Blessdwth3, Your knock sensor is a round unit that is about an inch and a half in diameter and is usually located on the back side of the engine block, usually near the middle. Just unscrew it to replace it and put wire back on. The speed sensor is usually located on the transmission on the long side extending to the right side of the vehicle. Take out the hold down and pull straight out, a little twisting motion will help with this. Put in new sensor and hold down bolt and replace wire. If you have a code reader then use this to clear the codes. If not, remove the negative battery wire (black wire) for about a minute and this will erase the codes.

    These vehicles are notorious for knock sensor codes and the code is a symptom NOT a cause. Something else is causing the knock sensor code to come on. We are on our 4th Villager and 3 of the 4 have had this issue and we have never replaced a knock sensor. The current one has the code stored currently and it's because we have a faulty fuel injector causing a misfire (and knock). Our previous Villager had the vehicle spreed sensor code and it ended up being a bad speedometer so we replaced the sensor for no reason. I strongly suggest that you join the "Villager Quest yahoo Group as many of the people there have had several Villagers/Quests and can help with common issues. These are great vehicles that will run for a long time with a little maintenance.

2002 mecury villager stalls at low speeds or on acceleration from a stop. Replaced speed sensor and this was not the issue, but diagnostic code says that it still is. Must turn car off and start it again...


First- Codes do not tell you what to fix. You already found that out.
Second-Logically,why would a speed sensor on a trans cause a stall. The speed sensors and there are several.produce outputs on shaft and drum speeds in the trans. Those signals are part of the PCM input strategy for shift points. At low speed,your not shifting,your stalling.
There is no such thing as baffled. Lacks your vehicles system knowledge, maybe!
Do you have a clean fuel filter?
Do you have fuel pressure during the stall?
Do you have fairly new spark plugs?
What does the data for the Throttle Position Sensor,Mass Air Flow Sensor,Egr Valve Etc look like before the stall.
Got vacuum leaks?

Now --you either need to leave the vehicle at a shop,until they repair it
-Find a good tech at another shop that knows your vehicle
Or get the manuals and start on a life long persuit of auto technolgy. I like the last one.
