SOURCE: 1996 mercury villager, timing belt broke

try to jump the car, if it starts, and pull off one of the cable connector from the battery. if the car stop. than you need to change the starter. if the car will not start with a jump, then you have a bigger problem. the cost of repair is up to you, if you don't have other means of trasportation then, it is worth, if yu have other idea, then it is your call.

SOURCE: 1993 Mecury Capri Timing Belt? Fuel Injectors?

If it runs better at times, then it sounds like a sensor. The ECT could be bad, it can cause idling and power issues.If the check engine light is flashing, then that can also be researched...blueamber...I've owned 6 of these capris so far

Generally you would need to check the level of freon in the system, and probably the expansion valve in the rear unit. You should have one hot and one cold ac line going to each evaporator.

I have a 1997 mercury villager van it started blowing cold air instead of warm out of the vents I replaced the thermostat and still having the same problem the heat only works on and off and now the van...


You have fitted the thremostat in the wrong way around ,the body of the stat goes in towards the engine and thats why you have a hot hose and a cold one the water isnt circulating,when you get it sorted then if still cold heater put some cardboard in front of the radiator to stop the air flow then it work right

I have a 2001 mercury villager that overheats. I replaced the fan assembly and the thermostat. The radiator is fine. What else could be causing the van to overheat?


You have air trapped in the system. If you have cold air, warm air, cold air from your heater, then it's air entrapment. Very common these days. Go to a shop that uses vacuum method to refill cooling system & that will purge air.
Otherwise, you can try. Park uphill. cold engine - fill radiator to top with 50/50 mix of antifreeze. leave cap on but loose. fill reservior to 3/4 full. Turn heater to hot to allow coolant to flow through heater core. start engine, run at 1500 rpms until thermostat opens and upper hose is hot. tighten cap and let it cool down. after cool check level of reservoir. fill to top line on reservoir. it should **** coolant back into radiator as it cools down.
repeat if still an issue.
