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.

2004 Mercury Grand Marquis Reviews
Over all it's been a god car, I've had two issues that I believe shouldn't have been & that is in the older cars if the upper ball joints went bad in either side you removed & installed what ever side needed to be repaired, not on my 2004 Mercury Grand Marquis, yo have to replace the whole upper assembly on account that the ball joint it comes welded to the upper arm, not only is it very expensive but a pain to do it your salve. The other issue is that the door locks acts crazy, you lock the doors & it's start to make a clicking sound & the driver side lock goes in the open position & stays in the open position, so you think that your locking your car @ night, not its not, you wake up next morning & yes you guest it its in the open position not only is this a safety issue, persons that want to get into your car & take your property & you have a losses of personal property. If any one can tell me were to look in the car for the possibility for me to be able to at least try & repair it myself, maybe a sensor & the position were such part or sensor might be, thank a million if you can help.

MY 2004 GRAND MARQUIS MERCURY I BOUGHT NEW WITH NO MILEAGE.
NOW IN 2010, IT HAS 45,000 MILES ON IT . MY COMPLAINT:
IT DRIVES LIKE IT HAS NOOOOOO POWER STEERING AT ALL AND
CAUSES ME PAIN IN BOTH ROTATOR CUFFS ( REQUIRING TWO
NERVE BLOCK CORTISONE SHOTS SO FAR). FINALLY, MY MECH.MGR
HAS RETURNED ,SO I AM HAVING HIM CHECK OUT THE STEERING
PUMP, BALL AND BEARINGS, CABLES THIS WK. THE GEARS ON THE
STEERING WHEEL ARE WAY TOOO HARD TO SHIFT ! I AM SLIGHT
AND THIS RACK AND PINION ASSISTED STEERING IS NO GOOD, TOO
STIFF, TOO PAINFUL TO DRIVE !! IF ONLY I HAD MY OLD
CLASSIC CAPRICE CHEVY REAR WHEEL FULL POWER STEERING
(NOT ASSISTED) BACK !( MY CAPRICE WAS STOLEN IN 2008,ALAS!)
QUESTION: WHAT CARS HAVE FULL ( NOT ASSISTED RACK AND
PINION ) POWER STEERING AND EASY TO SHIFT GEARS ? I WILL
HAVE TO GET RID OF THIS 2004 GRAND MARQ UNLESS MY SUPER
MECHANIC MGR CAN FIX IT UP MUCH BETTER THAN IT IS NOW !@
