the transmission has to be spit apart in order to change the trans filter.

The filter is actaully located inside of the transmission would have to remove the transmission and tear it apart to get to the filter

The transmission on a 2000 mercury Cougar is on the drivers side. If your planning on removing the tranny, the subframe must be removed. If your wanting to change the filter you are out of is deep inside the transmission. The pan on the side of the tranny toward the front of the car covers the valve body.

I heard there was an internal filter. I got a trany kit with filter and took the pan off but there was no filter there, just the valve bodies.

transmission filters are generally located just inside the transmission oil pan, have to remove pan and drain fluid to change filter.

what kind of tools do i need to change a fuel filter on a 2000 cougar

That transmission is supposed to be service by a drain plug like you have on your motor. it's on the bottom of the transmission. as for the filte, it's located INSIDE of the transmission. the only way to remove the filter on a CD4E transmission is to physically remove the transmisssion from the vehicle and take it apart. Ford does not provide a procedure to service the transmission filter seperately from the transmission overhaul.

According to my Chilton's Auto Repair Manual : For the 3.8 liter V6 engine in a 1991 Mercury Cougar : With engine oil filter change : ( 5.0 US. quarts )

According to the 1997 Mercury Cougar Owner Guide : ( Motorcraft FG-881 fuel filter ) for the 4.6 litre V8 and the 3.8 litre V6

The Owner Guide for the 1999 Mercury Cougar shows ( 5.8 quarts with filter change ) for the 2.5 liter V6 engine

For a Mercury Cougar , 2.5 litre V6 engine : According to the 1999 to 2002 Owner Guides : ( Motorcraft FL-820 engine oil filter )

The Automatic transmission breather tube is on the drivers side of the vehicle and is under the air filter box under the hood, it often reaches up near the battery tray.

Inside the transmission. Pan must be removed to access the filter.

The filter is inside the transmission and must be took apart to change the filter.

I'm assuming it is the same as the ( 1996 ) Mercury Cougar 4.6 liter V8 : With engine oil filter change : ( 5.0 U.S. quarts should put you almost to the full mark )

According to the 2000 Mercury Cougar Owner Guide : With engine oil filter change : The 2.5 liter V6 engine takes ( 5.5 liters of 5W-30 engine oil )

What year is your cougar and also is it a V6 or a V8? This information would be nice to know :) it is attached to the engine

In an automatic Eclipse, the transmission filter is located inside of the transmission. To change the filter, the entire transmission must be disassembled to reach it.

It is actually inside the transmission itself. You get to it be removing the transmission pan.
