Question about 1993 Mercury Villager

1 Answer

1997 Villager won't start when engine is warm

It starts fine and runs well most of the time but once in a while it won't start when the engine is warm. It acts as if the battery is dead but I know the battery is fine. All the dash lights light up and I can hear the fuel pumping for a moment but the engine doesn't turn at all. When this happens I have to wait until the engine is completely cool and then it starts normally and runs just fine. I have been smelling a strong smell of gas ocassionally when I stop at a light. I don't know if this could be related or not?

Sounds like you have 2 problems
one your starter is shorting out when the heat gets to it
the other is your fuel pressure regulator

Won t stay running when first started. runs fine once its warmed up


This sounds like the temp sending unit for the ecm is bad. There are 2 temp sensors, 1 for the light/gauge and 1 for the ecm. The sensor sends a signal to the ecm to tell it engine temp, the ecm them adjusts fuel mixture for cold or warm engine.This works much the same way as the choke does on a carb for cold starts

My friends 1997 villager will not start engine


Assuming the battery is charged, you would first need to find out why it won't crank. I would use a meter or test light to check for power at the starter.
Once you get it to crank you would need to figure out if you are lacking fuel to the injectors or spark to the plugs to proceed.

I own a 97 mercury villager an just won't start


I have a 98 model.
Someone will have to figure out if you are dealing with a no spark or no fuel problem when it won't start.
Could be a long list of causes depending on which issue.

Runs fine when cold, not when warm though


The next time it won't start check the fuel pressure you should have 48-55 psi with key on and engine off.

2.0d x-type 2005 Est. Starting problems when engine is warm


Ok, time for car school. The vehicle is operated by the computer, every electrical concept that is. When the engine is cold, it starts fine because the computer has placed it in "cold start mode", putting more fuel into the engine than normally would until Once the engine is warmed up, a temperature sending unit or temp sensor tells the computer to change to normal run mode. IF said temp sensor is faulty and is not telling the computer to make said change, it stays in cold start mode, still dumping excess fuel in the engine that is now not required, cause it's warmed up. Like keeping the choke closed on older vehicles. Now I think you can answer your own question, when this no start action is happening after warm up and it always starts fine when cold, what's the first thing you check ? Right, the unsuspected temp sensor. Change that and no more start problem. Have a wonderful day. Glad I could be of service.

Problems accelerating


the engine tickover is too slow when the engine is cold its running on cold start, ie:choke,, after it warms up the engine slows down this is what is causing it to stall in gear,, get some one to hold the brakes hard on and with the engine running in gear ajust the tick over till its reving at 750 - 850 rpm the revs will go up a bit when its out of gear,, before you pick a gear to go into push the foot brake down to stop the car lurching,,,
