What is making my 2000 cougar not start?

I have a 2000 cougar with 125000 miles on it. One day it died on my way home. It was hot and i figured it must have vapor locked. It did this a couple more times and now it won't start. My fiance just replacedthe starter and my battery is only 6 months old. what else could it be?

I WAS DRIVING HOME AND HAD HEATER ON, ALL OF A SUDDEN IT STARTED BLOWING COLD AIR. WHY WOULD THIS HAPPEN? THE NEXT DAY I WAS DRIVING AND THE TEMPERATURE GUAGE STARTED GONG UP....PULLED OVER BEFORE IT GOT...


Check the antifreeze level. It could be low, When the air turns cold all of the sudden there is an air pocket in the cooling system. Watch for coolant leaks and if it continues to get hot replace the thermostat.

Tcar runs good when running but stops and cant get started again runs days or weeks at a time with no problems. battery test good ,alternator is good just cant figure out. car has over a 125000 miles on it...


Check and make sure your temp sensor is working properly. Sometimes this will not allow the right information to get sent to your computer. You can test this with a multimeter if you don't want to risk spending money on a new sensor. You can usually see how to test this if you have a repair manual.

Hello, I bought 1997 merc sable wagon with 125000


Rebuilding the transmission. That's quite a few miles on your transmission and the seals are finally letting go.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad (and expensive) news,

What service / maintainance is necessary or recomended for a 2000 Mustang GT with 125000 miles on it and has had no major maintainance done to it ?


Would be on safe side and go for full service if you have no/little service history. would be fair on a motor thats covered that amount of miles.
