The problem started out with the following errors! 1. crankshaft position sensor fault, 2. misfire detected cylinders 1 and 3, and 3. general check plugs & wires. Check was done at auto parts store so i know they are not the best readers to go by. Replaced Crank sensor, wires and plugs. New error was only misfire detected cylinder #3 and a strong smell of gas in exhaust. Removed coil pack noticed several cracks and thus replaced. No longer have misfire issues but now engine idles rough until it stalls within 15sec to 2 min. Error codes now are P2197 lack of heated 02 sensor indicates lean condition bank 2 sensor 1, P21945 lack of heated 02 sensor indicates lean condition bank 1 sensor 1, P0106(Man. absolute pressure)/BARO or MAF (Mass Air Flow) / VAF (Vane Air Flow) sensor condition, and P0102 (Man. absolute pressure)/BARO or MAF (Mass Air Flow) / VAF (Vane Air Flow) sensor condition. Also still strong gas smell in exhaust, any clues as to what is going on and how the ignition system messed with this?

It happens every time I drive the car. However I have noticed that when it has rained or is raining it isn't as bad

2000 mercury mystique has factory alarm auto lock key fob. Battery good in car and key fob. Intermittedly will not turn over to start. If the key fob is used a second time to lock and then unlock the car, it starts every time. Could it be a bad chip in the key fob or bad receiver in the ignition, which intermittedly gives a no-go start signal

The fan dial on the dashboard, does not work on the 1st and 2nd dial notch, it does work on the 3rd and 4th notch.

Is this a dealer ship repair or a local repair?
Cost and time to repair? Thank you

I had less then 1000 miles and the battery was dead, this happened 2 more times and the last time there was with 3050 miles on car. Dealership said they couldn't find any problems and I should drive it more. They keep telling me they cannot fix it if they cannot find anything wrong. Something is draining the battery, but I'm told nothing is wrong. I got in touch with Ford and they told me to take it in again and they will check it. That will be the 3rd time and they probably won't find anything again because if I drive it in, the battery will be charged up again. They keep telling me there is nothing wrong with the battery. I found on the net that other people are having the same problem and are told the same thing I am being told, nothing wrong and drive it more.

how to drain the cooling systeam

Codes po171 and po174 came on what should I change

my mariner makes nois when brake is applied/usually from speeds over 30mph. I would call the noise a cranking noise. my friend Josh who can do all kinds of auto repairs and used to race cars and build his own engines, etc agreed about noise that it isnt a grinding noise but moreer of a cranking noise.I had him check front brake pads and rotors and both look like new he said. He also noted that it doesnt make the noise going in reverse which would also indicate that the noise isnt from bad pads or rotors. He thinks the noise is most likely due to the ABS system,,,,any thought or ideas would be great

i just had a tune up and when my brotherinlaw did it he gap the spark plug wrong so he fix that problem but i drove it for a week it started to hesitate again so we replace the coil now it runs good but i notice this morning it hesitate a little he said that the spark plug got burn a little because the first time he gap them was wrong do you think that could be the problem

How much does it cost to put a replacement side mirror back on my 2000 Sable? First time in my life I went through a carwash and it knocked it off right in front of my eyes. Carwash will get new mirror but will not pay to put it back on. How much does that cost and/or can I do it? I noticed wires are holding the broken on.
