SOURCE: 2000 mercury cougar wont start

what is anti-theft light doing? It should come on solid for about 2 sec after you turn the key on then turn off. If it is flashing after this then it is not seeing the computer chip in the key and you have a PATS problem.

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: 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.
