My Mercury Mariner is jerking like it wants to stop it seems like it start when you go up a heel. And now it has a squeal to it what could it be

Bad gas, dirty air filter are just some checks on the jerking while going up a hill...the squeaking could be a loose belt when accelerating under a load...for bad gas add 2 bottles of "heet" then injector cleaner...spray out throttle body if you can...Hope this helps.

How to replace the defrost motor in my 2008 mercury mariner . only the high works speeds 1, 2 & 3 do not blow at all only on 4 which is high.

Thanks for using!
The Motor is fine, the Blower Motor RESISTOR, not the Motor itself, is defective and must be replaced.
When the Blower Motor Resistor fails the Blower Motor will only work on High.

Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional questions: feel Free to contact us at!

Rough idle

Mercury had a recall on 3.0 duratech motors in 2000 and 2001. If you get a fuel smell at startup then you might have a bad lower intake gasket, it could cause a miss if seal is cracked. Article No. 01-4-3 you can get it on AllData.

Also, check the PC rubber L piece that runs from the PVC valve to under the throttle control - it could be busted.

Make sure ignition wires are not cracked. If you haven't tuned it up in over 30-40K consider doing that.
