The emissions sticker does not show this hose.
This is a rubber hose that appears to have been attached to a port at some time.

Are you sure that it is a vacuum hose? It could be a breather line for the transmission. Anyway, look around under the hood and there should be a sticker that has an emissions, vacuum line, diagram.

My 1999 Mercury Cougar is reading Bank 1 and Bank 2 lean how am I to fix this problem?


You may have an air or vacuum leak. check all vacuum hoses for loose fitting or split hoses. Another test is to have the engine idling and spray starting fluid or carburetor cleaner around the base of the intake manifold. If there is an air or vacuum leak, the fluid will be sucked into the intake and the engine idle will noticeably increase. If this happens you probably need to change the intake gasket.

If you find no leaks, you should have the fuel pressure tested to see if the fuel pump or fuel filter is causing the lean running.

Why won't my 2000 cougar idol


Cougars have IACV valves (idle air bypass control valves) through with engine gets idle air. Its a valve and opens and closes by a solenoid. Most of the time due to excess carbon it remains stuck closed. or may be faulty. And it wont allow air for idling. Throttle body will be completely closed when you take foot off accelerator, so no air and no idling. Check the image at the bottom to locate IACV valve. You can undo that valve and clean it with WD-40. You can feel the solenoid clicking when you keep your finger on it while starting the car or when you take foot off the accelerater. Other possibilities could be the vacuum hoses. Check and see all plastic vacuum hoses are hooked up and not broken. Checking vacuum hoses resolves most of the issues on cougars.

2002 mercury cougar vacuum line off the top of transmission


The hose connects to the top of the transmission, underneath the car's battery (you'll have to remove the battery to see the connection site). It's important that this hose, once reconnected, does not does not get crimped. If the hose is not free to "breathe" pressure buildup in the transmission can cause fluid to pour out of the fill point (where the dip-stick goes).
