Question about 1998 Mercury Mountaineer

1 Answer

I have a 1998 Mercury Mountaineer and I have a oil leak some where and it causes a little smoke. So I went to buy this brand which that stops the oil leak when I pour it in the oil tank, nothing happen then til the next day I was driving and all of the sudden the engine starts to shake and smoke was coming out on the sides and when I pulled over to open there was a little flame so I put it out with water. So I let the car cool down and turn the car on it gave me a shake again and then afterwards it stop, but the car still was running okay. I'm worried it will happen again, Can someone help me please?

I have no idea what your talking about

Oil Leak Where -- Engine Oil ?

There aren't any products that stop leaks
They just take your money thru advertizing

Smoke coming out of what & where?

Tell us the history on your vehicle
Have you had it looked at by a repair shop?

1998 mercury mountainer code p0455 large leak what is the fix


There is no one fix for this fault, you need a smoke test done to see if there really is a leak or it is a sensor malfunction, that takes a skilled tech to figure out what and which is the cause. This code can be a real nightmare to diagnose..

If the smoke coming out (the back of the car exhaust) is dark grey...then you have a oil burning problem..this will cause your oil to be low sometimes quickly...if it is leaking out, sometimes oil leaks out on to exhaust under the hood, and can burn making smoke under the hood.. If the smoke is more white, then you have a head gasket problem. If you need to jump start your car, maybe you should drive to a national chain of auto parts store...they test batteries free...and test alternators free too...If you ran too low on oil, you might have a serious engine problem like a seized or nearly seized bearing, worn rings, or nearly seized motor.

Doesn't it seem odd to you, that two mechanics can't seem to get
involved enough to try and at least sound like they know the business
their in?

You didn't say what leaks,where it is,how,when,etc

Did they say the leak is fixable?

The EGR Valve,hoses & such, would be a good place to start

Why didn't they do that?

All this talk & no attempt to resolve a thing

checking gear oil is not checking for a bad gear or bearing with the hub that will also pop the abs change the hub because if grinding is indeed the hub not long from total failure which can cause accident as well as serious injuries

Air conditioner compressor will not run unless you straight wire the relay in the fuse box on 98 mercury mountaineer


Stop wiring around the control system. Something is wrong with the A/C and if you force the unit to run, you expose serious damage, when all you have now is likely a leak. Low pressure switch will interrupt compressor actuation. This was installed to keep small issues small. In the olden days, one would get a leak, the system would then self destruct.
the reason is that the lubrication of the system relies on correct refrigerant quantity, which carries the lube.... low ref., no oil flow.
