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.

How do I change a altinator on a 2002 Mercury Cougar

Is this a v6? It comes out through the wheel-well. So you have to safely raise and support the vehicle, remove the tire, remove tie rod end from steering knuckle. Remove wheel well liner. Take negative battery cable loose, take belt loose, take wiring connectors loose from generator, remove bolts from generator, remove generator.

Just bought a 2001 Mercury Cougar v6 w/ auto trans sports package is it common for the steering wheel to have a inch of play

A little play is normal, but an inch is getting somewhat out of limits. The first thing to check is for play in the tie rod ends. If there is play in them, it can also lead to premature tire wear too.

I have a 2001 mercury cougar with the 2.5L v6 engine and the number 2 cylinder is misfiring. ive replace the spark plugs and wires but it still misfires

Its time to do a injector balance and cylinder leakage test, to determine whether the injector or its circuitry is bad . The leakage test will tell you if the cylinder has a compression leak.

2001 mercury cougar startor problems

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
