2005 Mercury Mountaineer shuts off

While driving my Mountaineer just shuts off. You can crank it back up. We have tried different gas and also put injector cleaner in but it still does it. Is intermittent. Don't know when it will do it.

    This problem has baffled the dealer because it is so intermittent. There are no trouble codes. I have had the "flight recorder" installed, but it didn't occur while I had it attached. The conditions for it to occur are this: Ambient temperature over 40 degrees, coming off of a hill. Doesn't happen all of the time. I just knock it up to neutral and restart. Always restarts. I'm thinking a balky MAP sensor. It's driving me crazy and is potentially dangerous.

Could be a number of things and the information is a little vague. Does it do it when cold, warm, after driving for a distance etc. It might pay to have some one run a diagnostic machine on it. The cost for the test could actually save you money. Just make sure they have a good reputation.

Why does my 2005 mountaineer die when I stop or slow?


The stall problem could be a faulty idle air control valve or dirty throttle body. The computer uses the valve to adjust base idle speed depending on the load on the engine.

Shuts off while driving on the highway. I pull over put it in park and it starts right back up


Do you get a trouble indication?
Ford products have Coils On Plugs that are problematic. I have a 2005 Lincoln and had the same problem (only my dash light came on); it cost me $1500 to have all of my COP's replaced. You should get check engine that will tell them which one is bad.
You don't have to put the car in park to reset the system, just put in Neutral, shut engine off, restart, put car in Drive.

You have to have a professional scan tool put on
most vehicles today, to look at the systems data

If I had your truck I would start there

Then I could do nothing without wirng diagrams,
just to see the systems it has & give me a guide
to start some testing

Mountaineer shuts off


it might be a blockage in your fuel lines, this will sometimes make your car go into failsafe, because it knows there is gas in the car but a limited amount reaches the carbarettor, this is also why it will sometimes stop while trying to "rapidly" accelarate ( from a red light )
