Question about 2000 Mercury Cougar

My engine light came on. I have a 2000 2.5 liter 6cyl automatic Mercury cougar. We put a code reader on it and the printout has these codes PO708 Transmission Range Sensor Circuit High Input P1702 Transmission Range Sensor Circuit Intermittent P1000 OBD Systems Readiness Test Not Completed I'm just need to know if this will be a costly venture or if it's worth fixing.

If it has to do with the transmission then yes it prolly will be very costly. My best advise to you is to get an est. from a shop an see if its worth the price

You mean the engine block. Depending on the damage, it probably could be welded, but for a 14 yr old car, it may be cheaper to buy a used engine complete.

Well code 208 is for a problem with the fuel injector for cylinder number 8.
But a 2000 Mercury Cougar does not have an 8 cylinder engine.

2000 mercury cougar will not start

If it is getting spark I will assume the timing belt is working.
You say the fuel pump is good, so what is the fuel pressure at the rail ?
Are the spark plugs wet or dry ? Can you get it to try to start by using starting fluid ?
You may have to get someone to check the computer for trouble codes which requires a scanner or code reader.

Using a code reader (OBDII), clear the codes.

Without an OBDII reader, just disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 minutes, then reconnect.

Engine light comes on and stays on 2000 mercury cougar

Retrieve fault codes using a diagnostic scan tool. This will tell you what exactly the problem is. You either have to go to a dealer or a mechanic who has the scan tool.

My check engine light blinks for my mercury cougar at idle at every stop light, stop sign, everything as soon as i stop or put it in park it starts blinking whats wrong?

Usually when your check engine like is blinking it means you have a miss fire. You can go to Auto Zone and have them pull the codes and it will tell you what cylinder is misfiring. ( if you want to only fix that one miss).
