Check for spark. If you have spark and fuel, check for compression. You can rent a comression gauge from many auto part stores. Make sure you ask them for the compression specs. A compression test will reveal if there is a physical issue with the engine.

1999 mercury cougar. won't start...cranks...battery ok.

V6 ? 4CYL? Have you verified SPARK? Did anyone check the "fuel pump inertia switch?" Its in the right front kick panel. If it was a "Anti-theft Issue" the light would be on or flashing.
