Question about 1999 Mercury Cougar
You should check to see if it has spark , pull a plug wire an hold near ground while having someone cranking over the engine . If there is spark spray some carburetor cleaner into the engine an see if it tries to start then ! You could have fuel pump or ignition module problem ! Let me know what you find an I'll walk you through this ! How was it running before it stop ! Any troubles starting , long crank time or did it fire right up ! No check engine light ?

the problem you are discribing would lead me to belive your fuel filter is clogged which is a simple fix 3 dollar part at any part store or on the worse hand your fuel pump itself could be weak you can open the gas tank cover and have another person turn the truck key to the on position without going far enough to start you will hear a faint whining noise if it is going bad or a louder noise if it is fine Good Luck

Sounds like there is a issue with the coil then if there is no sparking. The main thing that goes wrong is the crankshaft position sensor it allows the coils to work properly I would replace the crank sensor I bet that will do the trick!

Have you ran an Oil pressure test? low oil pressure (20lb)or no oil pressure(0lb)and the lifters will not open the valves enough to let fuel in to the cylinder to start your engine!

It is most likely Carbureter Iceing. Most likely the "heat riser" has been disconnected from either end (where it attaches to the Air Cleaner, or where it connects to the Exhaust Manifold.
