When driving on the interstate going about 70-80 my car will hop/**** and the rpm jumps up to about 7000. Also when sitting at a stop light, my car will shake really bad and act like it wants to stall....

Interstate problems: Faulty Torque Converter or Transmission Electrical Harness.

The shaking could mean a clogged fuel injector, fuel filter, or a bad spark plug in one or more cylinders. Your local parts house will show you how to troubleshoot it.

Alight i have a 1999 mercury cougar and a light popped on the other day and i have no clue what it means. the light is on the headliner bundle of lights. please help.

If the light on your cougar has a wrench on it then this is your "Interval Maintenance light", it comes on when your car is due for a scheduled maintenance as prescribed in your owners manual (oil changes, transmission fluid, etc). Another light located on the upper cluster is the "Outside Temp Freeze Warning Light", this light looks like a yellow or red snow flake, if this light is yellow it means it's nearly freezing outside (so watch for slippery roads), and if this light turns red it means that it's 32 degrees or lower

Why is the ''snowflake light'' showing up red in my car?

I have a '99 Mercury Cougar & I've been read somewhere that the snowflakes have to do with the outside temp. & traction. I think it's warning you that it may be slippery or icy. I've noticed that when it's +3 to about -2 or -3, the yellow snowflake shows up. Any anything colder than -3 shows the red snowflake. The other lights: the wrench comes up in yellow. That one has always turned on after a certain amount of km's & it's advising you that your car needs a check-up (that's when I know I should look into getting an oil change). You can turn this light off by holding down the two buttons above & below the 'clock' button. Hold them down together for at least 5 seconds & that wrench light should go off. Otherwise, there is a light for checking your breaks (upside down exclamation mark), low windshield fluid. I can't think of any other ones but I hope this helps.
