Try changing the 'idle air controller' value/motor. A $60.00 part
You can remove this part and clean it using any fuel injection or intake cleaner. Carbon deposits sometime build up in the plastic gear and spring and does not allow it to work correctly.cleaning it can sometimes solve your problems.
wires, connecters, terminals
it could be something wrong with the ignition switch, and or alarm
There is something serious wrong, take it back!
I have a 2001 Mercury Cougar it goes in reverse and first and second but it wont go in drive when i put it in drive the rpm just go up.
It is quite possible in a 1996 Mercury Cougar, that when the dashboard instruments all quit at once, there is a fuse that has been blown. Most of the gauges in the dash run off the same fuse in most vehicles.
a slipping transmission, a bad tourqe converter, wrong firing order, wrong gap on the plugs, dist. cap put on wrong, to name a few.
I have a 1994 Mercury Cougar that runs good but burns alot of fuel and after the engine starts the and gets some heat, oil pressure gauge indicates low when there is nothing wrong. I have the same problem with a 1991 Mercury Cougar 3.8, doesn't burn fuel that much but a mechanician told me that it might be a miscontact on the gauge indicator, some dirt in oil pan blocking oil pump or the oil pump is going off. First thing to do is changing oil and filter replacing it by syntec oil in it so it will stay in engine more time when heating. If after that nothing changed check oil pressure at a local garage.
You didn't explain much of what was wrong, but with my cougar I thought it was the latch, but it was actually having to replace the bushings in the door hinge. It used to be that you could just by the bushings kit, but now you have to by the whole set up.
It is leaking. Have a complete fluid and filter change. Replace the pan gasket.
bad fuse, relay, wiring, or motor... get a test light and start trieng stuff

Poor fuel or water in the fuel. Using the wrong octane fuel.For the 2001 you should use Unleaded fuel only.87 to 91 octane.

Check and make sure that you did not swap the negative and positive on the starter. The starter is the only part on you car that does not have fuse protection and will cause a backfeed of current when starting and could cause any number of things to go wrong with your fuse system.
it was changed to istanbul. This is wrong^
AnswerTake it to a professional. Unless you know what your are doing, there are 2 systems you should not attempt to repair. ABS & SRS.This is the wrong answer , if you don't know ,don't post
Depends on what else is going on. Check the basics.... Fuel, Air, Spark. There is probably about 30 or so things that could be wrong. More info, then maybe we can help better.
I'd guess that there's something wrong with your seat belts. Why don't you have a mechanic see then since it's unsafe to not wear seat belts while in a car?
check coolant level and make sure there is no coolant leaks
If your overhead compass on your 1998 Mercury Mountaineer does not work, the fuse could be what is wrong with it. Check the fuse and replace it as needed.
Something is wrong in the SRS. Take it to an professional.
You might, but that would be wrong! Mercury has a strong magnetic field.
