    My Fuel Gauge stopped working in my 1998 Mercury Mountaineer and I need to know what it could be....I am in the process of fixing the fuel filter but I don't think it has anything to do with that.

According to most mechanics, your problem should be the fuel sender inside the fuel tank.
It might require removing the fuel tank, or, if you are blessed, there might be an access cover inside the rear of the vehicle to get to the top of the fuel tank without removing the tank from the bottom of the car..
Some shops will be recommending replacement of the fuel pump as well, because of the cost and difficulty of doing a gas tank removal twice.
Before going to a lot of trouble, be sure to have someone smart with an electric meter check the fuses, circuit breakers, and such.
God bless your efforts.

The most likely failure that will cause your problem is the fuel level sender in the gas tank. The sender will cause both the fuel gauge problem and the check engine light to be turned on. The sender will need to be replaced to repair the problem.

03 Mercury mountaineer not running right its flooding


Use fuel pressure test gauge to see pressure at key on, pressure when running, then watch gauge as you turn engine off to see if it rapidly leaks down. If so, you have injector(s) leaking.

My 97 mountaineer fuel guage always reads full


You should try to reset the fuel gauge. If it doesn't work, then the sensor might be bad. Go to the nearest auto shop to see about getting it fixed or even replaced.

Were is the fuel pressure sensor on a 2004 mercury mountaineer


Just so you know, I asked about the fuel pressure sensor,
at a local Lincoln Dealer, about a year ago

They only sold 3 in a five year period, for all vehicles,not likely bad

Put a gauge on the fuel rail port or use a scan tool
to look at data

It has to be in the end of the fuel rail somewhere, but you
may also have a fuel temp sensor,my lincoln ls does

What are the issues?,

2005 mercury mountaineer power window will ot let down, radion will not play and fuel gauge not working. This all went out the same time what is this?


Initially look at the fuses. The windows will have their own fuse and the radio may work on the same fuse as the gauges. The fuses must be in the main fuse box. The position and function of the fuses is normally marked on the inside of the fuse box cover and also in the owner's handbook. If you don't come right with these, work your way through the fuses looking for a blown ones. A small pair of pliers will ease removal of the fuses.

99 Mercury Mountaineer will not start on 1st or 2nd attempt.


Ever have the fuel pump replaced ? Classic symptom of long crank time ,the check valve in the fuel pump module is bad . Hooking up a fuel pressure gauge to check for fuel pressure bleed off . Fuel bleeds back into the tank. Try spraying carb. cleaner into the throttle an see if it starts sooner ! I would imagine you don't have a fuel pressure gauge to test it the correct way .
