Question about 1996 Mercury Cougar XR7
Yea it shifts into all of the gears fine. We jacked the back end up to see what its doing and when in reverse it drives forward then it stops and stays for a while and when we give it gas it sits there not spinning and then it will spin again after a while then stop as if it its trying to go into reverse. When put into neutral, drive, first, and second it drives forward at about 3-5mph. Also someone told me it could be caused by the overdrive keeping the car stuck driving forward and the overdrive doesn't work properly so we took the cover off the shifter and the wires weren't connected completely so i fixed that and thats when it went from driving constantly forward in reverse to stopping and going as i described above.
Something wrong with the Overdrive.Is it a sensor or a control module.Sounds like it might sounds like it gos worse after you hooked it up.Did you just buy the car?
