The transmission blows fluid back out the fill tube i and have to put a quart a day in it. All parts stores say that the transmission has to be disassembled to replace the filter and none sell it. I was told there is a pressure valve that may be clogged but i have no idea if it even has one or were it would be located. any suggestions??
Yes. I have torn apart and fixed so many cougars. So listen, cause I know what I'm talking about. Remove your battery and the black plastic cover your battery sits on and you should now be able to see through the bottom of your battery box to the side case on the transmission. On the top of this side cover case there is black hose that allows the transmission to vent coming out of the case. Well yours is pinched or plugged. You're welcome.

Before you put transmission fluid in, make sure it needs it. Check the transmission fluid with vehicle warm, engine running, emergency brake set and transmission in neutral. Pull the dipstick and wipe it off. Insert the dipstick back into the dipstick tube completely and then pull it back out. The fluid level should be between the two marks on the bottom of the dipstick. If it needs fluid pour the fluid into the dipstick tube (using a funnel). Only add about 1/2 quart of fluid at a time before you recheck it. Do not over fill the fluid.
the reason your trans blows out fluid after you changed the battery is because the original battery is connected to the ****** vent tube i also had this problemb .i thought the vent tube was for the battery but it is for the transmission solution dont reconnect it to the new battery it dont vent the same and plugs off the vent tube builds up pressure in the trans and bows back out the fill tube ! why ford connected the tanny to the battery ill never know . stuppidty !!!
