Asked by tiffuhnee Jun 07, 2011 at 08:47 PM about the 1999 Mercury Cougar 2 Dr V6 Hatchback

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

We have replaced the alternator, coil pack, crank sensor, fuel pump. Its getting fuel and it is turning over great but it doesnt fire. Went to auto zone and the coil pack is good. There is fire going to the coil pack but it's just not coming out. So, why is the car not starting? I'm so frustrated!
