Question about 2001 Mercury Cougar
Car ran great before until today, it just died for no reason. Seems it ran out of gas but still have over a quarter tank.
The car still would crank over, but dies after a few seconds. I checked the fuel pump, and could hear it whizz or humm when I switch the ignition to on. So I decided to replace the fuel filter (100K+ miles anyways). But car still dies after starting.
I called the Recall Hotline since there were issues with the fuel delivery module (FDM) in the pump, but I was informed the VIN did not match any recall or there were no active recall on the vehicle and the FDM problem did not affect my make/model.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks - Dante
I had the same problem at 100,100 miles on my cougar, it burned up fuel pump's three times,changed ignition coil and no problems since, now i'm at 115,000

Have someone to check the fuel pressure. That sounds like your problem. Could be your fuel regulator or fuel pump.
