Mercury Problems

Camshaft Sensor Magnet may Damage Synchronizers

The magnet for the camshaft position sensor may fall out of its mount and damage the synchronizers. This causes long crank times when starting the engine and may cause the Check Engine Light to illuminate. If this happens, both the magnets and the synchronizers need to be replaced.

Check Engine Light Illumination

The check engine light may come on due to failure of the Variable Camshaft Timing (VCT) solenoids. The VCT solenoids will need to be replaced if they are the reason the check engine light came on.
