2006 Mercury Mountaineer Problems
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.
The rear wiper may stop working. This could be due to a rear wiper motor that has failed requiring replacement.
A rattling noise from the engine may indicate that the timing chain cassette is worn. Our technicians tell us that installing an updated cassette and timing chain tensioner should correct this concern.

2006 Mercury Mountaineer Reviews
I had purchased a 2006 Merc Mount. Premeir v-8 in 2008 as a off lease veh. still under factory warranty from an authorized Linc. Merc.dealership. I also purchased the Premeir warranty to 60,000 mi. This month I had to bring the truck into the dealership for MISFIRE ISSUES.. Engine warning light flashing at high speed 70 mph. The dealership advised me that the coils were good but at 45,000 mi. all 8 plugs were non serviceable due to severe and wide gaps from burn out. As suspected FORD which stands for FIX OR REPAIR DAILY would not honor THIER BEST WARRANTY nor did after discussing the problem with FORD customer service decided that the 495.00 repair bill is your bad...Thats a real shame, just when I was starting to give FORD a new srart.. Well GM might have taken the bail out money but I NEVER HAD THIS PROBLEM WITH MY CADILLAC WHEN IT CAME TO REAL BACK PROTECTION... FORD IS THE SAME OLD USELESS COMPANY IT WAS ..BACK TO GM NEXT TIME....
