99-2000 cougar

Asked by Sep 25, 2016 at 03:25 AM about the 2000 Mercury Cougar 2 Dr V6 Hatchback

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So I swapped a engine and transmission from a 99
cougar in to a 2000 I made all the necessary
changes to the wiring for the 2000 computer from
the 99 the issue that I have run into it there was a
sensor that was not on the 99 transmission case
located just off the side of the differential it's pre-
drilled into the side of the 99 case I just want to
know if anybody can tell me if that is plugged or an
unfinished drill hole with in the case so I know if I
can pull the plug or if I have to pull the motor and
transmission to swap the entire transmission case

Automatic or manual?


If auto, the Cougar uses a CD4E. That would be a good question to ask your local transmission shop, or ask in a Cougar forum from someone who knows the difference. I would have thought it would be the same myself.
