Cant see it being an ign. module. Sounds more like a coil, or a fuel problem. I'd say it sounds like a coil though. If the rotor or module look burned or corroded, I'd change them too Good luck, Cheers from Nova Scotia

SOURCE: 1994 Mercury Cougar idles good but sputters when given gas.

Vacuum leaks,Use carby cleaner sprayed lightly around suspect areas like injector seals engine will react and pin point a leak.H/T leads could be tracking or breaking down.Plugs may require replacement.Injectors could be dirty,try can of injector cleaner next time you fill the vehicle up.Is the air box and lid securely fastened and intake tube to throttle body leak free with no holes etc?There are a number of things it could be and tried to cover a few of them as its hard to imagine engine condition etc.Check that advance/****** can on distributor is functioning correctly(not leaking)Could also be air flow meter anyway let me know how you go Good luck

Sounds like possible block in catalyst or broken up and blocked catalyst or oxygen sensor fault causing fuel/air mixture confusion if you take first o2 sensor out of exhaust manifold/pipe and see if performance back then this will confirm blockage although will be slightly noisy while testing cos sensor removed.

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: When you press the gas peddle, it won't accelerate.

Take it back. It's most likely failed.

Your most likely about to go out of the 10 year 200,000 mile warranty so stay on top of them about it. After your out there is no help for them.

SOURCE: my 2000 Mercury Cougar starts ok then after a few

I have the same car. Same problem. We replaced the fuse box and it fixed the problem. But here we are 6 months later and the problem came back. So for a quick fix you can replace the fuse box. I'll let you know what the real problem is when i get it to the dealer.

Have you ran an Oil pressure test? low oil pressure (20lb)or no oil pressure(0lb)and the lifters will not open the valves enough to let fuel in to the cylinder to start your engine!

1997 mecury cougar v8 engine. Wont start. It is


Not sure if you got your cougar running or not, but I had a similar problem and it turned out to be my Crank shaft sensor. I replaced it myself, its fairly easy if you are the type that likes to pull stuff apart and fix it. The part cost about $20. you do have to move the ac compressor over but you don't have to remove it makes the job a lot easier. I am still running the 1997 cougar xr7 30th anniversary edition, it has 160000 miles on it and still running strong. I think these are the best cars mercury ever built, i hope they come out with them again in this body style and platform.

Brake lights wont turn off


dont worry all you need to do is just change the 2 sensors found onlong top side of the break peddle. it be cheaper if you could get it from the junkyard from even a mecury contour or mystic, both cars have all the same parts as the cougar , try it i did.
