Go to an exhaust shop and buy a roll of exhaust pipe fix tape
wrap it around the leak and seal it off
as for the $500.00 payment , that sounds a bit rich as if the car doesn't belong to you and you are only renting it or borrowing it , all repairs are at his expense not yours

WONT PASS SMOG.. CHECK ENGINE LIGHT IS NOT ON


Even after resetting the computer it may take several days to reset the internal workings of the computer. When i went for my E Test they asked me if my check engine lite was on in the last thirty days and if I reset the computer I was to run the car and come back in two weeks. I drive an 2005 car.

I have a 2000 Mercury Mountaineer that runs perfect while in park or while driving. When stopped or put in reverse it shakes and stalls.


Is the check engine light on? Mountaineers are bad about developing vacuum leaks which will lean the engine out and cause it to stumble at idle while in gear. Check for p0171 and p0174 codes.

Failed smog test ; gross air leak at vapor recovery system. Replaced gas cap from parts house with a dealer supplied gas cap and the gross leak is gone but a minor air leak is...


If you just want to get through the smog test,they usually allow one monitor test to be incomplete and still pass.
If your area does,clear the codes and fill the fuel tank to the top.The other monitors should run and complete but the fuel tank monitor will not run with a full tank of gas so will not turn on the check engine light related to a tank vac leak.KEEP THE TANK FULL,and go get your smog test!

Why is my truck failing smog?


could be lots of things. What yr is it? After messing with anything drive 40 miles before the computer changes itself. If check engine light is on, take a sharp left turn, wide, kinda fast, be careful. could be dist cap , spark plug.etc.

I have a 1998 Mercury Mountaineer and I have a oil leak some where and it causes a little smoke. So I went to buy this brand which that stops the oil leak when I pour it in the oil tank, nothing happen...


I have no idea what your talking about

Oil Leak Where -- Engine Oil ?

There aren't any products that stop leaks
They just take your money thru advertizing

Smoke coming out of what & where?

Tell us the history on your vehicle
Have you had it looked at by a repair shop?

Back window will not raise up


Most likely. We had a Lincoln Aviator do the same thing. Luckily we had longer warranty on Lincoln. But went to shop with both drivers side windows inoperable at same time. For us it was the motors.
