The Cougar uses the same platform as the Contour so it should be like it is on my Contour. Remove the rear seat bottom and you'll see a cover in the floor. Remove that cover and you'll be able to see the top of the fuel tank. You'll need to remove the lines coming out of the top and use a punch with a hammer to rotate that locking ring. Once you remove the ring you can pull the pump module out of the tank. Be careful not to bend the fuel level float. You'll be able to see how to get to the pump once the module is out. Just take the cover off and put the new pump in the module and re-install.

It’s hard to explain. What I can tell you is that it’s a vacuum hose! Bring it back to have them to connect it. If he try’s to charge you he is not reputable

Most likely you have a broken belt. As a result the AC compressor is not turning and more importantly, neither is the water pump. Replacing the belt is easy but why it broke is another question. Might have just worn out but If I was a betting man, I'd bet the water pump is seized and will have to be replaced. Don't drive the car more than a couple of minutes before having this checked out.

Suggest obtain a good volt/ohm meter and trace out your circuits. Sounds like a loose connection or broken wire.
Using the Volt/ohm meter will help you locate the problem. Then replace the bad part(s).
Remember to disconnect the battery before you make electrical system repairs. Follow the shop manual steps to avoid computer issues.

That is not supposed to happen. Oil being sucked into the intake manifold. Ever. You have something hooked up wrong or not even hooked up. Be sure the line from the PCV in the valve cover is hooked to the breather case, NOT vacuum fitting on the carb. Run a full breather also, nothing missing.

I guess the first question is, do you need this? Your car is probably too old to have the LATCH system or the locking seat belt. The adapter that is provided is to lock the seatbelt to keep constant tension on the seatbelt when extended over the child in a booster seat. Is this the adapter you are trying to use?
