Question about Mercury Villager
It may b a fuel pump not supplying enough pressure, a fuel filter not letting enough gas through, or it could be a vacuum leak. It could be any number of things, actually.
If you tried the ignition coil and that didn't help at all, and you are presented with a myriad of possibilities, you may want to take the car to the dealer and have them perform an 'engine analysis' to check out every component that could be causing this problem.
Do you have a service engine light? Sometimes codes get stored in malfunctioning engines and they can be read and help the technician diagnose the problem, more quickly.

Vapor lock only apply to high altitude traveling.
When your vehicle travel above 3000+ feet above sea level the air density is lower.
A dirty air filter will off set the 14.7:1 air to fuel ratio,
A rich burning engine will waste fuel.
Still will occur more frequent on high mileage engine.
When was your last air filter change?
When was your last tune-up?
You can may use a product from a company call Lucas Fuel System Cleaner to remove some carbon off your engine and clean your injectors.
Most likely cause for your stalling problem is small intake vacuum leaks.
As the motor age,the intake manifold gasket will leak.
I can not stress enough about TOPPING OFF gasoline when re-fueling.
A new driver in your family may be topping off???
DO NOT over fill. The addition gasoline will soak the EVAP system and cause un-explainable stilling problem.
Please email me move information after you do the Lucas fuel treatment.
