You might have a bad thermostat. Also, I would check to see if the electric fans are coming on after it starts getting hot.

No further stalling or rough idle will occur after the engine is running. The long crank and/or stall may be due to the Idle Air Control (IAC) Valve sticking.

SERVICE PROCEDURE
  1. Perform normal diagnostics and correct any DTCs as required by referring to the appropriate year Powertrain Control/Emissions Diagnosis (PC/ED) Service Manual.

Thermostat?


sounds like the head gasket is no good.pressure is getting into the coolant and overpressurising the resevoir.
if coolant is in the oil,low oil pressure triggered the oil light and check engine trigger results from lost compression.
a compression test will tell you.take a look at the coolant,is there oil in it?

Check for vacuum leaks.You can spray starting fluid around all parts of the intake.Observe idle as you do.If there is a leak the engine rpm will race higher.Also listen for hissing noise.Is the check engine light on?..If so what codes are stored..Good Luck!!!

Engine cooling fan not turning on.


actually the contour and mystique both have this problem they tend to overheat and ruin engines and transmissions when the fan quits working the best fix is a kit you get from ford or advance auto parts it makes the coolong fan run all the time the engine is on and this will save you lots of problems in the future, not only am i a master automotive tech but i have owned 6 of these cars. the 96 mystique beng my favorite. mercury version. good luck james
