20 Most Recent 2001 Mercury Mountaineer Questions & Answers

I'm going to first assume that you've checked the battery terminals for gunk build-up. If the electrical system is OK, then the problem likely lies in the gas delivery. You might want to check out the starter anyway. Also, replace the fuel filter and put some Sea Foam or equivalent carb/electric ignition jet cleaner in the gas tank. I might add that your car is 17 years old. Start looking. . .

Door locks are fused and most are run from a relay. Don't buy anything until the lock system is properly diagnosed so you do not end up buying parts that are not needed and can't be returned

If the oil is not cherry red or smells burnt then there was not an oil change done for oil to burn in such a short time, you would have had indications of problems early on and not a few days later. for transmission problems run the fault codes as they will give a good indication of problems that are repairable If you are still worried, have an accredited transmission shop do a pressure test , band and clutch pack adjustment and a filter clean ,then fill with new oil. The pan will be off to do the adjustments and filter so any major failure will be noticeable at that time.

You need special tools to remove the stock radio. Looks like an allen wrench bent into a U shape. Fits into the two holes on both sides of the front of the radio. Then its just a matter of connecting the new radio to old harness. Easier if you have an adapter from Crutchfield or another company.
