Mercury ProblemsIntake Manifold May Crack Leaking Coolant Behind the Alternator

No recall was issued for this problem but Ford did extend the warranty to seven years on some models from the date of purchase.
Binding of the shifter slider can make the transmission shifter difficult to move. Replacing the bezel should fix this problem.
