Why would your 1990 Mercury Cougar go through an alternator a year?

Hey Cari==Make sure there is good air flow around and through the alternator. Restrictions from heater hoses around alternators can cause them to overheat and fail. GoodluckJoe

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.

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
