I can't get my socket down to grip the plugs, since I read something about a stupid cover for a '95 & a '99 merc cougar, I'm wondering if I have to deal with this - just to change spark plugs.
I'm using extensions and have done hundreds on tune ups, but these dang plugs never seem to loosen to be removed.
The plug holes are so deep so you only see the tip of the plugs by leaning very far over the engine. It's my daughters car a 1994 Mercury Cougar V8.
Thanks.

I noticed oil leaking "behind" the oil filter and looked at the Mercury service manual and it shows a gasket behind the plate that the oil filter screws onto. looks like two bolts and a stud fasten it to the engine.

My car ran great until the other day the lights sarted dimming and flickering and then cut off , i bought a new alternator and new battery and still the battery light is on which is the same thing it did last time before it cut off.
I bought the car 7 months ago and replaced the alternator a week later. it worked fine for awhile but I noticed the dash lights going dim and then getting brighter. Battery light just started to come back on so I took it to a Ford dealer and they replaced the wiring harness to the alternator. that fixed it for about a week, now the battery light is flashing when I drive down the Road.
CAR WILL NOT START AND BUZZES UNTIL THE DRIVERSIDE DOOR IS OPENED. THE KEY SLOT ON THE STEERING COLUMN TURNS FREELY WITHOUT THE KEY INSERTED AND BUZZES WHEN IT HITS A CERTAIN POSITION.
OK so my car ran great didn't have a problem until the other day my battery light came on so I got a new alternator and charged my battery....it ran for a hour and I lost my radio than speedometer than all the digitals than it bogged.out and died... Haven't been able to fix yet... I used a multi-meter and checked the battery at 12.5 v but the alternator is at 2.8-3.2 volt range well I know the fuse it good b/c I'm getting some volts and all my other fuses are good all my wires are tight and all the connections are good.... I took the small red and green wires off (harness wires) and checked them the green is at 0volts and the red read the same as the battery... Can anyone help fell free to text me with suggestions 25254554043 Ryan
