Have the transmission fluid level checked , if you don't know when it was last changed i'd have that done , as old fluid loses its viscosity and other properties just like engine oil

SOURCE: I want 2 change 2004 mercury mountaineer transmission fluid

The best way to change it is to flush it out You can do it yourself, but I do not recommend. A shop that is good like a Monro or Firestone usually charges about 100 bucks to flush and that includes the fluid. If you do it yourself, you will save about 60 dollars, but you risk damage to your radiator.

you will need a hose and an adapter. you back out the lower, or upper cooler line for your trans, whichever is the easiest to get to, (Some trucks have an auxiliary engine oil cooler, but make sure you are flushing the trans lines) put the adapter into the rad where you removed the line, and put a hose from each one down into a bucket. Have about 14 qt's of ford trans fluid ready. Put the funnel into the trans dip stick, and start the engine. pour the qts into the dipstick tube while the old fluid is pumped into the bucket. When you have about two gallons pumped into the bucket shut the engine off and reattach the line into the radiator. start up the engine and check your level. Fill with additional fluid if needed.

note: some say you should drop the pan. two things, you only change half the fluid when you do it that way, and second if you need to change the filter because it is clogged, it is too late for the transmission. The filter is only there to protect the valve body, not keep the fluid clean.

Hope this helps

Stop by a dealer. Give them your Vin# and they should give you the factory code.
Then stroll into the service bay, like you own the place,get a tech off on the side, to write down, how you progam your own code,into the keyless entry pad

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

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

Hi there William, your problem could be that the auto rquires servicing if there is a dipstick for the auto oil check the colour of it, if not red/pink. Maybe low on trans fluid. Auto parts shop for correct fluid.May require auto shop for code scan as well.

My airbag light on my 2002 mercury mountaineer continiously stays illuminated any reason why and how to fix it?


This is probably a seat sensor but it could be the pretensioners or the air bag. When the vehicle is started, there is a sensor test that is run on the SRS (air bag) and if it finds something wrong, the light comes on. Given that this is a life safety device and there are hazardous parts in it, you should take it to a dealer to have it worked on.

Seems as if the gears are slipping and sometimes it will "stutter" when i press the gas. it's an automatic '02 cougar. should i change the transmission filter? Is the filter just inside the pan?


I also have the same car and same problem. I did find that you cannot drop the transmission pan. It is all one unit.
Mercury recall on 2002 was a sock filter in fuel system. Said mine was not one of them, but all signs are the same.
It has been recommended to have the flush done on transmisson.
