Question about 1997 Mercury Mountaineer
I had this problem last winter, but was usually when it was way below zero. I changed the spark plugs and didnt have the problem the rest of last winter, also there is a new starter(aug 08). Now the past two morning, the nights have gotten down to about 35 degrees here in Illinois and now it wont start. It sounds like its out of gas. Yesterday we left the hood open for a little in sun and then it started and continued to start the rest of the day and night. Now again today, back to the same thing, wont start. HELP ME!!! :)
Have the battery checked. Above 32 degrees you might have enough juice to start it but with lower temperatures it really strains the battery. Think simple. Good luck
