cant get out of park

what is the best gas to use for a 1999 mercury cougar with a v6engine

s it possible to replace a rack and pinion with manual steering? Would it be difficult?

Turn over key and nothing happens, No noise no nothing. What could that be?

THere is a weird plug on the back of the engine, against the firewall, over the exhaust, that is leaking. what is this plug? it is a big hex key. it is smoking really bad.

I have replaced the ignition coil, cams shaft senor and crank shaft sensor. It tries to crank but will not turn over.

I replaced the TSS sensor and engine speed control sensor check engine light went out but when i put in gear car wont move till i rev it to 3 or 4 grand. ABS and O/D lights flash on dash. A PCV valve hose is leaking and clogged bad. Would that affect the ABS System?

so i used to fill up with gas every other week for 20 bucks and now i am paying 20 bucks every other day!!!!!
and under the hood is smoking every so often... what should i do??
i dont know a lot about cars and i dont want to spend a ton of money to get the car checked for what it doesnt need to be checked for...

Why my cougar 1999 is overheating if the water pump and fans works properly, it doesn't have thermostat, radiator is clean. Also when the temp. gets half way the water gets out of the water container and the cap is new

do not know diagnostic code, how often, just bought it fromna private party and the digital speedmoeter does not work
need to get it fixed but do not know where to start.

Hi. I replaced my rack and pinion in my 99 cougar and afterwords found out that you don't want the steering column to move when disconnected. Evidently it did because only after the rack and pinion replacement the air bag light flashes, cruise and horn don't work. can you help me narrow it down? The I checked all fuses, circuit brakers, and even the inside of the relays 3 times and they all checked out. Sorry I don't have a code but if you've ever ran into this identical problem before then you more than likely know the problem/solution.

the car was running but there was no accelaration or power and it did not hesitation now after shutting the engine off it wont start--there is spark/compression/fuel pressure/

I've been able to find replacement ICM's for this car, from $80 - $230, but I don't have a clue where to find it on the car. Anyone know (please be very specific)? Note this is the V6.

when driving it acts like its missfiring

Rubbing/scrubbing sound @ left tire, esp when wheel is turned.

blinkers, power locks and windows stopped working. I'm not sure what the problems is, let alone how much it should cost to repair.

one day i went to lock my car doors with the remote key. It locked my passanger door and trunk in place (now the door and trunk cant open; not even with a key) The remote key no longe works. I have no idea what happened.

I have replaced all blinker bulbs and checked all fuses that seem all good. Now the problem has gone from intermittent to failure,and I have no blinkers or hazard lights at all.

repair electric operated window

Usually happens around 40 mph and then goes away above 40.
does not happen afterwards unless you are costing and then
ease back up to speed.
Does not do it if you step gas hard from a stop


this car idle too fast, can you explain what controlls the idle speed?

when my gas pedal is half way to the floor or more i loose power and it stutters. Runs great otherwise. what is the loss of power from.

I am being told I need a fuel pump harness as well as a fuel pump..

Had accelerator stick open for 3 seconds with no load Now have engine knock when accelerating Will still run with power and does get louder as engine warms up. 1969 Cougar Convertable with 390CI

i need to know the cost of a transaxel on a 2000 mercury cougar?

the system apprears to be working normally except no cold air. spent over $1000.00 dollars on kit which replaced all the hardware including the compressor. It worked for three days than faded away slowly to nothing as far as cold air, the vents and fan work o.k. but no cold air.

My 2000 Mercury Cougar will not start. I replaced the fuel pump and relay. I have found that there is no power to the pump. Any ideas?

Why does my ac only blow out of my defrost vent?

Recently did complete tune-up, incl. motor craft plugs, wires, pcv valve, intake gasket. car runs great when a/c is off. When A/c is turned on, however, engine skips and misfires. Car has 5-speed transmission. I would appreciate any ideas. No codes or check engine light present.

How do I remove the motor? I have the panel off and removed the 3 screws holding the motor. What else do I need to take off. I can't see much because everything is obstructed.
