Question about 2000 Mercury Cougar

1 Answer

I have a year 2000 Mercury Cougar with just 43,000 (honest miles since I am the first and original owner), I just had to replace the Air conditioning core (what ever is connected to the fan speed on the dial for the air conditioner), now I notice a weird oder within the car when I run the AC, could this be due to this new part?

    Hi and thank you for your output, I don't think the mechanic added more freon, but havent asked him, but you got the smell correct for sure, makes me dizzy somewhat, can there be a freon leak perhaps on account of this repair?

  • ceham Sep 13, 2009

    I might just have the name of the item replace wrong (this was done at a sclock job place as I call it and gave no receipt for the completed job), The car went in to check out why the fan speed was stuck on the highest speed (inside the car on the dashboard), in other words, it wouldnt run at all in the slower speeds and just the highest, I saw him working within the car for the most part, underneath the area on the passenger side. I think this Yahoo called this part a core....took $150 bucks from me for this fix. I'll have to ask him if he had to replace any freon. Again, I thank you for all your help.

    does it have a wet concrete smell? Could have just a little too much freon.

When the unit was replaced it wasnt evacuated properly so you will get a cold water smell or an odor of the pag oil

    when the core was replaced the system was open it had to be evacuated and refilled if there is a freon leak there wont be any cold ac and the compressor will start cycling on and off is it cooling

    ok sounds to me like you had a blower motor replaceb the smell could be the break in grease on the back bushing and should not persist for long if you have an electrical smell by all means please go back to the repair facility and have the blower motir rechecked i hope i have been of help sincerely alanwrench

Yu3f-18c868-ba serial number on a mercury cougar 2000. We need the security code to reset the radio and the instructions.


Call your local Mercury or Ford dealer parts department and they will provide you the security unlock code over the phone. Also try looking in the glove box for the original radio code decal, it might still be in there or look in the owners manual for the stereo code written down in the front or back of the book.

At how many miles do I need a tune up?


It depends on the engine you have. If you do not have a 100,000 mile sparkplug then replace plugs every 40,000 to 50,000 miles. Or at 2 to 3 year intervals whichever comes first.

Other maintenence requires shorter times. Oil changes and filters 3000 to 5000 miles. Air filters about 12,000 miles. If you have a distributor cap and rotor about 30,000 to 40,000 miles depending on wear.
Check antifreeze strength, change antifreeze every 3 years. Always have axles and wheel bearings checked at least every 24,000 miles. Lube door hinges annually, hood release, trunklid hinges, etc.
