1999 Mercury Cougar V6 uncontrolled acceleration
Here is the strange problem that has plagued my car for a while now. I have
replaced the IACV and TPS and it didn't fix it.
EDIT 2: The problem ended up being the TPS wiring rubbing on the water pump
belt. Fixed the frayed wiring and moved it, and it never did this again.
EDIT: I believe I found the problem. One of the bolts holding the EGR to
the UIM was broken off, and was allowing a vacuum leak around the EGR where
it wasn't sealed down tight. I've got a new UIM coming, and will update if
that fixes my problem!

Mercury Cougar - American Muscle Car
An excellent TV show featuring the classic Mercury Cougar. They cover all
the classic years, and talk about all the different engines and option
packages you could get. Only a couple minor mistakes (they say the that
XR-7 package included a 4-speed stick, then show an automatic shifter in
one... derrr) but overall a very nice overview of these cars.
