It sputters when I give it gas and when I let up on the throdle it stops spidering. And going threw a lot of gas. Smell real bad like gas after I shut it off

The car shut itself off without any warning on an intersection after continuous high revving with a stuck gear. Struggled to start but when it did a loud squealing sound occurred and shut off again. I pressed the fuel reset switch and it started but the engine ran different and would not move at all. After a week a loud knocking/rattling sound occurred after starting and still won't accelerate. (It also did have a transmission problem with gear 2) Could it be that, time chain cassette, worn engine or what?

I have never heard of this before , she ended up hitting a guardrail when the wheel locked up . The damage can be fixed but not sure if I should fix the car if I can't figure out why the steering wheel locks up . It happened 3 times already the last time she hit the rail

I purchased 8 spark plugs and need to know how to install them

I purchased a fuel filter. How do I install it myself?

even when the doors are shut the light remains on.

Is there something I should add to the gas

every day all day but is full of uoil would this be a vacuum leak

Engine light came on and flashes. Engine runs rough with a constant misfire and lacks power

The car just cut out on the freeway, and will not start. The fuel pump is working and I get a spark at the plugs.

Brake peddle goes Almost all the wayto the floor. Brake fluid is full.

My car used to be able to get jumped and it started right up. Now it just barely makes one small single click sound. All the lights turn on and they do not even seem dim... It is extremely cold where I live. So maybe the starter needs to be replaced or the solenoid or I should I just go buy a new battery? Please any light shed on this ridiculous situation, would be greatly appreciated.. thanks guys

Replaced ABS module and the same issue. ABS unplugged or removed pulsating not felt. What else could cause this issue.

The Belt just turns and turns and won't turn on no spark

My car stop cranking so I recently changed the starter and battery and everything comes on fine but the car still won't start.What could be the problem now, and what should my next step be to do??

Tried turning off with key but all it does is act like it works but doesn't turn vehicle off what u think is wrong?

I have blinkers, headlights and turn signals. Took it down the street and they called all junkyards for a compatible fuze box. No luck. They said I needed to take it to an electrical place. And have wires checked. This was 4 months ago. Last month for a brief 10 min tail lights came on, then off again. What should I do. Autozone and others are no help giving me info on what to do.

i went to a salvage yard and pulled a radiator from the same make and model car or so i thought because when i want to install the replacement to my utter disbelief and confusion it seams that the replacement radiator did not have inlet or outlet ports for the transmission cooling lines
therefor my query is this dose a manual 1999 mercury cougar not have the same means of cooling trans fluid or am i just the proud owner of the only radiator for newer model vehicles on the planet with this (lets call it unique option.)

it starts up fine shifts when driving but its hard to get to take off when you start because it dies. it just started it today

only happens when engine is turned
on,if i just turn the key without starting
the car everything works. only abs and
battery diagnostic display lights show
when panel goes out.

hot wire from batter look like it cut and i can not find were it go to.

It will not move in drive.

Possible I need new computer. The keys would need to be programmed too. But if I'm wrong I'm out several hundred dollars. A yo e know about the computers in this vehicle?

we have tried everything and told this is why we hve no brakes the main brake box i need

don't know any other info.
