Hey guys, My wife has an 02 cougar with the DOHC 2.5 in it. It's an auto. We just got her a new civic (wanted something four door) and we want to sell the Cougar but just in the last month it started having an issue. The best way for me to describe it is this: If I am going down the road at about 45mph, maybe 1800-2000 rpm and try to slowly accelerate up to 55 (like trying to slowly do it without making the car downshift) it will run like GARBAGE, bucking and missing and stuttering and such. Then if I just hammer the gas to make it shift it will haul right up to the end of the gear with no hesitation. Also if I am sitting still sometimes it just misses here and there, but it is WAY more noticeable when it does like I described above. Does anyone have any ideas? I changed the plugs. The old ones looked a little rough, they were bosch platinum +2s, I put in the recommended platinum autolites with the recommended gap and it's still doing it. Maybe I need new wires or a new coil pack? Any ideas? Thanks a lot! I need to get this car fixed and sold.
