Thinking here honest i am but - iam thinking that whoever done this work for you has taken money under false pretences as they didnt cure the problem and they should have known what was wrong before they tampered with this vehicle,now a europeon mechanic who know nothing about these cars so try a direct a question to emmisionwiz as hes a ford mechanic so he should have a better idea than me on this but have you re-gassed the AC by anychance recently and put too much gas in the system as this will cause the vehicle to **** but other than that ni idea without my head under the bonnet

SOURCE: 2005 Mercury Mountaineer shuts off

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.

SOURCE: How do you access the spark plugs 2002 mercury mountaineer

IIRC these are a coil over design. meaning the coil is over the plug. the coil should have one 8mm bolt holding it on the lower intake manifold. remove the coild to get to the spark plugs. look by the fuel injectors, coil should be just next to it or very close. coil usually says motorcraft on it and circle in design.

good luck

Check the coil out put.
Loosen the wires from the plugs with the engine off then find some plastic plyers or an insulated tool to remove the wire without getting shocked.
Start the car and one by one remove and replace each wire to see which one does not make a difference in the way the engine runs. Thats the one that probably has a bad coil.

It could be a throttle position sensor, if it consistently rev's after 30 min, explain that to the shop, bigger shops or dealers usually have more advanced diagnostic equipment, they could hook up your car and let it run for over 30min to see what is going on... unfortunately, it will not be a free service, but some places will apply the testing fee to the repair cost if you repair it at their shop

Misfire on 2 and 5

Hi Paula,

You didn't mention if you changed the plug wires.

You mentioned replacing the camshaft sensor. Have you checked the Crankshaft Position Sensor? Or the Mass Air Flow Sensor (may need cleaning)? Or the Throttle Position Sensor?

I have a 2000 mercury cougar that is not getting any spark. I changed the coil, crank and cam sensors. The hot wire to the coil is hot when the key is turned, but no spark is getting to the plugs.

You need to run the OBD2 Diagnostics. You will need to have someone hook up a scanner to the vehicle and retrieve the codes. This is the best place to start.

Upon acceleration the car jerks then smooths out under heavy acceleration

Check engine light on? Most problem is spark plug wire breaking down. Replace spark plugs and wires.
