Hi! You may have a worn or loose vacuum hose. Please do locate it for if the vacuum hose is loose/worn it can result to this kind of issue during cold start ups and even when hot. Please do check very carefully. Hope this helps and thank you for using FIxYa!

I have a 1997 mercury mountaineer started kind of chugging backfired changed plugs wires and now both coils it pops chugs has no power was running fine then just started this outta the blue need help

Mountaineers are very notorious for poor Timing Chain Systems and it may have slipped a few degrees and this will cause the notorious backfires.
Replace the Timing Chain Guides and re-time it and it will solve the backfire and sluggishness

Its cold and engine will crank but wont start, could the fuel pump went out ?

It could be the fuel pump, but try the battery first, it is less expensive and if that's not the problem you can normally take it back. Then maybe try tune-up if you have not had one recently. These are least expensive options as opposed to replacing a fuel pump.

The governer on these is set to NOT allow a higher rev when car is stopped and not in gear.
Try to change oil viscosity or filter manufacturer.Some filter manufactures put in a bypass valve that kicks in too early.

It sounds like the battery may be going bad since it requires a lot of power to turn the starter, have you had it tested? You can do this at a local auto parts store. Let me know the outcome and whether you have any more questions.
