Question about 1992 Mercury Cougar XR7
I had been driving for about 30 mins & made a 2min stop and was unable to start it. It turned over the first few times and almost started but then it was clear it wasnt going to start. Any suggestions
The fuel pump in th car is inside the gas tank, the tiny pump is cooled and lubricated by the gas it sits in, when you run it out of fuel it can seize up the pump bearings from heat, that is what has happened in this case i am sure. You will need to drop the exhaust system and then the fuel tank and replace the fuel pump, also replace the fuel filter.

Sounds like it maybe a weak fuel pump.Check your fuel pressure it should be 30-45 psi with key on and engine off.If not within specs replace pump and filter.
