That usually indicates the check valve has failed. But you could have more parts needing reconditioning or replacement. I had that problem with a 70 I use to have, I replaced the check valve and it fixed the doors closing on acceleration, but over several days of sitting they would open. Good luck fixing it.
P.S. What year is your Cougar?
