EGR Code

I had simular problem on 1996 Mercury Marque. Mine was stopped up exhaust port under engine heads = remove heads, clean, replace head gaskets. Also possible that you have a problem with EGR controls, that is due to bad control or vacuum hose off. What does engine analyzer say? Mine was very confusing, listed all kinds of EGR control faults.
Thanks and Good Luck,

How do you adjust the idle speed on a 96 mercury cougar

You can try to turn the screw on the throttle body but it might not work cause the computer will try and take over with the idle air control valve to compensate for it.
