i have a 2002 mercury cougar the belt keeps slipping off and the other day i was at walmarts and it made a weird noise and started smoking well i thought the belt had just came off again.......we were puttin the belt back on and noticed it had gotten so hot it put a crack in the radiator so im now in need of a radiator im curious what other make and models of cars will interchange with my mercury cougar?

The car has been doing fine except one day I had drove it bout 25 miles and it just did nothing but died going down the highway. The lights don't go dim so I figured it wasn't the alt. My battery post was pretty coroaded so I cleaned them really good. It makes me mad because I just bought this car from a car lot and haven't had it bout a couple of week's and it all of a sudden started doing this. Please help me figure this problem out. Also it won't turn over after it dies for at least about five or ten mins. Then it will start rite back up.

Cousin and turned the cruise on and it died. And now it won't start and run. What's the problem with it

check engine code 443

I have had a bunch of work done to my car and not for sure if they forgot something. When I hit the accelerator it has a raw grounding sound but if I am on cruise you can't hear it. When I down shift you can hear the same sound. It's like a dry set of bearings or dry area that needs to be greased.

I had my oil changed about a month ago. Now I have to add a quart of oil to my car every two days but I don't see any oil spots on the ground when I park. Where is it going?

It acts like it wants to start but it doesn't

How much cost and trouble

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

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.)

I was driven my car to work amd then all at onces it started smoken white under the hood and died then i came back for it after i got off wrk and it crunk up but i only got about 3 miles down the road and it did it again and wouldnt start again what could be causen this problem

my check engine lite comes on intermittenly, codes show possible plugged EGR

the trainmission is receiving the command but it's allowing the gear to shift Whining noise also

It this most likely a broken cable?

Working prior to going in a store for 30 min . No air flow on heat or ac.

Cut the right side cat off and welded a 45 degree exhaust pipe in and now it runs worse , I had two codes for o2 sensors bank 1 , replaced the down stream , up steam was replaced about 3 years ago so didn't do that one , there's a lot of pinging when I first take off but once it hits 3500 rpm it takes off and runs great, when I had the right side exhaust open I started the car the see and here how it sounded , it had Good throdle response just loud , but once the pipe was on it changed

turn signal comes on when activated but only flashes intermittenly, stops completely at times

All wiring cked no prob. Just can not get turn signals or hazard lights to work

I have transmission oil in the antifreeze tank and it doesn't run good

A.c. compressor turns every 3-5 seconds but not continuously. Do you think it should have be recharged before adding the Freon?

Any suggestions on where to start looking would be appreciated.

Just put new thermostat and waterpump and housing on.

Thought fuel pump bad but it is fine. Problem appears to be electrical in nature. It cranks but does not fine. fuel is getting to the engine
