spring turns.I think it is the strut bearing in the top.What do you think?

My Equinox is hard to start after adding fuel.I was told that it could be a purge canister? What do you think and where is it located for sure?
