Question about 1997 Mercury Cougar XR7
When i stop at a red light the car seems to hop like it wants to shut off but doesn't. this only happens when im standing at a red light.
when you stop at red you are also pressing the breaks which turn the break light on.
it is possible the lights loads the generator and hence loads the engine.
try to see what happens when you shift to neutral and use the hand-break (no breaks light). does the car hops then?
maybe you need to increase the ideal RPM
