I need this answered real bad. My Alt took a crap today, and i have to get it replaced. I want to get the duralast but they dont show they have one for thew 2001 Cougar even though they have one for the 99 Cougar. I havent actually taken mine out yet, but i am going to tomarrow. I know i can just take it down there and have them check, but i figured someone here would know.
