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!
Just a little 35-60 mph run in my 1999 mercury cougar
Title says it, I went out last night and did a few runs with a real digital
camera, so the quality is much better. I am going to get the cold air
installed today and do a few more runs tonight. Its going to be under
20deg, so it will be a good night for it. Walk around soon to come.
Video tribute to my 1999 Mercury Cougar
7 years ago today I brought home what has turned into a very important
piece of my life. This car has helped me mature as a human being, has given
me some of the happiest times of my life, and helped me meet some wonderful
friends along the journey. I decided to put this video together so that
others can take the journey of the past 7 years with me, and experience
some of the highs and lows I have gone through. 99% of the work that has
ever been done to this car has been done with my own two hands and with the
help of some very talented friends. In the past 7 years, I have probably
put enough money into this car to have bought a new one perhaps multiple
times over. I wouldn't trade the past 7 years for the world, they have been
an amazing part of who I am today.

1999 Mercury Cougar 0-60
This is me doing a 0-60 run in my 1999 mercury cougar. This is the stock
2.5 v6 with a 5 speed manual. The only upgrades are a short ram intake,
double platinum plugs, and muffler delete with straight pipe out the back
and a cherry bomb in place of the resonator. Its all stock for now. turbo is soon to come, just need a few more
parts. I did not do a high rpm launch because it was raining, I was lucky
to get traction in all of these gears. Right after the video I did it
again, and could not grip the road to save my life. Sorry about the
quality blackberry camera. Let me know what you think.
