Guessing the flat belt tensioner is worn and needs replacement~http://www.new-part.com/product/mercury-cougar-ford-escape- acc-belt-tensioner-assy-gates-1f1z-6b209aa?gclid=CJn8- OX3qLsCFSho7AodYXQAuQ

the belt too~ http://www.stockwiseauto.com/product_info.php/products_id/79313/fit_id/102 27/Year/2001/Make/Mercury/Model/Cougar/source/googleps? gclid=CNmT17j4qLsCFaHm7AodCXsAAw

quite surprised you did not see the pool of coolant that came out of the "weep hole" on the front of the waterpump~ did you notice a reduced coolant level?

this belt drives the alternator too~
