Should be on the passenger side of the car, near the firewall (wall between the engine compartment and the interior). will be connected to a long tube going into the side of the transmission. Most likely has a yellow cap on it.

SOURCE: Where is the transmission fluid drain plug for a 2000 Cougar

Your Ford has no drain plug, to change/drain the trans fluid u must remove the transmission pan, u may be able to lower fluid level with a fluiod siphon pump (rated for oil) through the dipstick tube, harbor freight tools sells a pump for this purpose.

SOURCE: How do I check the clutch fluid to a 1999 Mercury Cougar 4cyl

The brake master cylinder reservoir has a separate chamber and is used to supply the hydraulic clutch system. So make sure master cylinder reservoir is full.

SOURCE: Turn signal stopped working 1990 Mercury Cougar

I had the same problem and the flasher is not located in the fuse box because it is not a normal flasher. the cougar has an electronic flasher unit that is located on the left side of the center console. the best and cheapest place to order a new one is amazon.com. they run about $30-$40

01 mercury cougar lost clear fluid & there is no pressure to gas pedal, not going but starts


Check the transmission, the automatic transmission on the newer (1999+) cougars if develop internal issues and will cause the powerband servo to come out. Look under car near front for a round opening about that will be very shiny (this will be where the fluid came out). If you see this then you'll need to replace transmission, it will be cheaper then rebuilding. I've owned 2 of these cars.

Cougar 2000 leaks transmition fluid through dipstick.


Check the level and make sure it wasn't overfilled. (running, hot and in park) If the level is ok, look for the vent. It should be on top of the trans, maybe by the linkage. It should be covered by either a metal or rubber cap. That may be clogged.

There should be a diagram of how the belt goes on right under the hood, right next to the radiator, if it is gone then go to "autozone.com" and look up the info there.
