96 Mercury Villager gas leak from front drviers side

This is a recent development, but there is a gas leak that is coming from the front end, driver's side. Smell was noticed this morning around 7 am with temps in the single digits (8 degrees). Leak was noticed on ground a few hours later with a significant amount of fuel on the ground. Could this be part of the recall from 01? Van was bought used so not sure if this was taken care of before.

A somewhat common problem on Nissan cars and imports that use clamps for fuel lines. Altho not usually that major.
Often times the rubber fuel hoses leak in very cold weather. The fuel lines going to the tank are on the driver side. So is the fuel filter.
I have to tighten up a clamp every winter on my 98 Villager when the temp drops below 30 degrees.
If the leak is major enough to leave a puddle on the ground you should have no problem finding it.

SOURCE: coolant smell when defrost is engaged in hot setting

There is only one possible cause to this easily diagnosed symptom. Any mechanic will tell you: the heater core is leaking. This is why the steam is rising up to the windshield, and why you are smelling coolant. Your heater needs to be replaced. There is not quick fix, just replacement. Hope you can get this done soon. Heater cores are nice to have during winter weather. Steamy windows aren't easy to see through, and are hard to defrost! Thanks for the question. Good luck. TT

SOURCE: '97 Mercury Sable coolant leak coming from under

after you run the car for a while do you see that the oil on your dip stick looks milky? if so the leak is getting into the oil. If so this may be a blown head gasket.

SOURCE: My 96 Mercury villager (Canada) won't start

I had a similar problem with my '95 Villager.

After having it towed to "my" mechanic, here is what he did.

Undid the fuel line to the engine and had me crank the engine --- no fuel came out in spite of the fuel pump whining away.

He then reattached the fuel line and took a rubber mallet and thumped on the bottom of the fuel tank with the mallet as I cranked the engine.

The van started.

It was a fuel pump problem and he suggested not drive the van until the fuel pump was replaced because his "fix" was only temporary and I could be left stranded again.

I took his advice, the fuel pump was replaced and we've been driving the van ever since.

1997 Villager gas smell when outside temperatures are hot and vehicle has been driven.


A common problem with Nissan products, which this van is a Nissan Quest with Mercury trim.
There are several small rubber fuel hoses around the intake. When the air temp is cold these hoses can leak and then stop leaking when the air temp warms up.
When the air temp is cold, look around the intake with the engine running and you should see one of the hoses wet with fuel.
Just tighten the clamp.

94 Mercury Villager,160K. With overdrive on shifts hard in and out. Recently developed trouble shifting into 3rd. Not constant. Fluid looks good. Not slipping.


check or replace the TPS sensor on the throttle body. Throttle position sensor.

It is a very delicate adjustment after replacement with a voltmeter.

If not that, replace the dropping resister.

When my 2000 Villager shifts if kind dips or


That movement is called TORQUE STEER. One front wheel pulls harder than the other under acceleration, and as you say, its only noticeable at the first moment. A renewed front end shouldnt have that problem. maybe some steering or arm ball joints are loose, worn out (not replaced) or simply out of alignment. I advise that you take it for a new front end alignment, the technician will tell you about any part out of spec that will impair the alignment.
