Question about 1999 Mercury Cougar
I have a 1999 Mercury Cougar V6 Cylinder 2.5 Liter engine. I changed my oil a week ago and the car ran completely well. But a couple of days later the oil light appeared back on and it's starting to worry me. Please tell me if i'm putting enough oil in my car, i'm putting too much, and/or do i have a leak?
Simple check first. Check your oil and make sure it is reading correctly on the dipstick. If it is low then add oil and watch everyday to see if the oil drops. If it is dropping quick enough to notice in a day or two then you have a leak somewhere an need to find that. A pressure test may need to be done as well to make sure oil pressure is high enough.

it means the catalyst is worn out, the efficiency is monitored by sensors, when the Cat falls below a certain reading or "threshold" the code is generating telling u that u need a new catalytic converter.
