Need MUCH more information in order to help.

Is the engine getting spark? Is their fuel pressure at the rails ?
Is their oil in it ? Battery connected properly ? Miles on the engine?
Engine size ? Has any one ever replaced the neutral safety switch ?

I have little knowledge about my car, I can change the oil or a flat tire, and I know the names of tools, so any instructions have to be pretty descriptive. A mechanic did a diagnosis on my car and told me...

Your best bet is to purchase a vehicle specific repair manual at your local auto parts store. It will contain the necessary instructions, and most likely some pictures as well, on how to perform this task.

Good luck!

Mercury xr7 starts then starts coughing and chocking like not

My cougar does the same, it starts and then about 1 minute later (or so) the check engine light comes on and the car idles really high, with black smoke out the exhaust. It stays in second gear i think and it will not shift out of it. Max speed is 40 mph with the rpms screaming, it will go off after a long time but this is agrivating. I have a 94 mercury cougar xr7 3.8 ltr Any help please?
