Question about 1996 Mercury Cougar XR7
Yea it goes into park, but when i first bought the car it just wouldn't go into reverse at all and it did nothing. So we had a 1994 cougar and i know the transmission in it was good because i drove it the day i put it into the 1996 cougar since i figured it just needed a new trans. but it didn't help at all since know it drives forward in reverse, a machanic said its not the transmission thats the problem but he never got around to figure out what it was.
I would need more info but it sounds like your trans shifter cable is out of adjustment ; you need to carefully with the brake on and the car idling; move your trans shifter cable to all positions to check for forward and reverse.
Make sure car is chalked or raised of the ground ,
