Mercury Villager ProblemsFuel Injectors May Fail and Cause Drivability Concerns
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.
There was a recall to replace the lower ball joints because they were susceptible to damage from moisture.
The distributor shaft bearing can become rusty, and seize causing the engine to stall or not start. The failed distributor will commonly require replacement.
Mercury Villager QuestionsSteering wheel locks but the car keeps moving? (1 answer)
I have a 2000 Villager and I just replaced the cylinder, but now every so often, the steering wheel will lock so I can't move it but the car will continue to move, obviously making it very dangerous. Has anyone had any similar problems with voyager steering wheels?
