Question about 1995 Mercury Cougar

1 Answer

1995 MERCURY COUGAR V-8 AUTO


WHEN MY CAR GETS WARM, THE TRANSMISSION DOWNSHIFTS. SOMETIMES ONLY ONCE IN A WHILE, AND SOMETIMES SEVERAL TIMES IN A VERY SHORT DISTANCE. IT DOESN'T DO THIS IF DRIVING UNDER THE SPEED OF 35-40 MPH. i HAVE BEEN CHARGED HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS FOR THEM TO TELL ME NOTHING IS THE MATTER. I HAVE OWNED MY CAR 12 YEARS AND THE MAINTENANCE IS TIMELY AND UP TO DATE, EXCEPT FOR THIS PROBLEM.

    My 94 V6 cougar downshifts out of overdrive, sometimes all the way down to 2nd gear, after it has been driven some distance. It will do it quite unexpectedly, sometimes over, and over again, and then stop. Also, it downshifts quite hard too. When it does downshift, it only last for a few seconds, and then shifts back up.

After driving a short distance car will not restart. have replaced mas sensor. will not throw a code with mechanic. turns over but does not fire. after about an hour car will restart.


This may be a Crankshaft position sensor. Sometimes what happens with Ford and Oldsmobile is when the engine gets warm the crank position sensor loses its signal therefore not supplying a signal to the coil of coils to fire when they are suppose to.

I have a 1995 mercury sable its an automatic. I need to know which D should i be driving in. The frist D or the Second D.


use the first D. this is overdrive. it gives you the best fuel economy. The second D downshifts the transmission into a lower gear. this would be used when climbing a steep hill (it keeps the transmission from hunting between gears) or descending an equally steep hill as it would help slow the car without using the brakes.
