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. It is currently broken down, and I cannot afford the repairs it needs to get it back on the road again. Whether it will ever run again remains to be seen. 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.

How to replace an O2 Sensor and save money.
I show you how to replace your O2 Sensor. This is being performed on a 1997 Chevy Tahoe. Automotive oxygen sensors, colloquially known as O2 sensors, make modern electronic fuel injection and emission control possible. They determine if the air fuel ratio exiting a gas-combustion engine is rich (with unburnt fuel vapor) or lean (with excess oxygen).

1999 Ford Contour Brake and rotor removal
This is a Contour and my neighbor asked me to install brakes and new rotors. In the video you can see that if this were a simple brake job you would remove the tire and use a t45 torx bit, 3/8 drive ratchet,short 3/8 drive extension,pry bar (large screw driver),either a c-clamp or a caliper tool to compress the piston in the caliper.
If you are replacing the rotor you must also have a 15mm socket a breaker bar and some muscle lol. You need these tools to remove the caliper mounting bracket so you can remove the rotor.
If you notice that the rotor in this video was stuck you were absolutely correct. I had to use some PB Blaster and a 4lbs. sledge hammer to remove the rotors on this car. This happens some times and can be avoided by using Antisense on the hub flange where the rotor sits on and the hub that sticks out through the rotor. I didn't show the almost 2 hours of hammering it took to remove the rotor.
Reassembly is reverse order of disasembly.
