I would have the transmission fluid and filter replaced and have the trans flushed at the same time if you haven't done so in some time. Another thing to do is take it to an auto parts chain store where they will do a diagnostic scan for free and see if any codes are present.

When driving my 99 cougar and shifting into neutral at a stop sign/stop light my car remains at high idle and grinds teeth when I put it back in first. What could be the problem?


Sounds like the gearbox. But the test is this: Engage 1st and start slowly releasing the clutch pedal DONT HIT THE GAS. The engine should gradually fade out and bog down when the pedal is completely released. If the engine just bogs down at some point, or the fading is not gradual, the clutch is damaged. If you hear grinding its the gearbox.

The engine light on my 96 merc cougar XR7 is on. Car shakes bad when i accelerate and engine light begins to blink. I'm embaressed to say my engine light has been on for sometime but was told it c


The check engine light needs to be addressed. Yes it could be a sensor but you need to know.
The light blinking means the problem is serious, such as a dead miss on one or more cylinders. The light being on means something is happening with the engine performance that could damage the catalytic converter.
Get the computer scanned - most auto parts stores will do it for free in hopes of selling you some parts. Once you have the codes research them online or here.

Sounds like a vacuume leak, use some carb cleaner in a spray can and gently spray the engine. When you find the leak the engine will stumble, check in that area for the leak.

Normally you put a floor jack under the engine front or flywheel with a 2x6 cushion board attached and jack it up an inch or so to releave the pressure on the motor mount. Then with mechanic tools and wrenchs remove and replace the motor mount.

Take it to OReily or Advanced Auto Parts. They check the light for free by analyser. Mine was just a dirty gas cap that was setting off light for over 6 months. Give it a try-it's free.
