1995 Merc Cougar fuel leak :(

Hello all I am new to the site and I am seeking some answers. I own a 1995 cougar xr7 v8 and it appears to be leaking fuel. The leak is coming from the passenger side fuel rail according to my local ford dealer who I had it inspected by. They claimed that they were unable to find the part as it no longer is on production and were also unable to find one used. My question is what other cars aside from the cougar can i snatch a fuel rail off of. Also what years of fords is the style the same.

Thanks, Tyler

Well an obvious direct match is the same year T-Bird. I would give your fuel rail a close inspection, as to where the inlet and outlet is located, the shape of the rest of the rail in general, then find a Crown Victoria, Grand Marquis, or Lincoln Town Car with a 4.6L of the same year or as close as possible, and examine that rail. If the inlet, outlet, and in general matches, it's a direct swap. Definetely do new injector O-Rings (Regular O-rings won't seal well, get the correct ones from Ford or a parts retailer).

'89 - '97 are similar. Can do direct replace with Thunderbirds for sure.

Re: 1995 Merc Cougar fuel leak :(

Just give the AA customer service a buzz tomorrow and check what's covered by Home Start, using possible fuel/oil leak as an example. You can call as an anonymous potential customer if you'd prefer not to give your membership details before finding out the answer. If it's a goer, do a reccy of your car in daylight and call Home Start direct. If it's not covered then you could find out how much their tow service was Vs a local garage. You may still qualify for a free tow to an approved garage, just their man on the road will not be able or covered to tinker roadside
