Question about Mercury Cougar
It needs a gascap. You can get a free scan at Autozone, Advance, or Oreilys. A Code will be set if the cap is loose or missing.
There are other possible reasons for your drivability problems, but get the scan, put on a gascap and fix scan results.

Take the air inlet hose off where it enters the throttle body and take a look at the throttle plates. It is likely that they’re dirty and have a build-up of carbon deposits. That is the most common cause for stalling that we see in the shop for your vehicle. Sometimes all it takes is a good cleaning to cure the stalling problem. There is an idle speed setting on your Jeep, but to check and/or perform this service step requires the use of a computer scan tool for your vehicle. If the cleaning doesn’t help ask a repair facility to check and reset, if needed, the minimum idle speed on your Jeep.

pull one of the plugs out leave the plug wire on it and rest it on something metal on the car and have someone try to turn it over.if no spark can be seen try changing your crankshaft sensor

I would replace that tank (asap), so there can be a cap back on it.
With the cap off, the fuel system can't build up any pressure to hold the gas in the lines.

Might want to chg. the fuel filter, (if you havent already), also do a fuel pressure chk. filter could be pluged up and in turn weaken fuel pump.
