1996 Mercury Villager Problems
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.
The exhaust manifold often warps and cracks, breaking off the studs between the cylinder head and the exhaust manifold. A ticking type noise may be noted most noticeable when the engine is cold.
1996 Mercury Villager Questions
The engine turns over no spark and no gas . there was a wire lose on the ignition switch and it sparked I replaced all the fuses now it wont start just turns over.someone told me there is a reset switch on the back of the van somewhere
The Light on A/C power button does not come on and nor does the ac compressor kick on. Would the faulty button be the problem or could it be the compressor itself be the issue?
I have put 3 altenators on the van. I know the altenator is good but when I have it checked it still says I have a bad voltage regulator. Sometimes it charges but then it stops charging. Is there anything else I should check

1996 Mercury Villager Reviews
I have had this van since 1997. From 16,000 to 135.000 and it has paid for itself. It has needed repairs but considering the years - it has been reasonable. It will probably do another 100,000.
great ride & good mileage. Experience problem with cruise comtrol and air conditioner
