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.

2001 Mercury Cougar V6 Start Up, Exhaust, and In Depth Tour
In this video I give a full in depth tour of the 2001 Mercury Cougar V6. I
take viewers on a close look through the interior and exterior of this car
while showing details, over viewing of features, and noting unique styling
cues to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine and the details of it,
start it up and see how it sounds under acceleration. A thorough
tour/review of this car designed to give others a greater overall
appreciation of the vehicle.

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!

In this video, Don does a detailed inspection on a 1967 Mercury Cougar XR-7
to show some of the things you should look for when buying one of these
classic cars. Some of the insight here can potentially save you hundreds,
even thousands, when you go to negotiate with a seller. Also, it will help
those of you trying to sell, to more accurately advertise the strengths and
weaknesses of your car.
