Question about 1996 Mercury Cougar XR7

96 Cougar routing amp power cable through firewall.

Have a 1996 Mercury Cougar XR7... need to find a hole in the firewall to route power cable for a stereo amp into the cab. I don't want to start drilling holes in stuff, and I'm sure there's a way around this besides paying upwards of $70 to have the amp professionally installed.

If you look at the firewall area you usually can see rubber or plastic black plugs to run wiring to the passenger compartment; look by the left side kick panel on the floor next to your brake pedal; good area to drill if you have to ; make sure you insulate any cable or power supply going through the firewall so the wire is protected from rubbing or vibration

It started about one week ago my 96 mercury cougar XR7 won't go over 35 mph it just revs to about 3000 rpm. I replaced the pcv and had a complete tune-up, also checked the transmission. What could...


If it revs up & doesn't go,the trans is slipping
& will have to be rebuilt

Not going over 35 with no trans issues would
be a bad exhaust converter (blocked) & or
a clogged gas filter

Tune-up is sort of a outdated term and never
is a cure for much ,unless you have ignition issues

Never have to replace any PCV Valves. Remove & clean
every 3 years

How do you tighten a loose serp. belt for 1997 mercury cougar xr7


There is no adjustment on the serpentine belt. I'm assuming that you have a 4.6 since it's an XR7. There is a spring loaded tensioner that keeps the belt in proper adjustment. The tensioner may be bad, or just corroded in one position. If there's no diagram for the belt routing under the hood...draw one. Then remove the belt and carefully persuade the tensioner to move. Careful not to break it or it's mount. If it doesn't move, it's going to need replacing. It's the one on the little arm, the arm should move.
