Hey guys, Iím trying to diagnose what is going on with my
car. The dealer is closed at this hour and the problem started just today.



I was driving and all of a sudden my check engine light pops
on, immediately I begin analyzing every sound and bump my car makes. The car
seems to run fine in 5<sup>th</sup> and 4<sup>th</sup> gear but when Iím in the
lower gears 1 Ė 2 Ė 3 gears it drives fine. But when I push in the clutch to shift
the RPMís Go up to about 3k and then slowly idle down. If I just sit in neutral
and push in the gas the engine goes down back to about 1k, it seems only after I
start in 1<sup>st</sup> gear and specifically when I shift from 2<sup>nd</sup> to
3<sup>rd</sup> gear.



Tomorrow Iíll probably call the dealer and see what their thoughts
are. Any ideas in the mean timeÖ



Oh BTW itís a 2000 Cougar.
