First Examine the air intake tube( the big black one).there are two silencer chambers on it-one on the side by the elbow and one underneath. I f either one is missing, when the Idle Air Controller (IAC) opens to compensate for the A/C compressor cycling it will make a gurgling/thrumming/roaring sound. if this does not fix it, check around intake/throttle body for loose connections.

SOURCE: 2000 Mercury Sable 24V 3.o engine. Need to know

yes about the upper intake and the only way i know how to check the coils is with a engine anilyser or if the check engine light comes on then you can have the codes pulled and that will tell you which cylender is missfiring this engine has a indevidual coil for each spark plug so thares 6 of them and thay slide right down over the sparkplugs

The Wrench light is a Throttle/Powertrain light, if its shifting weird this may be a problem. It could be a few things. I would take it to a repair shop that deals in hybrid parts, maybe even a dealer. Here is a link that goes in-depth of the Wrench light. As the article says it could be anything from a $12 part to a $1,000 hybrid part. Some are getting this light do to overheating of the Hybrid batteries, hope this helps,

SOURCE: tire noise on mercury mariner so so loud, is there

Tires offer a number of trade-offs. Loud tires provide superior tread wear and a harsher ride, are loud. Soft tires provide a smooth ride, quiet operation and usually fewer miles.

Please go see your Goodyear or Firestone or Continental (or other major brand) tire professional and discuss your concerns with him or her to find the best tire for your application and driving style.

Thanks for your interest in

Air popping sound above motor for 2003 Lincoln town car

Check the vacuum lines. Spray all the vacuum lines , connections, intake manifold areas carb cleaner with the engine running. The idea is that where the vacuum leak is, the engine vacuum will inhale the starting fluid into the engine and you will hear a definite change in engine RPM. Its a cheap and easy way to find a vacuum leak.

When i give gas i hear a noise almost like an exhaust leak

you could have the start of an leaking manifold to find out if this is starting to happen spray some carb cleaner over the inlet manifold while engine is a temp if any changes happen when you spray an area i.e engine idles faster or cuts out then this is were you problem is going to start from. also check the air line with the cleaner. if every thing is fine then its just an intake clean is needed take the top off the inlet spray the carb cleaner in there let it sock for awhile and wipe out ht muck etc. don't do it with the engine running. after a good clean change the air filter. also on some models there is a secondary air intake vale check this as the vale can fail. when the engine valve fails can sound like the engine is high performance but with out the power. usually sits next to the exhaust manifold has 2 pipes coming out of the exhaust manifold to a pipe with a vale on it then a rubber pipe out to the front of the engine bay. some have fans fitted and some don't depends on engine number fitted. will have a filter at the end.

My Mercury Mariner is jerking like it wants to stop it seems like it start when you go up a heel. And now it has a squeal to it what could it be

Bad gas, dirty air filter are just some checks on the jerking while going up a hill...the squeaking could be a loose belt when accelerating under a load...for bad gas add 2 bottles of "heet" then injector cleaner...spray out throttle body if you can...Hope this helps.

Mercury Mariner Hybrid with "Cricket" noise in dash

Ianswerd this question be for and am adding a coment. Iv'e read your coment something must change with the noise i mean fan control knobs or air flow through a spicfic vent any thing that makes the noise change must be related to the noise because you don't have the noise when the vehicle isn't running . It could be related to a vacuum leakall of the accuators are vacuum motors but the noise is more like a hissing sound . And if you do in fact have a problem with one of the accuators witch is possibale but would effect at least one of the vents inside of the cabin and would effect engine porformance do to a drop in engine vacuum witch should make the Mil engine light come on.I wish i could hear this noise for my self . Im sure i could tell you more Dask boards are rather complex and diffacult to disamble on most newer vehicles now a days do to air bags and sensors and high tech robitic assambly methods use when the vehicles are put together and ounce they are taken apart they always make noise squeeks and rattles after that. SORRY i could'nt be more helpful but the noise is all you have to go on to diagnosis the problem

Smoke Test the intake manifold

When the Spark Plugs were replaced,
they may have over looked the intake
gaskets or damaged them

You either have a misfire on a coil that
isn't the one the code showed or you
have intake vacuum leaks & the lean

I may have mis read what you said.

You have to replace all spark plugs,
look at O2 switching time ,then work
on the coil walking thing, with a new coil,
until you find the offender

Where to locate and clean throttle body

TBI is the part where the plastic duct coming from the air filter housing mates the engine. The part where the clamp attaches on the engine side is the TBI. The TBI has attached the Throttle Position Sensor TPS and the Air Intake Control Valve AIC,
A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa.

I have a cold air intake on my mazda 6 car. At the top of where the tube meets engine area there is a noise. It's not a constant noise, almost only when the car is first started. I don't know the name of...

without seeing where you are taling about im guessing it to be noise from air going past the idle ait solenoid at the throttle body, since it will be open farther when cold. if that doesnt make sense, try explaining hte noise a little better. i really dont think its anything to worry abotu if it only does it when cold.

1996 Mercury villager 96,000 miles- dies out

Here is the common cause of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.
