On occasion, a warning light E appears. the transmission seems to perform OK and the light disappears.

It will eventually start after cranking it long enough for the check engine light go off and the fuel pump fills the line with pressure. It will also start if starting fluid is squirted into the throttle plate assembly. I replaced the fuel pressure regulator, the problem still exists.

Just replaced water pump, and thermostat because my car kept overheating. Realized that my fan will not turn on even if I turn the ac on. I noticed that the 60amp fuse that controls the fan is blown, so I went and bought a replacement fuse. When I installed the new fuse, u turned the car on and when i turned th ac on the new fuse blew. any ideas on how I can get my cooling fan to work? And what would make the fuse blow like that?

How do you replace dash light bulbs on 1987 Mercury Cougar Anniversary edition? Left of side of dash lights work other 2 sections don't.

The car was parked and idling with a/c on and started emitting strong gas fumes. then it started miss firing until it died. When I started it up again it would barely idle. Now when I start it up it seems to be fine until I turn the a/c on ,then the engine starts emitting a loud humming noise and bogs down and tries to die. The engine light has not come on once since this has happened.
