What would make the car die when you put it into drive on a 95 Mercury Cougar XR 7 4.6 v8

No many possibilities to list. Engine and transmission problems can cause this. Have to codes read. Or have the car diagnosed. My guess the car is old and tired.

Need torque setting for cylinder head 1995 mercury cougar 3.8

New bolts are recommended, but the following applies.

For 3.8-liter engines manufactured from 1994 until 1995, the cylinder head requires multiple steps in a helical sequence to bolt properly: first to 15 foot-lbs. of torque, then to 29 foot-lbs., and finally to 37 foot-lbs.. Loosen the long bolts to between 29 and 37 foot-lbs. of torque and the short bolts to between 7 and 15 foot-lbs. of torque. Then, tighten each bolt an additional 90 degrees. The last two steps--the loosening and then the 90 degree tightening--should both be performed on each bolt before moving to the next bolt.

Are there torque specs for the transmission pan on a 1993 mercury cougar 3.8 v6

I'm sure that there are torque specs. for this. I just did both pans on my 1999 Mercury Sable with a 3.0 Duratec V6 DOHC with the AX4N transmission and both pans on that are tightened to 7-9 ft.-lbs.
I don't know if this would be the same unless it has an AX4N transmission. I hope this helps.
Good Luck!!!

1994 Cougar XR-7 will not accelerate when full throttle is applied quickly. Instead it bogs as if it is being flooded. If throttle is applied slowly the car will accelerate evenly.

that might be a trans issue-try applying full throttle with the selector in first, see if it still does it-it so, you have an issue with maybe a throttle position sensor (remote possiblilty, it should have thrown a code though)-my guess is trans, and it might be as simple as adjusting the MLPS (manual lever position sensor) located on the side of the trans-they do require replacing sometimes too, as it may be original.

1994 XR-7 Since new the car has always done about 27 MPG now Torq. converter will not lock on the highway with or with out cruise control on, mileage at about 20 MPG. Thinking of replaceing transmission...

Before replacing electronics, try a good healthy trans fluid and filter change. A partially clogged trans filter will increase pressures causing your lock-up converter to disengage.

1993 Mercury Cougar XR-7 V-6, Overheating

Your problem could be the coolant temp sensor, or it could be the gauge itself, but something 2 do is if you can get it to a dealer, or a parts store. If you cant get it there, you can get an OBD I scanner and retrieve the code and know why the check engine light is on, but it could be from any of the sensors on the car, would be best to get it scanned.

!993 Mercury Cougar XR-7 3.6 V6

If you are referring to the Check Engine light then this indicates there is a problem with the emissions system. Have the ECU scanned with an OBD2 scan tool. The fault code that has been set by the ECU will tell you where to look for the problem. If the engine is running fine there is no hurry, but do have this looked into. If you are referring to the oil pressure light stop driving the car until you get this repaired as it may be serious.
