Hi everyone, I have a 99 cougar v6 70.000 miles
here in New York temperatures had only reach -10 to 20, for the past 2 day's.
I am having serious problems with my cat...I try every single thing I read here in this forum, but nothing
the cat would not start.
When I turn the key on , the only thing; is a knocking noise from the engine, I have full power ( everything electrical works :fuel pump, lights etc).
but the engine don't start.
this only happens when the temperatures are extremely cold (-10 to 20).
If the temperature is 30 or above I have no problem.
I don't know what to do..............HELP!

It sounds like you have a weak battery. When you turn the key, you just hear a "click, click, click" noise right? That would be it! Just get a new one and you should be good to go... But make sure that you have you alternator tested as well. Autozone will do it for free.
