Question about 1996 Mercury Cougar XR7

2 Answers

Check engine code 1407

My check engine light came on, I went to the Jiffy lube to check fluid levels, they ran diagnostic and it came up code 1407. They didn't know what it was since most codes are only 3 digits. It's a 1995 Mercury Cougar XR7 V8. Thanks

My v10 excursion overheated going up a hill, I quickly pulled over and the car turned off. After an hour we checked gauges all was good so we started truck. Knockign started when put in gear and gas.


Sounds like the bottom end went out in the motor. Whoever tried to tell you the oil shifted is full of garbage. The oiling system is pressurized and designed to not starve the engine of oil under normal use. Proving that a quick lube place is responsible for engine damage is nearly impossible which is why many people won't use them. If you do you have to inspect the fluid levels and check the filter and drain plugs yourself. Every time before you accept the vehicle back and sign anything. Sorry to say it sounds like you may be spending big $$ to fix your ride. It's possible that the bottom end can be redone but since it ran hot I would not risk it. With aluminum cylinder heads it only takes one time of running hot to cause damage to the top end of the motor.

How do I fix the Variable valve timing on 2008 saturn vue


Jiffy Lube is not a diagnostic shop

Take to a local repair shop that has been
in some place for 25 years

That is not something you can to yourself

The codes are used to diagnose the faults

I would suggest you never use a Jiffy lube or
other quick lube places,they could ruin your vehicle
& all of them have for decades ,been subject to many
fraud investigations

Service engine light is on, with no error codes


Disconnect the negitive battery cable for an hour. This should clear it. Also check the oil levels. Its possible they didnt fill them to the proper levels.

Engine light came on recently and Jiffy Lube guys did diagnostics and found nothing and turned it off and now it just came back on, malfunction or get checked?


If the check engine light came back on after the computer was reset you need to take it and have the code read to see what the problem is. Most auto parts stores will check it for you free such as Autozone, O'riely, Pep Boys.

Sensors went bad, at 60 k miles, is this covered in warranty


you need to take the vehicle to a real mechanic. Jiffy lube employes are not mechanics. Change your oil at jiffy lube and get mechanical work done at a reputable auto dealer or mechanic shop.
