Question about 1999 Mercury Cougar

1 Answer

Cant figure this one out

I have a 99 cougar and it runs fine day to day but if you really get on it when it comes to shift into any gear it slips really bad but if slow down and ease into the gears it runs fine. it had a checkengine light for the range sensor but that has been replaced i have been told that a fualty speed sensor could cuase the problem but im worried for transmisson issues

My 99 cougar stick shift is acting up the Battery


If the alternater output drops when the rpm's increase
you may have a slipping belt. Stop at a parts store
autozone/napa/ or advance. They will put meter on it
for free. Hope this helps.

Slips in drive from a stop,. but is fine in all other gears if you take off in 2 then shift into drive it doesnt slip in drive.


You've got a clutch going out in the trans. will need to have it checked by trans shop. The reason it doesnt slip when in 2 is you are skipping 1st

99 Mercury Cougar has reverse but no forward gears


check the oil lever in the transmisson assuming it's automatic, if the fluid level is fine then with it in gear running and the brake on look to see if the drive shaft is turning, if it is then you have a prboblem with the drive shavft depending on engine size and wheather it's front or rear wheel drive. if it's not turning then you have a transmisson problem. If this is helpful please rate.

Mercury xr7 starts then starts coughing and chocking like not


My cougar does the same, it starts and then about 1 minute later (or so) the check engine light comes on and the car idles really high, with black smoke out the exhaust. It stays in second gear i think and it will not shift out of it. Max speed is 40 mph with the rpms screaming, it will go off after a long time but this is agrivating. I have a 94 mercury cougar xr7 3.8 ltr Any help please?
