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.

SOURCE: 2000 mercury cougar wont start

what is anti-theft light doing? It should come on solid for about 2 sec after you turn the key on then turn off. If it is flashing after this then it is not seeing the computer chip in the key and you have a PATS problem.

SOURCE: where is the fuel filter

You will need a straight-head screw driver and possibly a 1/4 inch nut driver.

The hoses are held by white plastic retaining clips that you pop off with the screw driver. My new filter came with new retaining clips in case the old ones break during removal. The filter itself is held in place with an adjustable strap like one you would use for any hose. You can use a screwdriver, but I prefer to use the nutdriver to avoid mangling the screw.

You can change this filter without having to actually put your body underneath the vehicle. Jack it up at the rear jackpoint just fore of the rear right wheel. The filter is slighty forward from there. You can lay on the ground next to the vehicle and just reach under to change the filter. It is about the size of a regular coffee mug. It is cylindrical in shape with one end rounded with hose nipple and the other end flat with hose nipple.

Before removing the fuel filter I tried pulling the fuel pump fuse (15A fuse #9 in the power distribution fuse box in the engine compartment next to the battery) to bleed the pressure off the line. The engine however never died, but acted as if it would, so I shut it off. I did not know where to actually disconnect the pump. Pulling the fuse seemed to help anyway. The hoses were not under pressure, though still about a half-cup or so of fuel still leaked out, plus the fuel in the filter itself. That's normal.

1. Start engine, pull fuse, wait for engine to choke, turn off.
2. Jack up car, use Jack-stand for safety.
3. Pop clips, pull off hoses.
4. Loosen strap, remove old filter.
5. Reverse for installation.

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.

Ok one major question! Will changing the tcc solenoid in my 01 cougar fix the o/d flashing and make the car go forward when I try to drive it?

No. replacing the TCC or the OSS, will not make the transmission work. You can unplug these transmissions and they will still work, less OD. Sounds like you may have stripped the torque converter oil pump gear. Common in these older Mercury/Fords.
