Question about 2005 Mercury Mountaineer
Only in reverse? May have a shift solinoid issues or something related to it. You will need an experienced tech to do a scan check to see if any of the sensors or solinoids are out of range or slow acting as you may not get the bad code to come out rightaway but it causes durability issues and having the right experienced teck that knows how it works it will save you headaches and $$ in the long run. Also another thing that comes to mind is a possible vacuum leak from your brake booster and tgat is something you can check at home without a scanner. With a long needle vicegrips reach over and squeeze the big vacuum hose going to the booster letterly plugging the pass of vacuum inside. Very carefully start the car, apply the brake pedal and you will notice that they are stiff, then put it in reverse and see if does the same thing. If that fixes it then you have a bad brake booster, if it doesnt help any then your problem is elsewhere. DO NOT LEAVE THE VICEGRIPS ON THAT HOSE it will make the pedal very stiff and it wont want to stop which can lead you to have an accident.
