I have a 99 mercury cougar. the fuel pump has just been changed, the filter, the lines. when all that got done it started like there was never a problem. went out about 3 hours later, and it will crank and...

Pull the plugs,see if they are black. To much gas. replace the fuel pressure regulator. If white, not enough fuel. Check the fuel filter, if dirty or rust colored replace the tank, pump and filter again.

Fuel pressure problem

The fuel pressure sensor is not the actual pressure of the fuel in the rail,it is in the evap (emmissions) side.Just vapors,shouldn't make the car run poorly. Low fuel pressure is a different problem,I would check the pressure regulator first (under hood,on the fuel rail),make sure the vacuum hose is ok and pull the hose off the regulator and make sure there is NO fuel in the hose.20 min,that seems odd ,try it with the gas cap OFF ,maybe there is too much vent. Only thoughts I have ,good luck!

1994 cougar fuel pump relay

From your saying looks like you have a feeding problem. Do you hear the fuel pump working? if it is working check by using the fuel pressure tester how much is the flowing pressure and if it is in the recommended pressure flow. Also check even after the fuel filter if the fuel is flowing into the rail and the pressure regulator is working. Last check if your injection system is working ,if the ecu sends a message to the injectors to work.

My fuel pump on my 99 cougar v6 only runs for a half second then shuts off I've replaced the filter , the pressure regulator valve , the pump and it still does the same thing . could I have a ecm prob

Generally, the computer only runs the pump long enough to start the engine and build oil pressure. After that, the oil pressure switch keeps the pump on, most of the time by supplying a ground to the fuel pump relay. This is a built in safety thing, when the engine isn't running, the fuel pump shuts off. Most public libraries have Chilton's manuals, or you could pick up a Hayne's manual at a store like Autozone. These books can help you locate the relay and oil pressure switch, as well as provide wire colors for your specific vehicle.

The fuel pump on my 99 cougar v6 only runs for half a second the shuts off. I replaced the filter the regulator valve and the pump and it still does the same thing?

What are your symptoms? The fuel pump will shut off immediately when the pressure is up to normal.If the car isn't running,this can take one second or less.
Please describe the car's troubles to us in detail? don-ohio (:^)

1994 cougar will turn over but wont start, i put start fkuid and start normal

If it starts when you spray in starter fluid it would sound like a fuel supply problem. Make sure you are getting fuel and have a sufficient supply. Possibly a bad fuel pump or pressure regulator.
