2006 Mercury Mariner Problems

Knock/Pop Noise from the Steering Column when Turning

Looseness in the steering shaft and steering shaft coupling U-joint can cause a knocking / popping noise from the steering column when turning. The steering shaft and coupling U-joint will need to be replaced.

Check Engine Light Illumination

The check engine light may come on due to failure of the Variable Camshaft Timing (VCT) solenoids. The VCT solenoids will need to be replaced if they are the reason the check engine light came on.

Transmission Fluid Leaks from Transmission Oil Cooler

The transmission oil cooler may develop a leak, which will require replacement to repair.

2006 Mercury Mariner Recalls

Shift Lever Disengages From Transmission

For a vehicle that has had a remanufactured Ford automatic transmission installed, the shift lever bolt may be loose, allowing disengagement of the shift lever from the transmission. Dealers will inspect the transmission and either tighten the shift lever bolt or replace the shift lever assembly free of charge to resolve the concern.

Hybrid System May Overheat And Cause Stalling

The coolant pump for the hybrid system may fail, resulting in the hybrid system shutting down, and the vehicle losing power. Dealers will inspect and replace the original motor electronics coolant pump free of charge to correct the concern.
