Question about 1999 Mercury Cougar
The antitheft comes on then goes out right away,if we cycle the key enough the car will start.When the car starts it will start every time after that if you let it sit for one hour the car will not start again.We have changed the pcm,the TR sensor and the sensor on the steering column and it stll did not fix our problem
Hmmmmmm....this one might have to go to FORD to be fixed.Have you replaced the fuel filter?
That's probably not what's wrong, but if it's been a while,it won't hurt to change the fuel filter anyway.
Keep any source of spark away(trouble light,electric cord,etc.)when you take the hose off.Of course relieve the pressure at the fuel rail relief valve before attempting.

try cleaning out the idle control Valve. also called an IAC. Using brake cleaner remove the duct from the air cleaner and spray directly at the valve. It sits near the opening . It is a small component with 2 small hoses. If you can, remove it and spray right into the 2 holes on the underside.If that is not the problem it could be the EGR valve.Sludge bulidup in the IAC is a common problem.

the fuel filter is either blocked or installed in the wrong direction.the rotor and distributor cap are fine. swop the fuel filter around and try again.

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.
