Question about 2002 Mercury Cougar
My sister has a 2001 mercury cougar 2.5l 24 valve DOHC v6. drive gears will not engage, reverse is fine for now. wondering if there's a cheap fix or is the tranny shot?
Your transmission shifts are controlled by the PCM, Powertrain Control Module. It can be scanned for transmission fault codes which can guide your diagnostics. Autozone can do this for free. You would have to get the car there or find a technician who will bring their hand held scanner to our car.
But, try this first. Disconnect the battery for 1/2 hour. This will clear all the shift tables and the Keep Alive Memory (KAM). Reconnect battery and see if you now have forward gears.
If no luck with fault codes, this could be a possibility that requires a trans teardown.
MERCURY: 1994-2000 MYSTIQUE
ISSUE: Some vehicles may exhibit no forward gear ranges due to the misalignment of the forward/coast clutch cylinder snap ring with respect to the legs of the forward clutch piston.
ACTION: During assembly of the forward/coast clutch cylinder, the gap in the select fit retaining ring should be located midway (i.e., 45 degrees) between adjacent legs of the forward clutch piston. Refer to the following Service Procedure for details.

SOURCE: tire sizes
Open the front drivers door... or the passenger side front door... there should be a sticker there indicating correct tire sizes as well as pressures.

It is located on top of the engine under the throttle body, it sucks, plan on a whole day if you are a good machanic.

I do Believe that they are 225/65/15's Do you have the Original Tires now???? If so They have the Size right on the Tire. The Letters and Writing are in Black But, If you take a Piece of Chalk and Highlight the Writing you can read it better. The writting is right on the Side of the Tire.
