Question about 2000 Mercury Cougar
Look at your receipts and see if you paid for a Throttle Position Sensor. This part is held on by only 2 screws and has 1 Electric plug on it. It is located on a part they call an Airhorn which is where all the plastic ductwork comes from the Air Filter.
Go to Autozone or Oreillys Auto parts where they will scan your vehicle for free. This scan may indicate the problem on your car. Compare that scan with your old receipts and see if a bad part was installed on your vehicle. You may have a Warranty on the parts you already installed.
The part I recommend usually costs between $20 and $30 dollars There is only slight skill needed to line up a groove on the part with a slotted edge on the mating surface of your car. The job of the TPS is to act like a throttle and set the fuel and timing to match. It takes the place of a carburetor and does a little more.
When you ask for the scan ask if they will also check the Starter and charging system.
