Go to this website and pick owner guide on left task bar. Input vehicle info then get the owners manual.Your fuse panel info starts on page 120.

To replace lighter just reach around behind it and unhook connectors. The stick something in the socket(I usually use 2 fingers) and twist it counter clockwise. the center will screw out of the sleeve.

Hello Sdhesseltine.

The flashing check engine light is telling you the engine is misfiring and your description of the problem confirms that.
There will be a code stored in the vehicles engine computer that will tell you which cylinder(s) is/are misfiring.
Spark plugs, ignition coil, fuel injectors or internal engine problems will cause this.
If it has been a while since your last tune up it would certainly be a very good place to begin.
The usual tune up stuff, spark plugs, air and fuel filters for the basics.
A fuel filter will not be at fault in this case but is part of a tune up on this model.

If you require further advise, please ask me here in comments, be glad to help.
Thank you for using FixYa.

97 Mercury Mountaineer driver side door won't open. Outside handle flops around; inside handle won't open door

Try a slim jim first, down the side of the window. Or AAA or locksmith. If no luck, remove the seat first. Find the screws and bolts around the door handle and arm rest. Most Ford's have screws around the outer side of the panel. I don't believe your's does. The panel lifts or pops off. Once the panel is off, you can reach down and open the door. Just a note. I have done some to where the panel came out in pieces.
