If the fluid was brown or gray when you changed it, I am afraid you are a little too late and have already sustained internal trans damage.

I have a 99 Mercury Cougar 2.5 v6. I have only reverse. No forward gears. It's an automatic transmission


check the fluid condition/ex. full level/rose pink/red color is good if it's brown it's burning this could be from slipping/ improper cooling from hot running engine(the tranny lines go through the radiator)broken vacuum line/pressure loss dirty electrical connectors/blown switches inside the tranny/or the tranny is completely shot==this all depends on what you find if your engine has been running rough for a while your loosing vacuum inches and proper voltage and this will contribute to ruining a transmission in a short time also high heat /hot running engine == old transmission===I'm fried out === junk yard transmission=$$and a lot of work / rebuilt transmission===$$$$$ and other repairs as needed to not burn the new one out in 6 months or less good luck

Where is the transmission fluid drain plug for a 2000 Cougar


Your Ford has no drain plug, to change/drain the trans fluid u must remove the transmission pan, u may be able to lower fluid level with a fluiod siphon pump (rated for oil) through the dipstick tube, harbor freight tools sells a pump for this purpose.
