2004 Mercury Mountaineer Problems
A cosmetic crack may develop on the plastic liftgate trim panel. Our technicians tell us the Ford has released a service procedure to replace the applique without damage the the liftgate glass.
A failed heater blend door or actuator can cause the temperature control for the HVAC system to stop working. A clicking sound from the dash area would commonly indicate an actuator fault. If the heater gets stuck on the hottest setting, the heater blend door may be broken requiring replacement of the heater box to repair the issue.
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.

I have a 2004 Mountaineer, O'boy with 127,000 miles this thing is like a puzzle. Something is wrong every week. Shuts down when on cruise control, idle goes up and down, transmission hits hard when shifting and one window does'nt work. Never again will i buy a ford product. The bad this is that ford will not do anything about it.
