You haven't mentioned that it leaks antifreeze..... one alternative i can think of is the thermastat is failing. have you checked the engine oil to see what colour it is.... gray is not a good sign.

Mercury cougar stalls after 25 miles


It is most likely Carbureter Iceing. Most likely the "heat riser" has been disconnected from either end (where it attaches to the Air Cleaner, or where it connects to the Exhaust Manifold.

Replace your thermostat....often they simply get weak and work when they feel like it.

I have a 1999 Contour, it died while driving. Has power, no start


Most the time the engine dies while driving is due to a crankshaft sensor failure. When this fails, the engine can't be started since the ECM doesn't know the location of TDC to provide proper ignitions. Have a shop check out and replace this part then you are good to be back on the road. Good luck.

Low Heat on 1999 Mercury Cougar


I had the same problem with my 199 cougar 2.0 4 cyl.
The problem was air in the cooling system.

I had to bleed the air out of the system, and now the heat
works much better.

I put a flushing tee between the back of the thermostat and
the heater core, and made sure that water flowed out of there.
Then I disconnected the small hose from the top of the coolant
resevoir, and poured water into it using a funnel until the coolant
level started to rise in the coolant resevoir. Then started the car, left the radiator cap off, and let it come up to temperature (thermostat open)
then over a period of about 5 minutes, periodically "goosed" the engine to clear any remaining air bubbles.

The heat is MUCH better now.

Guages stop and irratic idle with dimming lights


what probley happened the alternator started to heat up alittle to much and caused the belt to spin on the pulley i would go ahead and get the alternator replaaced as soon as possible. as for the lights dimming and the gauges not working you was running off your battery making the vehicle mess up i would also get your battery checked while your at it.

Cars turns over but won't start


One thing to check is if the fuel pump is working and what the fuel pressure is. The pump is inside the fuel tank. The pressure must be 35 to 65 psi. The pump can be working but if the pressure is not enough the car will not start.
