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.

My 2002 mercury villager just cut off on me as i was driving down the road. also the radio does not come on in any of the ignition positions. the van will crank but will not start.

I have a 2002 villager estate I just got, and the power seat on the dirvers side will not work, along with the power mirrors. I think it is related to the memory seats, since that controls both. Has anyone else had this problem. Also, the fan on the A/C only works on 4 and the other switch for where the air comes out doesn\'t work. Anyone else? the drivers window switch only puts the window up if you pull really hard on it.

Changing a Timing Belt

at 150,000 miles pretty much everything could be worn out if it is all original, if the van is in really good shape no dents or bad dings paint good, interior is in really good shape and the van has been serviced on a regular basis then yes fix it, also this is a free wheeling engine so if the timing belt breaks there is no damage to the engine, if it ran good with no excess oil useage or engine noise fix it..
