I have a 2000 Mercury Cougar with about 145k miles.
Today I was driving and when I slowed down to come to a stop it acted as if it wanted to cut off by sputtering. As I got down to about 5-10mph the engine shut off (the radio and everything else was still running) I noticed that as I was slowing down right before it shut off, the RPM was going very low, almost down to zero.
I do have check engine, and low coolant level lights on.
For the check engine there are a few codes.
- Something with the catalytic convertor
- 02 Sensors
- Transmission slippage
- I think there was something else but I forgot.
I do need new motor mounts.
The oil light comes only when I am idle and after driving for a good 5-10min. I changed my oil about a month and a half ago though.
The only time there is issues is upon stopping. Driving and acceleration is fine.
What do you suggest?
