Question about 1996 Mercury Villager
My engine is running rough while idling. unable to find the thermostat
Try doing a basic tune up first. Change your plugs, wires and fuel filter and see if that fixes the problem. You're thermostat is connected to your radiator hose on the top part of the engine.

What does the thermostat have to do with it idling rough? Check your plugs and wires, make sure your throttle body is clean, make sure you don't have any vacuum leaks, and make sure your motor mounts are good. The thermostat should be located at the end of the upper radiator hose by the engine though.

Problem! I have a 2004 Lincoln Aviator and sunday I filled it up with cheap gas. I noticed Monday on the way to work when I got up to about 20 to 60mph the car strating missing. It was not jerking just missing a little. As the week passed I've noticed that it began to idle rough and it is still missing aroun 40 to 60 mph. I assumed i needed a tune up due to the car has 75k miles on it. I took it in for a tune up yesterday and it did not fix the problem. the mechanic said that i may be having transmission problems. I drove it to work this am and notice that now the emissions service light is on. Any clue to what is going on. Alos noticed this am when I stop at t red light it is missing like the car wants to stale but it does not. Could this be due to bad gas? I have like a 1/4 of that gas left to run out and I'm going to refill with prenium gas and a bottle of Lucas fuel injection. Any other ideas or suggestions of what is going on with this vechile?

you may have a blown head gasket ... water can get into a cylinder .. that would cause the rough running and the water goes out the exhaust .. thats why you cant find the leak .. often as the engine is running you will see bubbles in the radiator .. thats exhaust gas getting into the water jacket ... you may also see a little steam in the exhaust (white smoke) ..
