Question about 1997 Mercury Cougar XR7

2 Answers

Sears did a computer eval on our car and gave us codes only

They hand wrote the codes and said to google them to find out what they mean. I did that and am not able to find out what is wrong with the car. 1997 Mercury Cougar XR7 6 cyl. Computer codes given are: PO155, P1132, PO141, PO161, PO135, P1152. I would love the site to look these up. Do you know where I can get the answers? If not do you know the answers? Thanks CSF Litchfield, Maine

    Dear countrycurt0,

    I don't know how this site works but I just now checked my responses. I have not rated anyone. Somebody else must have if that is possible. I am thankful for anyone that takes time out of their life to help someone else. No matter what the outcome. I am sorry that someone did this to you. I will try your site. I never even tried the wrong one. Thank You for your help. I will fix the rating if I am able since I didn't do it to begin with.

    God Bless

    Make that

  • Curt Downs Nov 15, 2008

    I am not sure why you gave me an 'inappropriate' rating. You asked for a site where u could look up the diagnostic trouble codes, and that's what I gave you. If you are having trouble with the site. let me know. I gave u the wrong site at 1st, but sent the correct one within a couple of minutes, hope u will consider changing the rating, or let me know why u felt it was inappropriate.

  • Curt Downs Nov 17, 2008

    You requested a site to look up codes, the one I use is You said u would 'love the site to look these up', Please change the rating, as 'inappropriate' is an inappropriate rating. This is a free service, all we have to indicate our track record of answers (and our time spent answering and researching info), is the rating of the asker, more than half of which don't take the time to rate our response. So, how about rating chev junk, he gave u the code descriptions, and how about changing my rating to something more appropriate, we would like to help again if u need us.

  • Curt Downs Nov 22, 2008

    thank you VERY much for fixing the rating mix up. Let me know if u need any more help on the cougar problem (is it resolved?). Let me know if I can help out now or later. Curt

It means the body computer has found a problem in the transmission or the module that controls the transmission.
You would need to have someone check the trans control module for faults.

Where is the eval vent solenoid valve and how do you replace it on a 2010 canaries V6. I am getting error code p0449.

On the 2010 Chevy Camaro V6, that vent solenoid is on top of the rear cross member. You might be able to squeeze a VERY small hand in there, but the regular service procedure is to drop the cross member down. Sucks, as I just had to replace the same valve.
