2001 Mercury Grand Marquis Problems

Malfunctioning Headlights

The car had 64600 miles on it and the headlights started going out while driving, which can be very dangerous. The problem is in the Light Control Module which is an expensive part (around $500 to $600 + labor).

Transmission Problems Common Due to Front Pump Failure

Transmission problems are common in this model, often as a result of a failed front pump. The pump loses its ability to create hydraulic pressure, which an automatic transmission needs to function. A sign of front pump failure can be a whine type noise.

Coolant Leak and/or Engine Overheating Due to Cracked Intake Manifold

The composite (plastic) intake manifold may crack near the thermostat housing and cause a coolant leak. Ford released an updated manifold that was reinforced to prevent a recurrence. No recall was issued for this problem but Ford did extend the warranty to seven years on some models from the date of purchase.

2001 Mercury Grand Marquis Reviews

Got car used 4 years ago. Only problem I'm seeing are the intake manifold gasket as mines was just replaced after my car stalled at stop sign. Good Luck to other previous owners with this problem.
Can an oil leak stop my starter from working?
This car has been reliable. 4.6L is a great engine. power windows very slow up and down. side electric mirrors stopped working.Other than that good car.
