Mercury Monterey Problems

Engine Misfire Due to Plugged EGR Orifice

On higher mileage vehicles, one or more EGR orifice in the intake manifold may plug with sludge. This can cause the engine to misfire when first accelerating because too much exhaust gas is directed into the cylinders where the orifice is not plugged. Cleaning the clogged passages should correct this concern.

Blower Motor Only Works on High

The 2004-2007 Mercury Monterey with manual temperature and fan controls may have problems with the the blower motor only blowing air on certain settings. Most commonly the fan will only run on the highest setting. This is a well documented problem, and is caused by a failing blower motor resistor.

Correcting the problem is straight forward, and requires replacement of the small resistor. The resistor is normally found behind the glove box, next to the blower motor.

Mercury Monterey Recalls

The Third Row Seat May Not Latch Correctly

The third row seat can experience rust at the seat anchor mechanism mounted to each rear wheel well. As a result, the seat may not fully latch into its seating position. If the vehicle is hit from the rear, an unlatched seat may increase the risk of injury. Dealers will install new third row seat latch striker mounting brackets to correct this concern.

The Torque Convertor Output Shaft May Fail

On certain vehicles, the torque convertor output shaft may fail, resulting in complete loss of power to the drive wheels. This vehicle stalling condition increases the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the torque convertor to correct this concern. The Ford recall number is 11S25.

The Power Liftgate May Fall

The power liftgate motor disengages automatically after the liftgate is powered open, and the liftgate may fall unexpectedly if the liftgate strut fails. If the liftgate falls freely, anyone standing under it may be injured. Dealers will reprogram the power liftgate module to reduce the chances of the liftgate free falling. The recall began March 15, 2006. The Ford recall number is 06S42.

Mercury Monterey Reviews

THIS IS THE FIRST VEHICLE I EVER PURCHASED ON MY OWN. I BOUGHT IT USED IN 2009 AND IT WAS THE WORST INVESTMENT I EVER MADE IN MY LIFE. IN THE SIX YEARS I'VE OWNED IT THE BRAKES HAVE BEEN REPLACED ABOUT 7 TIMES. THE 6 DISC CHANGER STOPPED WORKIN AFTER ABOUT 3 YEARS, THE A/C SYSTEM IS CONFUSING AND EVERYTIME IT RAINS THE ENGINE STALLS AND I CAN'T DRIVE IF FOR AT LEAST 8 HRS! AND DON'T LET ME GET ...
Information center went after 48000 miles.
I bought a 04 mercury monterey with 60,000 miles on it. The carfax was impressive. Every maintenance record EVER from the dealership. I now have 75,000 miles on it and for some damn reason it randomly sputters and dies... Now the rear latch has stopped working. I took apart the rear hatch skin and everything is HEAVILY rusted. The body is also showing rust all over the rockers. I will never buy...
