The van runs fine and has plenty of power on acceleration. Idles at normal rpm, Idel air control motor is working good, egr valve works good by manual depression. Vacuum is steady at 15 inches of mercury. Inspected spark plugs, no problems found, cleaned rotor, distributor cap and inspected plug wires. No emission codes. It's not to bad in park but is very noticeable and sounds like it's going to die at a stop in drive.
Has been making same noise, but only when turning it off. Had it in for oil change, and told service tech. He said it was an internal engine noise, and it's beyond their abiblities. Was driving about 50 mph, when engine died. Tried to restart,turns over, but no reaction from engine. All battery powered items work, good charge. Did not make any other noises (no belt slapping around, no pops, no grinds, etc...). Please help. Villager Estate model, 3.3 L v6 engine.....8th character in vin # is T
I'm trying to find the location of the DLC that is supposed to be under the hood on the drivers side. it is used to put the pcm into "diagnostic test mode" wherein the MIL (check engine lamp) flashes the diagnostic codes
I purchased this van cheap the previous owner had the timing belt replaced after the distributor locked up but he had problems with it not running correct after that! So I bought it for next to nothing and found that the cam timing gear that drives the distributor has a couple teeth missing & it jumps time occasionally. My question is how costly of a job is it to replace it?
Pulled off wiring plug at pump and no 12v there. Is there a relay involved? If so, where is it? If not, must be wiring or steering column switch. Is this multi-switch difficult to replace?
The repair manual is not forth coming with suggestions. Help?????

Last night i went to pull out and i had trouble steering and it seemed as if my power steering was out. I got my husband and he came out and it seemed fine. He pulled arounnd then all the sudden the steering wheel doesnt want to turn and when it does that the break light comes on. Then we stop continue to go again then just a minute later it does it again. We parked it. We hope someone may have a idea to help us!

When my van over heats it starts while its moving and it runs hot to the point tha it shuts off. I recently had the thermostat & radiator replaced but i was told that the radiator housing was cracked and its leaking anti freeze. Could that be the problem & I've let it get worst by continuing to drive it?
Usually when we start up from park in the Florida Sun, it comes right on and COOLS GREAT. After driving awhile, it stops cooling,and won't start cooling again unless I turn off the switches awhile. Then (usually), when I turn it back on, push the recirculate and a/c buttons, it will cool great again. I had similar problem with other cars, and there was a temperature sending unit which was defective, and nothing wrong with my compressor. NO PROBLEMS with front or rear Blowers.

I have a 1993 Mercury Villager and all of a sudden today when driving the engine will rev and I will lose speed in the middle of driving. The vehicle bucks a little when this happens. What is the problem or things I should check. The oil, transmission fluid, brake fluid, and power steering fluid are all full and fine. This is just so sudden and I have no idea what it is. I think I smell a little burning rubber, could it be a belt?
The problem occurs while driving down the road. I don't know the diagnostic code. it will take several times to get it started.we think it is either the distibutor shaft or the fuel injector is still clogged from cleaning.
no codes the wheel cyclinders on the back brakes was leaking we put news on also put new brake shoes on also bleede the brakes an also put on a new master cyclinder still did same thing put flexable brake line on the left rear still doing the same thing locking up we also bench bleed the master cyclinder

what does it cost to repair a head gasket or would it be more cost effective to replace the whole engine?

WE purchased this mini van with 156,000 miles for a good deal and to see if I like driving a mini van, which I love. The only problem seems to be I will be driving and it just stalls out, sometimes it will restart and go and then sometimes not. We have replaced the fuel fliter and put in a used fuel pump, then it did it again. Seems like it is losing fuel pressure. Do you think we should replace with a new fuel pump and fuel fliter, or do you think it could be the water pump?
Hi - Can't find this particular service topic in the repair estimat section, so just wondering about how much a wheel alignment should cost for a 2001 Mercury Villager Minivan.
Just had the rear brake cylinders and shoes replaced now the vehicle slows down to a stop without applying brakes and the front smells like plastic burning
I would fill up on Monday morning set my cruise control between 65 and 70 get on the highway and drive to work about an hour away. By Wednesday it is on empty and I have to refuel. I do the same thing with my moms van and I don't have to put fuel in it until Friday evening. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks for your time.
