Hi! I have a 99' Mercury Cougar. Was driving today and on ice hit a curb with my right front tire. Hubcap cracked, but the rim and tire were fine. Still felt off, so I stopped. It appears something bent holding the wheel. How much would it cost to fix it?
I have a 2002 Mercury Cougar and it has a high pitch humming through the air breather coming up into the intake and I can't figure out what's causing the high pitch humming. any thoughts on where it's coming from? what ever it is it won't let the car start and when it does start it keeps dying and it won't accelerate.
Manual transmission will shift through all gears easily but will not move at all just rev up. What could be the problem in your opinion and also if possible could you give an estimate of about the cost for parts and how long will take to fix.

Thank you so much I appreciate it a lot
