Tune Into Your Mercury Cougar

Is it time for an engine tune-up? If you're the type of driver who waits for something to go wrong with your vehicle, it could be time for a new way of doing things, especially if you want your 1987 Mercury Cougar’s engine to last for a long time. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your Cougar’s engine. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run efficiently, which can lead to lower emission levels and better fuel economy. When you follow the guidelines specified by Mercury for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you invest in your Cougar's long-term health and engine performance.

Questions About 1987 Mercury Cougar Engine Tune-Ups

  • What happens if my Mercury Cougar spark plugs fail? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Spark plugs are small but mighty. The spark of electricity that the plug emits across a small gap creates the ignition for the combustion needed to start your car. Without that spark, your car won't start.
  • What should I do if I see leaks under my Cougar? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Mercury Cougar. It could signal a coolant leak, brake fluid leak, or an oil leak. Let any one of these leaks linger and it could cause engine damage.
  • What do hard starts and stops do to my Cougar engine? Hard starts and stops put extra wear and tear on engine components. Smooth, gradual starts and stops, on the other hand, are a great way to help your engine run better. They can also help maximize your fuel economy.
