I take it you didn't winterize the engine? If that's the case what usually happens is a light film of rust has bloomed in your cylinders over the winter due to condensation and the starter can't overcome the friction. I had this problem a couple of years ago. The guys in the shop had me buy a can of fogging oil, remove the sparkplugs and squirt it into the holes until it backed up twice a day for 2 days. Then leave it alone for 72 hours with the plugs in. That was it! it actually worked for me! Hope it helps you to....

My 2008 mercury mariner starts and runs about 4 sec, and then dies? We did check to see if any gaskets were sucking air, we've replaced the fuel pressure rail regulator. What do we check next?

There are a few ideas here, but my advice is to have it looked at by a Mercury dealer. Nothing like being 4 miles out and your engine fails. Mine is serviced at the end of every season and costs me about $125.

How to replace the defrost motor in my 2008 mercury mariner . only the high works speeds 1, 2 & 3 do not blow at all only on 4 which is high.

Thanks for using!
The Motor is fine, the Blower Motor RESISTOR, not the Motor itself, is defective and must be replaced.
When the Blower Motor Resistor fails the Blower Motor will only work on High.
