    I've got the same problem with my 1998 Villager. I've had the thermostat replaced and the radiator flushed, but I'm still having issues.

    I also hear a "chirping noise" sometimes, and I had belts checked as well with no luck.......

    Let me know if you get an answer. I live in Ohio and I'm freezing!

You have air trapped in the engine. very common. park van uphill, fill radiator & reservoir, turn on heater, leave cap loose. wait for engine to warm up to burp air.

Could be a thermostat that is stuck open .Does your temp gauge read as normal if not replace your thermostat and all should be well again.

I have 1999 mercury villager i replaced water pump thermostat still over heats was wondering if it could be the heater core cause i dont have heat in my van and the temp in my van gets up to the red

Try chemical flush on radiator, be sour hoses are clean. After you flush it, warm it up remove the cap and see if the fluid is circulating.

I have a 1993 mercury villager my o2 sensor has 2 blues a white and a black and the wiring on the van has a black red and white and i need to know what way to wire them

Sounds like the wrong sensor for the car. The correct sensor would also have 3 wires: a signal wire, a ground, and a voltage, reference voltage wire. The 4 wire sensor sounds like it might be a Heated Oxygen Sensor, not applicable on your car.

1997, Mercury Villager, NO HEAT. Flushed radiator, flushed heater core. Has a rear heating system, is there an additional heater core and maybe a valve in the rear heating system?

you have air trapped in system. If you could hang van like a deer in a tee, you could get the air out. Go to a sho with evac/fill equipment and have them purge the air. You are about 3 qts short of full

go here too. read cooling system files.

My villager is not putting out heat and it is over

You have classic air trapped in the cooloing system. Go to a shop that has evac/fill equipment that will flush and fill your cooling system for $75.

Tell them you want the air completely out.

go to our site and read files on this topic. The problem is that the radiator cap is lower than the coolant chamber is the engine cylinder head.. If you could get van at 45 degree angle uphill and loosen radiator cap, you might be able to burp the system.

Rear Air & Heat does not work on '97 Mercury Villager.

It's probably the cracked solder joint on the control assembly in the frony. I fix them all the time and sell them for $30 plus shipping. I always keep a spare repaired in my garage. villagers & Quests are noted for this. Don't know why you don't have lights on rear panel. I keep a spare one of those too, but it should have no affect on heater performance. Let me know if you are interested. You have to send yours back to me though.

If you are a techie, I will refer you to our Villager forum where there are files and photos on everthing about Villager & Quest issues.

see the circleed area where the bad solder joint is on the backside of the control head.
