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?

I got a 95 mercury cougar xr7 v8 and for some reason first gear has to reach 4000 rpm before it wants to shift out of first. I replaced the transmission filter and replaced the fluids but still acting the...


Changing fluid is just that

Old out, new in,nothing what so ever to
do with fixing anything

If a trans slips,then the new fluid makes
it worse or not useable

May be time for a rebuild

Could clean the valve body or replace
hardened servos,but I doubt you'll find
a solution

Banging when transmission shifts


i would start by checking mthe engine and transmission mounts.do this by placing the veh in gear and firmly step on the brake.with the hood open watch the engine for movement while applying a slight amount of throttle.if the engine moves a lot then there is a broken mount.

Hi, I have a 1999 Mercury Villager with the 3.3 Litre Nissan motor. Just recently my cousin replaced the timing belt, and distributor. When we got the van back it was having transmission problems. When you...


I would start by making sure the Trans Fluid level is correct. If the level is good, it sounds like your internal pressures are leaking down, and that is why it slips out of gear. Which means you have internal trans issue which would require the trans to be most likely removed and repaired.

Thanks Jay!

I have a 97 merc cougar xr7 4.6 v8 I had a weird vibrating hesitation while accelerating thru the gears. It feels like it's almost running on 7 cylinders. I opened the hood and manually reved the engine...


i've been telling people exhaust leak for their problems all night... and you know what... i think it's an exhaust leak =)

seriously check everything from the block to the manifold and look for anything not connected. If you can smell strong exhaust under the hood as opposed to standing behind the car, or if your air filter get dirty incredibly fast, or if your performance degrades (generally cuz i know cars are touchy and weird) as your foot pushes on the gas (not necessarily higher rpm, but actually burning more gas) particularly when it gets hot, that really might be it.

Car will not shift into gear


Sounds like a linkage/cable to me. Disconnect the linkage at the transmission and move the shift actuator by hand to see if there is the same things happening. Don't try to do this with the engine running unless someone is holding the brake inside the car.

89 mercury sable not shifting


It is definitely not your catalytic converter since that is a part on your exhaust used to burn off any fuel that wasn't ignited in the engine.

Are you able to change the gears using the 1 and 2 on the shifter?

If not your transmission is most likely toast and you should get it replaced.

If you are able to, it is a problem with your computer and you will need to have it re-programmed.

Either way you should have your mechanic service it as soon as possible.
