Diagrams is not the best on my system. It says towards the rear of the engine but the connector picture shows it close to the front of the car, mid way in the engine. Shows to have a black/white wire and one that shows to be shielded. It has one bolt holding it in place. Hope that helps.

How often do i change the oil on a mercury mountaineer 2005?

It depends on how many miles you drive annually, the environment your vehicle is driven in (dusty, hot, cold, humid, dry, etc), the type of oil you use (conventional, synthetic blend, or full synthetic), and the condition of your car's engine. You should consult your owner's manual and the data on your engine oil.

I drive a 1999 Mercury Mountaineer 5,0L and drive it about 1,500 miles annually. I use a synthetic blend oil and change my oil and oil filter twice a year. I change the oil in the spring so I have fresh oil for the hot summer driving season and I change my truck's oil in the fall after the hot summer driving season. Because my Mountaineer has a lot of miles on it, I use thinner oil in the winter 5/20 and thicker oil in the summer 10/20. I check my oil regularly and look at the color and feel the oil for grit. This has worked for me for many years and I have had good performance from my vehicles.

You can go on the different oil manufacture's websites and read their recommendations as well. There has been much debate about when to change the oil in a vehicle so you have to decide for yourself what schedule you want to follow.

Clicking noise when car is running 2004 mercury mountaineer

If your engine has the letters DOHC on the manifold, contact your dealer with your VIN#. If the sound disappears when the rpm approaches 2000 its the CAM PHASERS. The engines need the factory oil and filter and the cam parts can mess up without them. There is a recall with year and mileage limits.
