Mercury Milan Problems

Power Steering Fluid Leakage

Power steering fluid may leak at the power steering pump, line, and/or steering rack. The lines may not be clamped tightly enough, causing a leak. Add new clamps and seals to the power steering line to the pump and to the steering rack.

Harsh or Delayed Shifting of Automatic Transmission

The automatic transmission may develop shifting concerns. On lower mileage vehicles, upgrading the software in the powertrain control module (PCM) and the transmission control module (TCM) may correct the problem. As the mileage increases, internal transmission damage can occur. Repairs could involve replacement of the valve body or a complete transmission rebuild. Whenever major transmission repairs are made, it is important to be sure the PCM and the TCM have the latest software updates to help prevent these issues from reoccurring.

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.
