SOURCE: o2 sensors on a 99 mercury cougar v6

I just got done replacing the O2 sensors in my 99 Cougar due to throwing a P0135 malfunction code. There's 3. Facing the engine there's one in the front coming off of the front header, which is easy to get to. Another more tricky one if between the engine and the fire wall on the rear header pipe. The third is under the vehicle behind the transmission pan on top of the exhaust. In order to replace the O2 sensor near the fire wall you will need to remove the 4 retaining bolts for the ECM module and move it out of the way. Additionally you will need to remove the 2 retaining nuts for a wiring harness that is seated below the ECM module. Pay close attention to the connectors because the front and under vehicle O2 sensors have round connectors the one near the firewall has a squared connector. I was able to replace all 3 by myself in approximately 35 minutes. If your throwing a O2 heater malfunction code it is most likely going to be the sensor near the firewall. make sure that you know someone with a code reader so the code can be cleared. If you're do for an emmissions inspection be sure to put at least 40 miles on the new O2 sensor with different types of driving (e.g. highway, coasting, decellerated turns and rapid acceleration). Gotta love project cars for your kids!!

First off you must remove the back seat to gain access to the three mounting nuts of the upper strut mount. Then you can remove the nut and bolt that pinches the the rear spindle assembly to the lower strut. separate the two and pull the strut assembly out of the car.

How to replace left control arm on 99 mercury cougar


Here's what I found on Yahoo answers:
For the driver's side: yes, you will have to raise the motor.
On all models, remove the front motor mount, Mark the position of the right engine mount, remove 3 right engine to mount bolts. remove one right engine mount to body nut. On all models hold the strut shaft with an 8 mm allen wrench, loosen top retaining nut 5 turns. Raise vehicle, remove ball joint to steering knuckle pinch bolt. seperate control arm ball joints from steering knuckle. Do NOT damage ball joint seal. Remove pinch bolt attaching steering knuckle to strut. Slide steering knuckle up on strut, Move transaxle to gain access to control arm nuts and bolts. remove 2 nuts and bolts and attaching control arm to subframe. Lifting up control arm remove.
Now this to mark the motor mount because you are supposed to use a powertrain alignment guage when putting back together. if not you can bind the motor in the unibody and make for a shaky ride.
that drivers side lower control arm calls for 4.3 hours where as the passenger side calls for 1.3 hours. So you can see what your in for.
BTW these instructions are taken straight from the Ford repair manual.

The lower breaking lamps on a mercury cougar are not lighting up. Have checked the bulbs and the fuse and all ok. The break lamp in the rear window works fine as well.


IN THE BREAK PEDAL IT HAS A SWITH BUTTON THAT WHEN YOU PUSH THE PEDAL TO BRAKE IT MAKES THAT THAT BRAKE LIGHTS TURN ON AND WHEN YOU RELEASE THE PEDAL TURN THE BRAKE LIGHTS OF THESE SWITCH HAS 2 CABLES YOU NEED TO CHANGE IT IN A YUNKYARD YOU CANT FIND IT CHEP IF YOU DONT FIND A MERCURY COUGAR SEARCH A THUNDERBIRD OR A GRAND MARQUIS OR LINCOLN THEY HAVE THE SAME TYPE OF PARTS AND ITS EASY TO REMOVE IT YOU CAN DO IT YOUR SELF

How hard is it to do a tune up on a 99 mercury


If it's a six cylinder, the air filter and fuel filters are accessible. The front spark plugs are not too hard. The rear plugs are difficult and you can expect to tear a knuckle or two trying to change them.
