I want to replace my engine a 3.8 v6 in a 95 Mercury Cougar XR7 with any other than one from Ford

Asked by Nov 21, 2015 at 05:47 PM about the 1995 Mercury Cougar 2 Dr XR7 Coupe

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The 3.8 is a very good engine. The big problem with them was the poorly designed head gaskets. Once the head gaskets are replaced with properly designed gaskets the 3.8 will last a good long time.
