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!!!

1999 Mercury Mystique. Was occasionally stalling, but would start up again right away. Had a problem with overheating, but got better when the radiator was flushed. Out and about, the car started...


Hi! First of all check the radiator and auxillary fans for they may be blowing weak, have it replaced to cool down the engine better. Faulty water pump can cause overheating too, you will need to replace this for better engine coolant circulation. Check the timing belt/chain before cranking the engine again for if this is torn down it will damage the engine. IF the timing belt/chain is fine then I suspect the rotors and distributor cap. If this is faulty there will be no electric current to the spark plug to start up the engine. Hope this helps and have a good one!

1999 Mystique keeps missing (chugging) at higher


You should be illuminating the check engine light. If so, rent a scanner, read the codes and pursue to repairs. You should replace the fuel filter and check the air cleaner. The fuel pump may be on it's last legs--check fuel pressure at the fuel rail over the injectors (a tire-valve looking test port). The pressure should be ~45 to 55 PSI with the engine running.

My 1999 mercury mystique shut off when i come to a complete stop


It may be the timing on the vehicle! I was having the same problem, and now I am replacing the timing belt and serpentine belt. I pray that it is the problem and that it fixes what was going on. My car basically stalled when I came to a stop or slowing down fast. Eventually, when I came to a stop got out, and when I got back in, it wouldn't start. So, I may be wrong but I am hoping I am right because of the time and effort that I have put in this vehicle.
