No ,the computer will still see that the sensor is not working. You have to get it scanned to see what code is in the system. Send back the code number and we can try to help.

1999 mercury villager won't pass 1 sensor on smog 02 replaced and ran it for ever after replacing battery. Please help


There can be more than one sensor in the system. But here is what happens when your old sensor goes bad. The fuel mix can go rich and this results in a buildup of soot in the catalytic converter.

Sometimes the catalytic converter can recover over time. There are cheater additives which go in the gas and may help you pass the test.

You need a better diagnosis of your potential problem. The onboard computer in your van will not Code every problem and has to be showing a "check engine" light to display any problem.

However, better Scanners (Some costing thousands) can probe the system and reveal many defects.

New sparkplugs, clean fuel injectors, can help lower emissions. Just remember that an additive which dissolves debris on fuel injectors can also send that debris to your Catalytic converter.

Now as far as running it "forever", you want highway speeds, which in terms of RPM is about 2000 RPM on many vehicles. You can shift out of "overdrive" and this will keep the RPM higher at a slower speed, but it needs to be above 45mph to be effective. Your overdrive does not always kick in below 45, so to make a difference using my tip would require driving above 45.

1999 mercury villager, where is the cam sensor located and how do i change it?


cam sensor is in distributor, not serviceable. 1999 is noted for failing cam sensors. Usually runs good cold, then gets worse after warm till it fails all together.
Buy Rich Porter reman on ebay for $200 to get a good one.

1999 Villager: my 1999 mercury villager wont start,it turns over ...


Probably a bad distributor. The cam sensor and optical sensor are under the slotted wheel and when the bearing goes, it gets brown dust on the optical sensor. Temp fix is to clean the optical sensor, but you will need a reman distributor, $200 on ebay. 1999 was famous for this issue.

any light or switch can be bypassed, but when you go to get the vehicle inspected and they put it on their machine its going to fail. Why not just find out whats causing the problem and fix it.
