Had the same problem wiht my cougar. in some cases it is a faulty sensor. The sensor is really easy to replace and only costs like 15 dollars from any Ford dealership. Also you must fill the coolant past the recommended full mark. I replaced my sensor and still had problems, but when i filled the resivore up slightly past the "hot" fill mark i have never had problems wiht it since
ALSO WHEN THE ENGINE IS COLD THE COOLANT LEVEL IS ALWAYS LOWER THAN HOT. MIGHT WANT TO TAKE THE CAP OFF AND LOOK IN RADIATIOR WHILE COLD, MAY JUST BE A LITTLE LOW OF COOLANT. ANOTHER WORK AROUND WOULD BE TO UNPLUG WIRES TO SENSOR AND PUT A JUMPER WIRE BETWEEN THE TWO AND DISABLE THE PROBLEM.
This is one small problem with this generation Cougar, is that many of the low coolant sensors give false readings, saying that the tank is low when it is in fact, at the MAX line. To correct this, you can safely add coolant about .5"-1" above the MAX line without the reservoir overflowing when the engine get's hot.
Faceing the car.On the left hand side you have a engine coolant reservoir bottle.If you are just going to add some coolant.Make sure when adding coolant it is a 50/50 mixture.Do not add engine coolant when the engine is hot. The cooling system in your vehicle is filled with Ford Extended Life Coolant F6AZ-19544-AA.DO NOT MIX WITH A GREEN-COLORED COOLANT.
Only the Florida panther subspecies of the cougar is in danger. The population of the species as a whole is quite healthy.
Why, are you going to steal one?
Check coolant level Could be alternator going bad Could be coolant fan going bad
how do cougars use energy ??? Answer it by going on ask and answer my question
Of course it is possible! But it is very HARD, It is best to leave to the pros. and its going to be expensive and if you think you're going to do it by yourself better do what i did. Get a SVT engine with it with the transmission and you have something better than a cougar!!!!
The overflow tank for coolant will "boil" if there is air getting in the coolant chamber. This can be a head gasket going bad.
Sounds like a severely cracked head to me. Did you overheat the engine???? Is your coolant level in the radiator going down? I had the same problem with my 94 Cougar 4.6L. I had to replace the ECU. Hard to track down, good luck!!
You may need to add fluid to your cooling system. These lights are programed to alert you if the levels are low.
Hi there........ Early morning and then the afternoon. Depends where your going..
My 1999 Cougar did that too. To reset the alarm system, put your key in the lock of the driver's door and lock and unlock. That worked for me.
Most newer cars have the coolant sensor in the overflow bottle. Filling this will probably take care of it. Where the coolant is going is another issue. Head gas kit
low coolant. usually once it is tripped it will stay on until the ignition is cycled. so if the level is right on the border line it may only trip the light if u r going uphill, or whatever and then will stay on until the car is sut off
Yes, there is going to be a season 3 and maybe 4.
He was reported to be quite handy in the boxing ring going by the ring name of Cougar.
If your going through coolant then you have an internal head gasket leak you smell coolant because its getting into cylinder and burning
Engine oil mixing with coolant and/or coolant mixing with engine oil.Losing coolant but don't see any leaks. White smoke (steam) coming out the exhaust that has a sweet smell to it.
yes to martin especially yes to martinespecially
The fuel pump on a mercury cougar is in the fuel tank. You are going to have to remove the fuel tank, take the lock ring off of the tank, and then pull the pump assembly out.
That's going to depend on WHERE it's 9:00 in the morning.
it goes into your radiator, and then through your cooling system
possible leak in heater core.
You start to lose compression and coolant is in your oil
