2001 mercury cougar transmission filter replacement


The filter is located inside the transmission, you must remove the pan on the bottom of the transmission, very messy fluid will go all over the place and onto you in must cases.

01 mercury cougar lost clear fluid & there is no pressure to gas pedal, not going but starts


Check the transmission, the automatic transmission on the newer (1999+) cougars if develop internal issues and will cause the powerband servo to come out. Look under car near front for a round opening about that will be very shiny (this will be where the fluid came out). If you see this then you'll need to replace transmission, it will be cheaper then rebuilding. I've owned 2 of these cars.

The warning light for the automatic transaxle came on. It won't shift out of first gear till about 5000 rpm's. The transmission fluid is full. Th e owner's manual says take it in for service. What could be...


Modern transmissions rely on several different sensors on the engine and the transmission , as well as a transmission computer. You are gonna have to take it to someone. It is kind of a dilema because I dont trust dealerships at all , and transmission shops are almost as bad.

Where does the transmission fluid go in a 1991 mercury cougar


If you need to add fluid, just pour it in the tube that the transmission dipstick is in. Be sure to check it when the transmission fluid is fully warmed up and DO NOT overfill.
