SOURCE: promblem with engine light

i recently had the same issue with my 98 mountaineer 6cyl 4x4. mine also showed the same codes for lean banks 1 & 2. That means the engine is getting too much air intake.
After about a month of a constant check engine light, i started to notice a hissing sound that came from underhood, that seemed to get louder every few days.
With a patient ear, i traced it to under the battery tray; which, by the way, looked wet from a leaking battery. Here, in phoenix arizona, batteries take a beating.
Under the battery tray there is an emissions component called the "cannister purge valve a.k.a. vapor manegment valve; attatched to it is the solenoid. there's three vacuum hoses, 2 thick 1 skinny, connected to this whole assembly. the top hose runs from the purge valve to the intake manifold.

Well on the purge valve there was pretty big hole. It was located on the chamber that the top hose connects to. Instead of the intake manifold sucking in a small amount of air from the valve, it was sucking in A LOT of outside air from the newly formed hole.

Just FYI, it took a lot of swear words and some scraped up, slightly bloody knuckles trying to get access to the valve, manuevering and such.

My husband had the same problem with his 02 Mountaineer about 6 months ago. I read somewhere that if you take WD40 & spray the door locks it should stop. We tried it & so far it's worked. Good luck!

What does the egr have to do with the 4x4 system an is there a fuse or relay the problem is stuck in 4x4 with no limited slip at al

The EGR has nothing to do with the 4x4 system.The 4x4 is stuck because the transfer case motor is more than likely at fault.You can get these from for under 90.00.

When putting my '04 Mountaineer in reverse or drive, with the steering wheel turned, the car fights very hard to move. Driving straight if fine. Any ideas?

Hello, Yes, It sounds like it is in 4 Wheel drive mode. Your vehicle will not make as sharp of a turn when in 4x4. You should be in 2 wheel drive on dry pavement. If you have the other system called All Wheel Drive, yours would be binding when it should not.

Check your Range Selector for the different settings. When in 4x4, the vehicle is made to take gradual turns so you don't flip it on a hill. Sometimes people mistake the Range knob for the Fan Blower switch.

I have a 97 mountaineer with no manual. I can't figure out how to engage the all wheel drive and its a blizzard out there. Help!!!

The truck(if it's a 4x4 and not a 2x4)has an automatic setting where the truck is in automatic 4 wheel drive when it's needed. If it becomes to harsh out with deep snow, the you must turn the dash mounted switch to 4x4 high, but do not drive in 4x4 high if the ground it dry. The high 4x4 is intended for deep snow or loose sand and dirt. The switch is on the dash just to the upper left side of your radio. If there is No switch, then you may have the FULL TIME all the time 4x4 type and then it's always in 4x4 mode. Hope that helps...

1998 Mercury Mountaineer wheel bearing What tools are needed to change the front wheel bearing on a four wheel drive.

2x2 = nothing special since they are old fashion tapered bearings

4x4 = nothing special again BUT the wheel bearing is part of the hub assembly!
