1996 Mercury Villager ProblemsCoolant Leak From Plug Behind Timing Cover
A coolant leak may develop from a plug on the front of the rear cylinder head, behind the timing cover.
The distributor shaft bearing can become rusty, and seize causing the engine to stall or not start. The failed distributor will commonly require replacement.
The fuel injectors can fail and cause drivability problems. Often there is no Check Engine light and the failures can be caused by corrosion of the connector, clogging beyond the point of cleaning, and/or internal failures.
