Question about 1998 Mercury Villager

1 Answer

1998 Mercury Villager --- Had to change the front motor mount and lift the engine some to do it. Everything went fine, but now we do not have heat. I could not see any lines loose or crimped, but I am a novice. Could anyone give me any leads on where to look and what to look for? Thank you! Steven

Did you drain coolant? If yes, you have trapped air.

Also, check the cable or wiring going to hot water valve on passenger side in one of the 2 heater hoses going into cowl.

SOURCE: where is a knock sensor for 1998 Mercury Villager located?

  • The sensor is mounted in a fixed position in the engine block. The tip of the sensor protrudes into the crankcase at a distance of 0.05 plus or minus 0.02 inch from the crankshaft.
  • A crankshaft adjusting tool may be used to check these rings.
    • Place the tool on the pulley extension surface and rotate the tool around the pulley.
    • If any blade touches the tool, replace the pulley.
  • Inspect the trigger wheel behind the crankshaft pulley and the sensor for damage.
  • If the engine misfires all the time or on acceleration only, test the following components:
    • Engine compression.
    • Spark plugs.
    • Spark plug wires.
    • Ignition coils test for firing voltage with a test spark plug.
    • Crankshaft sensor.
    • Fuel injectors on multiport and sequential fuel injection systems.

SOURCE: car stalls while moving, then after 2-5 minutes starts back up

disconnect the fuel filter at both ends to see if the filter is clogged. If you are not getting any fuel on either end then you should get a new fuel pump.

Where is the freeze plug on a 1996 mercury villager

Freeze plugs run along the side of the engine block. There are some also between the rear of the engine and where the transmission mounts that you can't see when there connected. Some can be difficult to change depending on which ones are leaking. Sometimes accessories or motor mounts have to be removed to gain access, again depending on which one is leaking.

Need xplodd view of motor mounts , transmission mount , brackets on a 1996 mercury villager van

On a lift is the easiest way because you will need to raise and support the engine while the motor mount is replaced. Once you have a new mount, I would replace both while you are at it, the procedure will become self evident. Not a difficult job.

Actually this can be done at home in your driveway in a couple hours max. Raise the vehicle on jack stands and be sure to set the parking break and block the rear tires. Then use a block of wood and a floor jack under the pulley to raise the motor just enough to take the weight off the mounts. Both the front and rear mounts are attached to the same cross member and you will need to do 50% of the job of taking out the front mount to get the rear mount out and visa versa so it is worth it to replace both if you are going to do one. Remember not to tighten them down more than snug until after the weight of the motor is back on the mounts. There are torque specifications in the front of your repair manual. Of course if you have a lift great, but for most of us do not think that you cannot do this simply because you don't have a lift.
