How Does Mercury Cougar Alignment Work?

Alignment services involve precise adjustments to your Mercury Cougar’s suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your vehicle. When your car has an alignment service, the individual angles of your tires are adjusted so that they come into contact with the road in just the right way — the way Mercury intended them to. When the system is aligned to Mercury specifications, all four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. Three good things happen as a result: your ride is smoother, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and your suspension system experiences less strain. Before we adjust the alignment of your 1990 Mercury Cougar, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. If needed, we'll adjust your wheel alignment angles to match Mercury recommendations. Plus, we’ll check to make sure your tire pressure is at an optimal level.

When Should I Get Mercury Cougar Wheel Alignment?

It’s wise to have your Mercury Cougar alignment checked (and corrected as needed) roughly every 6,000 miles. Believe it or not, even one misaligned wheel can reduce fuel efficiency, and could cause premature wear on your car if not corrected. You may also want to stop by for an alignment check if you notice any of the following with your 1990 Mercury Cougar: pulling to the left or right, rapid or uneven wear on one or more tires, a steering wheel that feels off center or crooked while driving straight ahead, or tires that squeal frequently. Unfortunately, you won't see any warning lights on your Cougar dashboard if your wheel alignment is off.

Mercury Cougar Alignment Questions

  • Where's the alignment light on my 1990 Mercury Cougar? Pay close attention to changes in your steering. There is no 'alignment light' on your dashboard, so it’s up to you to stay ahead of misalignment. If you notice a change in how your car handles while driving, call on the techs at Firestone Complete Auto Care to check your Cougar alignment.
  • How can I avoid knocking my Mercury Cougar out of alignment? Potholes and uneven roads can knock your car out of alignment, so stay aware of the road ahead and adjust your speed (or avoid these obstacles whenever it’s safely possible).
  • How can I protect new Mercury Cougar tires? Keep new tires in excellent condition with a wheel alignment. Help them wear evenly from the start with a wheel alignment at the time of installation.
  • How frequently should you get a wheel alignment for your Cougar? Generally, it’s wise to have your alignment looked at around every 6,000 miles or 6 months, whichever happens first. You should check your Cougar owner’s manual to verify Mercury’s suggested interval.
  • Do you need an alignment with new Cougar tires? While you don’t necessarily need to get an alignment when putting new tires on your Cougar, it’s still a good idea. Ensuring your wheels are properly aligned can help support optimal handling, tire wear, and fuel efficiency.
