Having problems with your Cars & Trucks ?

I have a 2000 Mercury Villager Mini Van Sport. When I am in park I can rev the engine with no problens, when I put it in gear & push on the gas it spits & sputters & can't hardly get any speed built up. Sometimes it doesn't have any problem & then starts acting up again. Again its a 2000 Mercury villager mini van sport.

Answers :

Have the fuel pressure checked if it is ok then you most likely have a bad cam or crank sensor.. is the check engine light on? that will help to pinpoint the issue. if no check engine light then most likely its a fuel pump.

I have a 97 mercury villager mini van, and lately I have been having bad problems with what I'm thinking might be vapor lock, but when it is hot outside, temperature wise or the engine gets over worked, when you try to accelerate, it causes the car to sputter and then stall out until it cools down, any idea's?

Just had my Mercury Villager 2002 Sport serviced after "Check Engine" Llght" went on. My mechanic indicated that his diagnostic showed 3 Codes. Knock Sensor, O2 Sensor & Unknown. After replacing the Knock & O2 Sensors the "Check Engine" light has gone back on after driving 70miles of so. I have read in several threads that you should never change the Knock Senor for it's a waste of time&Money. You should have all the O2 Sensors changed (Villager has 2 I believe) and the problem could even b

I have a 1999 Nissan Quest. The light for my radio and light went out & I don't know how to get to it. I have a Haynes Repair Manual for the Mercury Villager & Nissan Quest for 1993 thru 2001. However, the design in the book is not the same design as my van. It says to remove parts that are not the same and remove retaining screws around the trim panel (which there are none).So how do I get to the radio seeing that my van is newer than the one that is shown in the manual?
