Did you ever figure out your problem? I am having a similar problem. My car when started the other day ran rough. I turned it off and it would not start again. changed the fuel pump and it ran great for 4 days until I filled it up with gas. now it is doing the same thing and we tested the old fuel pump last night and it works fine. so it was not the fuel pump to begin with. And we have no idea what it could be.

Your photo link does not work (at least for me).
Try again. Not sure how it works here, but there is a "IMG" button in the bottom. Or upload photos to photobucket or similar free web hosting side then post the link to it here.
I have a ton of Cougar stuff that goes to the junkyard very soon.

Hey folks any help would be great. I have an 02 cougar C2 edition v6 I am replacing the fuel pump for the 4th time in a year. Any ideas what could be causing it.

If you haven't already done it, I would:
1. Switch to a different gas station.
2. Switch to a different parts store.
3. Switch mechanic tech.
4. Pour a bottle of Seafoam into your gas tank with EVERY OTHER gas fillup.
Outside of those items, perhaps there is some type of electrical issue? The Fuel pump is such an item that it is somewhat rare to need replacement so often.
Hope this helps.

That fuel pump was a subject to recall back then. You may be buying the defective pumps from resellers. Go to a Mercury dealer for the new pump. If that car hasn't had the recall you might get it free. Otherwise you will be sure to get the better pump. It might be a bit more expensive but it will work.
