Question about 1993 Mercury Villager

1 Answer

93 Villager "manual" code read procedure

Check engine light comes on for several minutes then is off for several minutes or 200 miles. How do I "read" the codes manually. I have the codes, just can't find out how to get them. Service manual, Ford CD with all manuals, internet, parts stores are all no help. The only tester I can buy sells for $600 and up(used). Looks like the connector is below the fuse block (left of steering wheel). any help would be appreciated.
thanks Ed

This info is in the PS/ED Manual. (Powertrain Controls/Emissions Diagnostics).

You should just go to a dealer and have him run scan and give you the codes. It should cost about $75. Or, call your local parts stores and find one that will run the codes for free.

A check engine light on staedy just means you have an emissions failure. Not a big deal.
If it flashes, that is a big deal.

How reset check engine light


The easiest way to reset a check engine light on almost any modern car is to disconnect the battery wait five minutes and connect it back up. This will not tell you why the check engine light came on. For that you need a ODBII scanner, but if the issue was a gas cap left off and you have fixed that, then check engine the light should go off. I have found that many auto parts stores will read your car's ODBII codes for free.

The first thing you have not checked is fuel pressure.
The pressure could be low, or the fuel filter could be clogged.
It takes more fuel to run the engine in the first 5 minutes until it warms up than under normal conditions.
The codes mean the sensors are not giving the computer the readings they should, but it does not always mean the sensors are faulty.
If the engine is running rough, or the fuel mixture is lean, the sensors will show that.
Code 44 is O2 sensor reading lean which may be true.
Code 33 is MAP sensor reading low vac which may also be true.
Another possible cause is the coolant temp sensor may not be telling the computer the right thing. If it tells the computer the coolant is 200 degrees and the engine is cold, you won't get enough fuel thru the injectors.

We have changed 2 o2 sensors on our mercury villager 2001 but when checking computer the codes p138 and p139 still come up


Check the electrical connectors which connect to the O2 sensors for corrosion and improperly high resistance.

93 mercury villager check engin light comes on for 2 days then off for a day then back on i dont know where to plug in my scanner


I too have a 93 Villager. Recently the check engine light came on especially on the highway cruising speed and it turned out to be caused by clugged EGR. My mechanic cleaned up the carbon build-up ( not replace EGR) from all those 170K miles and it seems to fix the problem. He charged me $150 for the labor only. Also the gas mileage seems to improved a bit as well.

1995 Villager Engine light is on


you may have a broken crankshaft snout.This was a common problem on 93-95 Villagers if customer replaced a/c belt and overtightened the belt tensioner.

Did you ecently have the belt changed?
Also, remove distributor cap and rotor ( 1 screw) and slotted plate/ Look for brown dust on optical sensors. If yes clean them and see if van starts. If it starts you will need a new distributor (ebay $200) as the bearing is going.

Check engine light for a 1995 Mercury Villager is on


Couple of suggestions;

Phone around to some car repair places and see if they have an instrument to read/clear the codes from your '95 Villager. Some shops still have and use them.

Chances are you might need a new BPT hose. This is a very easy and inexpensive fix. My check engine light was on for about 75,000 km before I replaced the BPT hose and since then the check engine light has never come on again.

The Villager is still going strong at 375,000 km.

First, the CEL light on is not a biggie. It just means you are not meeting emmisions. If it is flashing, then worry.
