The best advice i can give you is to purchase a haynes repair manual at your local auto store. it'll give you step by step instructions. $18 they are usually hard to get at, but there are 2 bolts holding the starter in place, after removing the wires, just remove bolts and wiggle out. no special tools required. make sure to disconnect battery first. good luck

2001 Mercury Cougar, won't turn over


This will sound stupid but check to make sure all the bulbs, yes I said bulbs, as in brake and turn signals are the correct bulb. No kidding. I fought a problem like this in my shop for a week on a mustang. It had a wrong brake light bulb. Just a idea. See if it will start by jumping the 2 posts on the starter solenoid under the hood on the inner fender. It has two battery cables going to it. use 2 heavy screw drivers to do this. Do not tough the metal of teh screw drivers. The solenoid could also be bad.

Mercury 2001 cougar V6 startor problem


Have the car put up on a lift or jack up and support with jack stands. Loosen the two bolts holding it up. It is located at the rear of the engine close to the transmission on the drivers side. disconnect the wires and mark so when you put it back in you will know where the wires go.
