Try spraying starting fluid in the throttle body. If it starts for a few seconds, it's a fuel issue. If not, it's an electrical issue.

I have a 99 mercury cougar. the fuel pump has just been changed, the filter, the lines. when all that got done it started like there was never a problem. went out about 3 hours later, and it will crank and...


Pull the plugs,see if they are black. To much gas. replace the fuel pressure regulator. If white, not enough fuel. Check the fuel filter, if dirty or rust colored replace the tank, pump and filter again.

Why doesnt gas gauge for 1999 mercury cougar not work


first check the red wire going to the wire clip at top of tank if it shows as hot then either the float is sticking or the sending unit is bad on the pump. if its bad you half to replace the fuel pump or if hot line is not hot then check the fuse box under the hood for blown fuse.

1997 cougar mercury engine wont start only if i pour gas into top of engine


Clogged fuel filter. Do you hear the whine of the fuel pump when you move the key to start in the ignition? If not maybe the fuse.

Engine acted like it was going to stall, then tachometer(rpm) and speedometer jumped up high, gas gauge dropped to empty level though there was half tank of gas acted like it wasn't getting gas pumped gas...


Ignition or fuel problem probably . When you turn the key to start does the engine spin ? Crank no start or nothing happens NO CRANK - NO START ?
If the engine spins an does not start an run you need to test to see what's missing Spark or fuel . Pull a spark plug wire off a spark plug an stick a screw driver in the end an hold it near ground (metal) and have someone try to start the vehicle ! Is there spark ? Spray starting fluid into the engine , does it start then ?

Fuel pump


The fuel pump is in the gas tank.
The fuel filter is under the car or behind the engine in the fuel line.

Where is the fuel pump on 1996 mercury cougar xr7 with 4.6 v8


The fuelpump is located inside the gas tank, you will need to drop the tank and remove the pump from the top. also make sure to install new fuel filter.

2004 z71 tahoe when the gas gauge is at a quarter of a tank it won't crank. It acts like it is empty with gas.


Check your fuel filter if it needs replacement. Empty it out then connect it back. Try to start it again. Inspect the fuel filter if it filled with gasoline. Check if there is noise at the fuel tank to check if the pump is working. If it did not, inspect the fuse for your fuel pump and the relay. If both are good you may connect the fuel pump directly to the battery to see if it works. It may be a bad wiring.

My 99 mercury cougar v6 is stuttter when i drive it will shut off while driving and the car acts like there is no gas in it pass a 1/4 of a tank what is this?


I had the same problem, but the problem didn't start until winter when it got below 0 degrees celcius. it would almost bronco jump and stall at stop lights, (almost rear ended a few people...not safe at all) and then when i'd start it up, i'd rev it and it would stall...but still starting again everytime.. it turned out that.this car is really good and developing condensation in the fuel line/tank...I went and bought a 2 dollar bottle of gas-line antifreeze (any gas station) put it in with the gas and filled 'er up with a tank of premium (cause it burns hotter) and the problem was solved almost instantly. (after about 20 minutes of driving) it saved me from having to get my entire pump replaced...try that out..if it is only since winter started(i dunno where u are) it could very well be your problem.

Engine won't start, turns over, but no fuel


I have a similar problem with my 99 cougar. It will start when I spray starting fluid in the intake and I have gas at the test point but it doesn't seem to make it to the injectors.
