Checking on purchasing a 2005 Mercury Montego with 80k
we have put an new oil filter, and oil in, we have put a new senor after cleaning the one that was in there, all these things because my car has been idling when it's damp/wet outside. The first time was when it was really hot outside, my car dies at stop lights and stop signs after idling. it shakes badly. we're really not sure what the problem is because no one has been able to get a code.

Sounds like something is dragging under the bottom possibly rear driver side. After reaching 35+ miles you can't hear it anymore until you slow down. Also sounds like the rear brakes are scrubbing, any ideas on what it could be? Balljoints, rotors, etc???
Recently my Montego would turn over but not start. Had it towed on a flatbed to Lincoln/Mercury dealer thinking it was the fuel pump. Turns out it was the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) which I was told was under recall so there was no charge. What is the PCM, where is it and what is its function?

Sometimes it doesn't act up, but other times it will do so a lot. No codes in system. Mostly does it when ac is on. I am a retired Dealership Tech.
