Ok , I'd like to help you out but nothing is listed here . I remember from your original post that you wanted to replace the PCM, BCM and the GEM . If you could list the problems that you are having we mite be able to help you out . I can't see all those modules being bad . Have you had the modules checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble code's ? Do you know what DTC'S are ? Your Cougar doesn't have a BCM , Just a GEM - generic electronic control module . This is Ford , Mercury , lincoln's BCM . List the problems you are having . Could have a communication between control modules .

I have a 2000 Nissan xterra sport it can crank but it won't start

You'll need to figure out if it is lack of spark or fuel to know where to begin testing.

My 2004 Alero has a problem when it rains. It won't start after it was rained and it seems to me that something is getting wet under the hood and causing this that I have to let it sit after it rains,...

I doubt anything is getting wet, but you could be right on a bad connection. You could have enough humidity in the air after a rain to cause a weak connection to fail completely. It could also be a faulty relay.
Someone would need to figure out if you are lacking spark to the plugs or fuel pressure when it fails to start, then track down why.

2001 Lincoln ls v8 generator / alternator doesnt charge battery

Did you.. mark any of the parts that were removed so you would put them back on properly? There are only two plugs and the battery connector that hooks up to it. Do you have a regulator, either external or internal? If so, have that tested.

Severe engine clunking after oil change

Appearently Mr Lube is either going to end up fixing your car. I dont know what could have happend other than maybe they put the wrong type of oil back in it. I would definately get ahold of some of the higher ups at Mr Lube and "Ensure" they put your car back the way it was when it arrived there. There is no purely coincidence about it. They were the last ones to touch it. They will be the first ones to fix it. Make sure you are very firm with them, and keep track of names/dates/events as this important if you need to consult an attorney because of their negligence. Hope this gives you some direction, Thanks for using FixYa!

Engine light just came on

Did you have the ECU scanned for codes? I can't even begin to tell you where to start if you don't have the codes that tripped the warning light, or at least some information on what you may have noticed about its driving habits before and after it came on. What year is the car? That makes a big difference in diagnosing it. So does the choice of engine, transmission, and sometimes trim level. Much, much more information is needed before any semblance of an answer can be attempted.
