Car keeps overheating.

Hey guys i'm going to replace the alternator on my 99 cougar 2.5 and I wanna know if a 100 psi air compressor will be strong enough to take the lug nuts off and bolts to the alternator off. Anybody? It has 1/3 horsepower running, 1.0 SCFM @ 40psi and 0.6 SCFM @ 90 psi. Please help.

I have a 1990 Cougar with 115,000 miles. the windshield wipers stop working. You can hear the wiper motor when you turn them on but they do not move. All suggestion welcome.

I cannot shift from 1 to 2 but if I put the car in 2nd before I start it I can go to 3,4 but if I have to stop it will not gear down. It will go into neutral only. I have to stop the car again and put it in 2nd and start again.

My turn signal lamps all worked fine until my car told me my left blinker was out. It flashes really fast all the time to tell me it's out but the fuse and bulb are fine. I went to an Auto Parts store to see if they could possibly find something that could fix the problem and they gave me a $10 758 Heavy Duty Electronic flasher. It looks like a little black box with prongs on it to plug it in somewhere but I can't find where. I checked the fuse box under the hood but there isn't a place to plug it in? So where does it go?

2001 Mercury Cougar 4CYL 2.0L - Already changed the thermostat and gasket but still have a leak, I think it may be the thermostat housing. Do I have to go to the dealership to to get a new one or do they carry them at an auto parts store? How easy is it to change? I think I saw 2 bolts holding the old one in, is that all I need in order to switch them out?

The dealer has recommended 3 repairs for my 1996 Mercury Cougar: Cluster Bulb replacement; Oil Filter Adapter Gasket replacement, and Lower Ball Joint replacement. He has quoted me a price of over $650. Is this a fair estimate for all the repairs? Can you give me an estimate for labor costs for each repair?

Hello I have had heat on 4 and it worked like that for over a year..Well I got in and now i have no heat at all So i bought a heat resitor well that didnt work..Had my blower motor checked and it was fine..Now trying to find where is the switch is located at any ideas? I did check the fuses...and relays..I got to work late tonight and its getting to cold for no heat.. Also there seems to be no power going to the heat resisitor... Please help this Girl out!! The power goes to the heat control switch but then there is no power going out to the resistor.

I flushed the cooling system and ran the engine in idle for a few minutes and noticed alot of oil in the recovery. Also the upper radiator hose is bulging. Obviously, a blown head gasket.I would like to know the easiest way to do this without removing everything on the engine.(the fuel lines I understand)

How do I locate a leak from a blown head gasket?

The front lamp (headlight) shields (covers) are dirty on the inside and limits the candle power of the shining beams.

The power seats (both) on my motorhome are not working. I was told circuit breaker needed to be replaced its 25amp. Bought circuit breaker at autozone however they did not have 25amp so i got 30amp. Installed it and it would click on and off intermittently and get very hot. I removed 30amp and reinstalled the 25amp. Have been without power seats for long time now as its hard to get anyone to work on it. Its been driving me crazy because i know i have a short and cannot find it. Looked up under the seat and there are alot of wires. There are two that go down through floor one red and i am assuming they are the wires i need to be concerned with. Whatever the problem is effects both seats. Thought maybe wire got caught on tract and got pinched or something. Does not seem to be the case as i looked under seat and inspected wires as much as i could see. I did notice that when fooling with buttons i could get seat to move a little for a very short time then nothing. Are circuit breakers and fuses both considered to be the same??

cranks but doesn't start weak spark

I accidentally abused the automotive cigar lighter in my car (held it in all the way for a while until it got white hot) and the next day it didn't work. Any ideas?

how to remove egr valve step by step 4.6 v8

I had the transmission rebuilt about a year ago and now the transmission is slipping and isnt wanting to shift from 1st to 2nd. what else could cause this problem or is it the transmission itself needs rebuilt again.

while idleing my gauge cluster lights pulsate (dim then brighten to normal (this process repeats itself)). It's a distributorless ignition system. The components are as follows- PCM, CKP, CKP trigger wheel, and coil pack. I'm unsure can we narrow it down it's probably the alternator regulator but maybe just the coil pack

Had my '99 Cougar painted recently, and the rear windshield wiper was reinstalled incorrectly and I don't want to go back to them. Do I have to go through the trunk to fix it? If so, how do I remove that protective covering?

The fuse box has burned up twice. The red wire on a plug that connects to the bottom of the fuse box keeps heating and burning the fuse box. This is a plug that also has an orange wire that connects to a plug in for an anylyzer hook up. It has something to do with the A/C and blower motor. When A/C is running the wire heats up. This has been checked by the dealership and also two independent shops but they can't find anything. Does anyone have an answer?
