light are turn off doors are closed main lights are of yet the park lights stay on

My heat only works for a short period of time then it turns cold. No heat!!! What's the problem?

My key will not go in.? Its like something is blocking it. The bell sounds but the key only goes in a third of the way and the steering wheel is locked.



It starts in any gear it will move then stop is this a bad transmission or something else

My 91 cougar dies while I'm driving between 40-50 miles it has coolant a new starter alternator plugs I had the fuel pump checked it's working I have no lose or disconnected wires that I can find but once the car cools down it will start right up

Tried to shift into reverse, but won't shift back to reverse or park from neutral

I bought my car about a year ago. Ran great until one day heading home everything lost power and it died. Got new battery and alternator. Six months later, here we are again. Last time though, it died and I couldn't restart it period. Today, battery light came on, everything dimmed, pulled up to a stoplight and it died. 5 minutes later it restarted and drove it 2 miles and it did it again. Because I can restart it, i'm hoping its not the alternator? HELP?!?!?!
Thanks

It makes this noise once every 2 to 3 weeks. Usually when I turn on my heat. The car will start back up. What's causing this? I keep a check on all the fluids.

After I hear this sound and I am making a turn the car turns off, but will start back up. I have been checking the fluids regularly. Need help.
thank you

1995 Mercury Cougar with actual-original mileage 68,148

HAS PLENTY OF FLUID AND DOESNT SMELL BURNT SOMEONE FROM 4 1/2 YRS AGO SUGGESTED IT COULD BE PCV VALVE RATHER THAN TRANNY ISSUE ANY HELP WOULD BE GREAT. JUST STARTED THIS WEEK THANKS BRIAN

When I drive it seems like a roaring noise is coming from the tires and the guy I bought it from said it could be easily fixed by replacing the brake drum ..would that fix it or is that not even what's wrong with it?

Can I use the one with two rails and what do I need to connect it

Gear is locked up tight, can't move shift at all, back wheels won't move at all....

I have a loud wobble sound coming from my right side.

bottom, back,left of engine there is a plug in. ..mine had nothing plugged into it. ..it's it a knock or oil sensor?

The car is a Ford Cougar 1993 bought in Mexico; V8 Motor (Not the Super-charged motor) with Air Conditioning

119000 miles 1oil change no tune up haven't been drove in 6 months

Does anyone know where Somewhere to buy all of the factory body panels, interior pieces,and stock mechanical parts?

It idles fine while it's in park but when you shift into reverse or drive it idles down so much that it almost dies but once you start going it's fine, once in a while it does it if your stopped at a stop sigh but not always, what could cause that?

I need a list of all of the front and rear suspension components, bushings, shocks, and struts

When I start my car it immediately revs itself up high and then idles low. It repeats this process by itself until it eventually cuts out. It also does the same thing when I come to and stop and will rev up while driving but not increase in speed. It jerks as if I am skipping gears as well and it will cut out at random when I'm driving. When coming to a stop I have to keep pressure on both the gas and brake to make sure it wont jerk or cut out. When I try to take off it has a rough start. Recently when I try to start it, it cut out and white smoke came from the engine. I know there are probably a lot of issues with the car but what are the more common issues it could be starting with the least expensive?
