Question about 2002 Mercury Cougar
It can either be the fuel pump or the ignition module. Have someone listen by the fuel tank or take the gas cap off and use a screwdriver to open the metal door under the cap, as you turn the ke foreward, not far enough to crank the engine over but so all the dash lights come on. You should hear the fuel pump turn on for a few seconds. Fuel pumps work then not work then work right before the go out for good.
Ignition modules start to work only while the engine is cold, then eventually the won't work at all.
