2008 Mercury Milan Problems

Power Steering Fluid Leakage

Power steering fluid may leak at the power steering pump, line, and/or steering rack. The lines may not be clamped tightly enough, causing a leak. Add new clamps and seals to the power steering line to the pump and to the steering rack.

Harsh or Delayed Shifting of Automatic Transmission

The automatic transmission may develop shifting concerns. On lower mileage vehicles, upgrading the software in the powertrain control module (PCM) and the transmission control module (TCM) may correct the problem. As the mileage increases, internal transmission damage can occur. Repairs could involve replacement of the valve body or a complete transmission rebuild. Whenever major transmission repairs are made, it is important to be sure the PCM and the TCM have the latest software updates to help prevent these issues from reoccurring.

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.

2008 Mercury Milan Reviews

I have a 2008 Mercury Milan premier. It now is 7 yrs. old and I had only maintenance done but had to replace the battery. It drives beautifully, is carefree, and comfortable. I wish that it would get better mileage. I am planning on keeping it another 3 yrs. because it has 30K. I wonder if I should buy extended warranty, since it will expire in a few months.
very thang comes on but it will not srart
Have only had car since Jan 09,and so far so good. A bit disappointed in the dashboard glare in the windshield. it can be rather distracting on sunny days. it does have the I4 engine.
