If it seems to be turning over slower than you remember, when it was easy to start . the bushings in the starter are probably worn allowing the armature to make contact
with the field coils in the starter case.
this then causes a severe amperage draw on the battery,which in turn drops the voltage to computer and ignition circuit below 12 volts while cranking

Why does my 1999 mystique will crank and run but runs rough

Sounds like your idle valve has stopped working . Does it run fine when warmed Up? If so I would clean the throttle body and remove the idle valve and clean it. After reinstalling it have someone turn the key on while you tap the idle valve lightly with a screw driver Handel. Then see if it will idle when started. If it does then you need a new one.

I have a 95 mercury mystique and it starts but but


It has a built in reostat inside of it which can get a flat spot anywhere in its circuit explaining why your car hesitates or sounds like it is ready to stall out
I would replace it and have the voltage set at 1.5 volts when set at the idle position
Then it should run fine again
