Do you have disk or drum brakes in the rear?, you may need to adjust your drum brakes, take wheel and tire off, spin the drum if it spins more than 11/2 turns your rear brakes need to be adjusted or change, the drum should fit tight, hope this helps ya if not your wheel bearing are probably a gone, .

That could be

- loose wheel nuts
- collapsed rear hub bearing
- worn or faulty rear suspension links behind the hub

Don't drive it until that is fixed. You may need to call a mobile mechanic to the car.

Bad wheel bearing. I do believe yours are pressed in. You can remove the spindle and take it to a shop and have them replace the bearing.

I do Believe that they are 225/65/15's Do you have the Original Tires now???? If so They have the Size right on the Tire. The Letters and Writing are in Black But, If you take a Piece of Chalk and Highlight the Writing you can read it better. The writting is right on the Side of the Tire.

Open the front drivers door... or the passenger side front door... there should be a sticker there indicating correct tire sizes as well as pressures.

Mercury 2001 cougar V6 startor problem


Have the car put up on a lift or jack up and support with jack stands. Loosen the two bolts holding it up. It is located at the rear of the engine close to the transmission on the drivers side. disconnect the wires and mark so when you put it back in you will know where the wires go.
