Take it back to the shop that repaired it. They should repair it under warranty.

    Took it to the transmission shop. Transmission is good. The car hasn't jerked at all. He did tell me have my front strut looked at.

    I've seen struts do some strange stuff but jerking isn't one of them, The struts are inside the springs you should be able to see them over the top of the tire if you can see them have someone (heavy) bounce the front of the car while you watch to see if the struts are moving in their mounts indicating bad struts

SOURCE: 2001 mercury cougar steering wheel?

Don't listen to that guy!!!! you need to take the plastic cover behind the steering wheel. there are two bolts holding the air bag in t30 (torx) then the air bag falls right off. then the steering wheel is held in by a 15 mm head bolt.
Warning: make sure battery is disconnected for at least 30 min before you mess with the air bag connector

SOURCE: wont hold idle will start with foot depressing gas pedal will run with foot on gas but stalls when foot removed

Check and clean Idle air control valve. Make sure its responding to signal as well. Also make sure ther are no vacuum hoses disconnected. This may not be a "cure" but it's a good place to start.

Using a ball point pen or similar item as an unlocking lever, push forward and hold in position.

I had the same kind of problem and I ended up solving it by actually checking for recalls for the 2000 Cougar and when you do, you'll see that there is a fuel pump recall. I dont' know if you've already done this but I figured i'd post this and try and help out!

Much luck

EIther the IAC or throttle postion sensor is dirty or faulty. Or leaky vacuum hose somewhere. As long as it is not missing and running weird, then you may have bad coil packs.
You can go to autozone.com and register for free online repair manual for your vehicles if you need it.

01 mercury cougar lost clear fluid & there is no pressure to gas pedal, not going but starts


Check the transmission, the automatic transmission on the newer (1999+) cougars if develop internal issues and will cause the powerband servo to come out. Look under car near front for a round opening about that will be very shiny (this will be where the fluid came out). If you see this then you'll need to replace transmission, it will be cheaper then rebuilding. I've owned 2 of these cars.

check your transmission fluid levels and add if low..also using a white paper towel, wipe some fluid off the stick and see if any contamination is present like blackened gunk and aluminum shavings..this is a sign that the fluid and filter need changed..

Golf SE 1.8l 1781 cc auto, constant jerking. Have tried all possibles suggestions but still not fixed


try this to see if it gets any better,from stop.put into drive and let car accelerate without gas(do not touch gas pedal) around 30/35 mph is about right.STOP.then use 1/3rd gas(keep foot still)and do same(around 60/70 mph)STOP. then foot to floor and go to max legal speed.then back off to 1/3rd pedal.then stop.you have just reset computerised gearbox settings.(only use 1/3rd gas for about 250miles,and you will feel the difference(boring)but saves you a fortune in fuel costs.and if you still have problem put on diagnostic to check out.

First, disconnect neg battery cable 10 minutes and reattach to clear codes.
Lean condition means it is not getting same fuel as other side of engine.
Since you had it scanned before, try Autozone to see if new results.
You might try a TPS switch which regulates spark and fuel feed. At lower speeds EGR starts to open-you should have code for a problem there.

My son has a 2001 Mercury Cougar and it has a slight hesitation problem when you ease on to the accelerator starting off and also at certain speeds (low rpm's). We changed the air filter, plugs and plug...


I assume the check engine light is not on. I suspect you may have a slight vacuum leak, especially if it idles a little rough. Check all under hood vacuum hoses for cracks and make sure they are all connected.I also highly recommend you replace the fuel filter if you have no done so.
