Question about 1995 Mercury Villager

1 Answer

I have 307 thousand miles on this car and it has been wonderful until I changed the battery. It want continue to run after turning the engine over. I put a fuel pressure meter between the new fuel filter and the rear bank fuel line and installed a new pressure regulator valve. With a vacuum pump I simulated the 14 to 16 Hg value and the fuel pressure dropped off from 43psi to 38. I next tested the fuel injectors with a light and they are working. On the test to check how fast the fuel pressure dropped by 8 psi in three minutes, I observed that it dropped much faster indicating a leakage in the fuel injector area, but the engine should at least run. I am out of ideas on what to try next. Thanks Tom Yarbrough

Vw tiguan 1.4tsi engine light on/running only on 95 fuel

If you do not get rid of engine light on (yellow one), and computer diagnostics say: bank intake manifold valves stuck and/or toghether with errors in lambda not change anything until trying to run only the fuel 99 or 100 for few thousand miles...assuming that you've used until now the 95 fuel. The TSI DOES NOT RUN WELL ON 95 FUEL, although VW says it does. After several K miles using 95 fuel all the evacuation and intake system will be full of dirts. I had the same starting with 80K...and after running 10K only on 100 fuel, the system got cleaned, engine light off, engine sounds smoother and no chocking in the morning. Now I have 118k and all is fine. Until I solved the issue with the help of 100 fuel, no auto dealer could tell me the problem..all of them adviced me to change different parts, upgrades etc.

What are the most important things to replace at 239,560 miles? I am more worried about the engine and transmission. (sensors, seals, oils)

Generally speaking, once a car gets past 100k you replace something when it fails.
The overall life expectancy of a car such as yours would be 150,000 miles. Of course they can run for 3 or 4 hundred thousand miles under the best conditions.
For example, your car uses a timing chain instead of a belt. Timing chains are expected to last the life of the engine, and usually don't fail until after 200k. Same thing for the water pump, fuel pump, oil pump, and so on.
If you changed the trans fluid and filter at or before 100k, it should be done again. You would change the belts and hoses, fuel filter and ignition parts at every 50k or so. Therefore you would have changed them at least 3 or 4 times by now.
The problem with your transmission is not normal, but not uncommon with that many miles on the clock. I would not rev it up in drive beyond 1500 RPM in case it suddenly engages.

My Yukon XL is burning oil and has been since around 29,000 miles, it now has 39,000 miles. Have had the Yukon to a professional dealer and several problems were found but it still needs a quart of oil at...

Hello, 1 quart in three thousand miles, great, awesome, wonderful don't worry about it. As long as you know it. This is normal for a lot of engines. For many Chrysler Motor Co. there engine would use a quart of oil in the first 500 miles and after that, none. Oil change, another quart in 500 miles.
I would drive that Chevy around the world. I wish you many hundreds of thousands of miles. GB..stewbison

I think your car has a timing chain. There are a thousand things that can turn that light on. Have a shop ck it for trouble codes and that will give a direction on what to do next. Keep out af any chain store operation. If you cant find a good independent garage go to the dealer.

How often do it need an tune up,oil change engine coolant and brakes changed?wen to check the oil

this depends on how you drive and how many miles you have on your car and what type oil you are using, on a 1994 you should do a tune up every 30 to 40 thousand miles. You need to do a engine clean then change oil. if you use a good quality oil you can go every 3 to 5 thousand miles on changing oil. You need to change the oil in the drive train after 30 thousand miles and the transmission oil and filter should be changed every 30 thousand miles. Also the Thermostat and antifreeze should be changed every two years to make sure the anti freeze is still lubricating the water pump. Failure to change antifreeze has burt up more engines than I can recall. Check oil in the morning when cold. Check the transmission oil when hot and in park. If you want more detailed information post here.

It has almost 200,000 miles on it. And I was hoping to know if I can have the engine and transmission rebuilt. Will that keep it running?

You know it will, why ask. Why go that far till you have to. It will cost more than the car is worth
