Here are just a few causes--- Dirty air filter, faulty oxygen sensor ( check engine light will be on)--- Defective map sensor ( MAP ) manifold absolute pressure sensor. Defective tps ( throttle position sensor ) Defective ect ( engine coolant temperature sensor. This is just a few causes. If the check engine light is on, You can go to any auto parts store and they will read the code for free. God-Bless!

98 Mercury Mystique 2.5 6cyl., I got a scanner code of 1121. Issue, car would hardly start then not start after a few tries. Disconnected MAF and car started and runs, a little sluggish at take off. What...

PO 1121 ---Throttle Position Sensor Inconsistent
with MAF Sensor

PCM monitorsTPS to MAF readings

If readings are not consistant with calibrated load values
the test fails & a DTC is set on your dash (1121)

Air Leak between MAF & Throttle Body

With the MAF disconnected you have no way to
monitor the air intake or air temp.

I would suggest you let a repair shop diagnose your issues

I have a 95 mercury mystique and it starts but but


It has a built in reostat inside of it which can get a flat spot anywhere in its circuit explaining why your car hesitates or sounds like it is ready to stall out
I would replace it and have the voltage set at 1.5 volts when set at the idle position
Then it should run fine again

This is for both size engines since you didn't list the motor size......

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove air intake resonators.
  3. Remove the air cleaner-to-throttle body tube and the mass airflow sensor.
  4. Unplug the connectors and remove the cables from the alternator.
  5. Raise and support the vehicle.

  8. Lower the vehicle.
  9. Remove the power steering pressure hose bracket retaining nut and bolt and remove the bracket with the hose from the engine lifting eye.

  15. Release the drive belt tensioner and install the drive belt pulley over the alternator pulley.
  16. Lower the vehicle.

My 1997 Mercury Mystique dies frequently when stopping at intersections or slowing down to make turns. If sitting still and trying to idle the motor surges and will finally die. Driving without any stop...

I have a 97 too, got it used and have had it for 6 years. Mine has over 120,000 miles on it. transmission has been replaced, now the alternator just went out. My car did this "cugging" and trying to stall for the longest time before the alternator went.
You should check all the hoses for sludge build up (especially if you let the gas get below 1/4 tank), then check the battery and altanator. These seemed to be the major problem with the car. Although now the electrical system in the car is going.
To make alternator repairs at a shop is just under $400.00 or you can do it yourself for parts and about 30mins of work for $170.00.
You can have the battery and alternator checked at Advanced auto parts or Discount auto parts for free.

Hope this helps! Other than that save your money and get out of that car!
