Question about 1999 Mercury Villager

1 Answer

My 99 Villager has a reaccuring idle problem. After warming up and a few miles of driving the idle will sputter at a red light and sometimes stall. I recently got a tune up but the problem still remains. No one seems to be able to figure out whats going on. I need help!

Buy a 1 gallon fuel can, and when it does it again, turn it off (if it has'n yet) pour the gas inside the gas tank and try to turn it again, if it does start right away, it may be a bad fuel pump, this because after a time it gets hot and looses power, the cold gas will cool it down and make it work again... Good luck

You don't say how many miles its done so is it due a good engine service? Its no good sticking it on a diagnostic unit if its already sick. Get the basics done first.

Do you have a "Check Engine" light?

Check the coils in each cylinder. At 140k the valve cover gaskets tend to break and oil will fill the coils causing misfires and stalling.

1998 Mercury Villiager stalls out when put into gear also at red lights unless it has been running for over 15 minutes?


I suspect your fast idle control is not working. Could be solenoid. Mounted on throttle body.


clean the throttle body passages and clean the MAF sensor with carb cleaner. disconnect battery for 2 hours to clear memory in computer, drive for 10 miles to relearn, may run rough for 10 miles.

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.

My 97 dodge pickup 318 engine will miss sometimes and some times it will run just fine. it will do this while driving and just idling. Pretty much the same issue but with a 95 5.9L. Usually will spit and...


first ... put a bottle or two of gas line antifreeze in the tank (it sucks up water in the fuel)... if that doesn't sort it out.... your coil pack may be dying
