2000 Mercury Villager Q&A
2000 Mercury Villager Question: INTERMITTENT STARTING. HELP PLEASE. WILL RUN FINE ON DAY NOT THE NEXT.
I have replaced about $400.00 so far.My wife will drive the kids to school one day and the next day the motor will turn over but will not fire up and that afternoon fires right up. I have replaced the dist.pluggs,wires and fuel pump and fuel pressuse reg. weard. I think that this is electrical.I noticed that the dash light will dim when driving.I can't trust this van and my wife needs to be able to trust it. - GUYMON
When it wont start check for spark at the plugs!! If spark ok, good and hot, then it must be fuel related. Also it would be nice to have a fuel pressure test gauge hooked up at that time! Any codes? May have a crank sensor problem. If it aint getting spark, forget about fuel!!!!!! - pushrod
on my gmc I had a crack in the plastic top of distributor. I changed that and about a week later it started again. My son in law came by that evening and we were standing in front as my daughter cranked it. The coil powerpack started arcing a spark to metal next to it. We replaced coil pack 25 bucks from auto salvage yard. Do not forget to cake on electrical connection gel on engine side of coil pack, it prevents engine heat from wearing it out pre maturely. That was three years ago...solved my problem. - MarvelousMarv
