1999 mercury villager. Changed converter fuel filter. Relays. Flushed tank a lot more.n every time it gets warm it rough idles n won't let full rev.


If the exhaust smells rich,like gas the oxygen sensor could be bad,is there a check engine light on or have you scanned it for codes. A fuel filter can do this but I suspect the idle air solenoid is bad or clogged passages for the IAC.

Check/clean the MAP sensor and throttle position sensor. This should fix the issue. Its a common problem with Chrysler products.

Could be low fuel pressure, or a long list of other things.
Is the check engine light on ?

go to villager quest yahoo group for expert help. Sounds like a dirty MAF sensor. Clean heated wires with carb cleaner.

TPS readngs are good.

fuel pressure should be 43 engine off, and 34 engine running.

try disconnecting front oxygen sensor for a day & see if better.

Where is the fuel filter on a 1997 mercury villager located and how did change it


  • Relieve the pressure in the fuel system by first removing the engine compartment relay panel cover on the left side. Then, remove the fuel pump relay from the relay pane and start the engine. Let it idle until it stalls, and then crank the engine for about 5 seconds to make sure the pressure was released. Turn the ignition off.

    Disconnect the negative battery cable. Raise and support the Mercury Villager. Remove the fuel hose clamps, and then disconnect and plug the hoses to prevent them from leaking fuel. Take the fuel filter out of the bracket.

  • 3

    Install the new filter in the bracket with the arrow pointing toward the engin in direction that fuel flows through the system. Connect the fuel hoses to the new filter. Put on the hose clamps and tighten them. Make sure they are properly tightened so there are no fuel leaks, and that pressure is maintained at about 36 in-lbs.

    Lower the vehicle and reconnect the negative battery cable. Start the engine of your Mercury Villager, and check for leaks. Make repairs if necessary.

    1996 Mercury villager 96,000 miles- dies out


    Here is the common cause of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.
