SOURCE: why does my '02 mountaineer keep dying on me?

I'd be looking at the idle air control valve on side of throttle body. It regulates idle under load conditions such as when turning, AC on, heater etc, brakes applied etc, & steps idle up to maintain proper idle.When this goes faulty it lots of times doesn't send a code. You may get away with just pulling it off and cleaning plunger & port it comes out of with throttle body spray cleaner,It's worth a try before you replace.

Check the AIS (idle speed motor) the bypass passage may be clogged with crankcase vent sludge. This is a problem I found many vehicles

SOURCE: 2002 Mercury Sable-shakes with acceleration

You describe this as an acceleration problem however, if the car does throw a check engine light it should be recorded in system memory so it can be pulled by scanning with and OBDII scanner. It sounds as if the car is being starved for fuel on acceleration. Check the fuel lines for kinks as well as check the fuel pressure. The problem could be a faulty fuel pump that has yet to completely die.

SOURCE: I have a 2001 Mercury Sable the check engine light

Hi, this is an issue that concerns the coil pack on your engine. It is malfunctioning. and, i recommend testing to make sure of thsi issue.

Check for dirt, corrosion or damage on the terminals and repair as necessary.

Measure coil primary resistance between ignition coil pin 4 (B+) and pins 1 (coil 2), 2 (coil 3) and 3 (coil 1) .

Resistance should be 0.3-1.0 ohms. If resistance is out of specifications, replace the coil pack. If resistance is within specifications, proceed to secondary windings testing.

Coil 1-cylinders 1 and 5 Coil 3-cylinders 2 and 6 Coil 2-cylinders 3 and 4

Resistance should be 12.8-13.1 kilohms. If secondary resistance is not within specification, replace the coil pack.

You can jump this link below for a good look at a diagram of the coil pack.

My 2009 mercury mariner steering wheel keeps shaking and jerking along with a noise when its in idle or stopped at a light. It has to in my colum . Doesn anyone know wat it culd be?

This can be caused by a weak or misfiring engine cylinder but the check engine light would be on an most likely flashing, if that isn't the case you may need new engine mounts.

My ABS light comes on and goes off in my 2005 mariner. I sometimes notice a grinding sound and can feel the brake pedal shake when turning left or right. Only when the light is on.

check the hub/wheel bearing and your brakes the abs is part of your hub assembly and if hub damaged or failing will affect the abs system --also check the sensor and wiring sometimes debris damage the wire but with grinding and shake most probable is hub and a brake job

93 Dodge Spirit hit curb Hit curb on back driver side tire. Nothing wrong with tire but right after I hit the curb, my car started to shake and slow down. It turned off completely when at a stop. Oil...

the smoke came from the spilled oil leaking onto a hot surface ( manifold) No problem there. The oil light coming on was probably from the oil surging away from the oil pickup in the sump momentarily allowed the oil pump to suck air hence a drop in oil pressure. To have all that happen, the hit on the curd was substantial. so I thinking bent axle flange and broken engine mounts could explain vibrations and engine shaking

Have your mechanic check your exhaust out put. There are three things to check: egr valve,oxygen senser(s), if these are good, you have a stopped up catalytic converter(s). Remember your engine must breathe too.

Why does my 99 mercury cougar shake when i come to a complete stop and accelerate over 55mph.

tires could need balanced. However, my past experience says its because your rotors are warped. They need to be machined smooth again. Doing this requires new brake pads as well. Should just be the front causing the problem
