Re: need info !! help with cougar

Don't know if you found what your problem is, but my son has a 2000 Cougar he was having similar problems with. In addition to not starting, when he did get it started, he'd drive a little ways and it would stall, then not start. Had to have it towed a couple of times.

It took the Ford dealer forever to figure it out. The problem was the fuel filter. It wasn't the manufactor's. Once they replaced it with the manufactor's fuel filter, he hasn't had any problems with it since. That was about 2 years ago.

Re: need info !! help with cougar

Try getting a fuel pump recall. It's free. (I've had it done)

Also, check out newcougar.org. FastCougar.com is no more, NewCougar.org is the updated site.
