MERCURY COUGAR | I’VE BEEN TOLD THAT I NEED TO REPLACE MY HEAD GASKETS. | HILLSIDE,IL | 1993

I’VE BEEN TOLD THAT I NEED TO REPLACE MY HEAD GASKETS. AFTER SPEAKING TO SEVERAL SERVICE STATIONS AND LOOKING THIS UP ON THE WEB, I’VE DISCOVERED THAT THIS IS A COMMON PROBLEM WITH COUGARS AS WELL AS WINDSTARS, MUSTANGS, TAURUS’, SABLES, ETC.
