    There hasn't been a Cougar with a carburetor since about 1985...

    Check your transmission fluid.

    lmao okay...i checked it earlier and it was good... would the engine oil have anything to do with it? or maybe even the sparkplugs?

    MJ it could be almost anything. We really need more information. I wouldn't expect a CEL to be able to tell me what's going on anyway in this case.

    First, have you had any moosing noises? Those are the usual signs of an IAC that's dying, and if your engine can't get any air at idle, it will stall. I doubt this is the problem but since IACs on our cars are known to fail it seems like a reasonable place to start.

    The other two areas to consider are fuel delivery (how is your fuel filter?) and spark (have you had any misfires or anything like that lately?).
    1999 Cougar, Laser Red, 3.0L V6, MTX (a lot more fun)
    2014 Ram 2500 Big Horn 6.7L Diesel (Towzilla)
    2012 Honda Accord V6, ATX (daily)
