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
Its a sign that either your battery or alternator is starting to fail.
the battery could have a dead cell, this could cause it to not charge. Have the battery tested to be sure.
I just replaced the alternator in my 2000 Mercury Cougar and with the labour, belt, idler, alternator and tensioner it was roughly $700 Canadian!!If it wasn't such a good car i would have though twice about fixing it but I've never felt safer in any other vehicle besides the Coug!
There is no official best insurance company in Texas to insure a Mercury Cougar. Rates would vary depending on your driving history.
Battery light usually means alternator not charging. Most common solutions would be be a bad alternator, bad connection, or loose alternator belt. If the battery and alt test ok than check the connections to the alternator and battery. You may also have a battery drain (something that is staying on and killing the battery)
no it is defently rear wheel ================================================== That would depend on which model year , there have been rear wheel drive and front wheel drive versions of the Mercury Cougar
On a 1995 Mercury Cougar ( V8 and V6 ) Bank 1 is the passenger side of the engine Sensor 1 would be close to the engine before the exhaust passes through the catalytic converter
In october 1999 a recall came out for the headlights on ford thunderbirds and mercury cougars that require a new headlight switch with an incorporated circuit breaker contact the local ford or mercury dealer and they can help you out
yes if the other car is also a 4.6
Needs new alternator.
Normally one would be able to purchase a used Mercury Cougar at any General Motors dealership. Of course, you could also check the classified section of your local newspaper.
I had the same problem in my 1999 Mercury Cougar, I replaced the flasher located in the blinker assembly. It was very simple to do. Flasher cost about $10
probably the fuel pump?
are you sure it is not tail shaft sensor. This would be for your speedometer
maximun through the alternator.
The Haynes Repair Manuals would have a diagram of the serpentine belt on a 94 Mercury Cougar XR7. You can find the manual at your local library, book store, or most auto parts stores.
There may be a drain on the electrical charging system.First place to look would be the alternator.Put a tester on to the alternator to see if it is faulty.Check brushes in alternator.
I have a 2.0 1995 Mercury mystique the battery charge light was on no output on old alternator. Replaced alternator No output from new alternator "charge light out" (wiggle test wires& re-check wires) at alternator *still no output* is there a fuse that could be the problem or just another bad alternator... I would check the alternator plug before getting another alternator, it may be bad. And is a lot cheaper to replace.
Fuel pressure regulator.
Need a little more information. there are a number of reasons why your cougar would run rough. Anywhere from the mass oxygen sensor to the idle control sensor, oxygen sensors and on and on.
i would check eBay or at salvage yards
ford comet, mercury maverick, mercury cougar, mercury meteor..ford falcon...if any had these would be the ones that would that would interchange with mustang..not sure if thats what you inquire..these i know for ford i believe
You would have to take out the engine and then it would make it easy to take the transmission of of the engine.
