I have a 97 Cougar XR7.V6.100,000 miles. In Dec. I had to get a longblock put in, because of bad gasket and bad rod and bad trouble. It ran good for one day. There was extreme shaking and not wanting to move. So I went to "Firestone". The codes showed misfire on 3 and 5 so they said I needed an ignition coil and plug wires. Okay did that.$475.00. The car started shaking again. Light again came on. Same code as before (P0352). "Firestone" wasn't able to find out what the problem was because they said it had to be doing it at the time they checked the car. I have been there approx. 10 times in the last two months, and then yesterday it was worse so I got them to actually look at the car. They said the coil they put in had a weak spark. Okay. They replaced that ignition coil with another. Within one hour the car was shaking severely, light was on again. Next day I head back to "Firestone" (after 4 hours) they tell me they finally got it to mess up and they said "the PCM is losing its ground" and I will need to replace the PCM. Thats $590.00 I don't have. Shoot I'm still paying off the $475 PLease help with any info.
have the same problem?
