Question about 1999 Mercury Mystique

1 Answer

Car Won't Start

I have a 1999 mystique and it would start but its spitfiring like RPMs jumping without touching the gas pedal. then when you do accelerate it just shuts off. And now the car won't start at all. We've been having temp highs in the teens where i live. Could it be the starter or oil? please help!

Take car to dealer for this as it could be the air flow or the other one on the throttle butterfly that controls the fuel quantity,and to change it without knowing will cost you more,or call a mobile mechanic

Do i need to relearn the tps on a 1999 vw jetta


Unhook battery, press brakes to de-power everything. Leave unhooked for half hour or more.

Re-connect the battery. Turn key to on position. Do not start the car... just to on. Don't touch the gas pedal at all. Leave for ~10-20min.

Turn key straight to start and start the car. Do not touch the gas pedal. Let idle for ~10min without touching anything.

Turn off car. Restart, drive. It might take a few heat cycles and a bit of driving before the ECU 'learns' everything over again.

Sounds like your TPS is receiving full resistance. If cable type check cable and the lever on the throttle body, if fly by wire then it may need a new TPS

There have been several recalls on this vehicle for similar problems. I don't see in your posting where you took the vehicle to the dealer to check for recalls. You can call Nissan at 1-800-Nissan1 (in the U.S.) and have them check the VIN without taking it to the dealership. They will tell you if there are any outstanding recalls.
