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.

How to replace transmission oil pump for 2001 mercury cougar

Secure the vehicle on EVEN ground, preferably indoors. Place in Park, set the parking brake, and scotch the rear wheels. Use the jack to lift one side of the truck until you can place a jack stand under the AXEL. It can slip off the frame and crush you. A friend of mine died under a vehicle, and it was no fun. Repeat on other side. Once the stands are in place you can "walk" the truck higher with the jack and stands if you need more room. DO NOT exceed the height of the jack stands with blocks.

How to replace fuel pump on 2000 Mercury Cougar.

First off I am sorry you have a cougar also.... I am on my third fuel pump ... stupid car anyways. If you didn't do it yet one make sure you get one from the dealer... Hopefully you will have better luck than me i paid 400 last year and tried to get one on warrenty then I had to wait since may to august to get it good news for you Ford should have it off back order. It is in the fuel pump you can 1. drop the tank (huge pain) or 2. it is WAY easier to take out your back seat ther eis a small hole to see the pump covered by a black plastic thing. You can then make the hole bigger and pull the pump out that way.
