I have a 1996 Mercury Villager Nautica. Added 4 quarts of transmission fluid because the stick showed it to be very low. Van will not go in reverse.
It has been shifting hard
When your driving it don't shift right or idle right when you come to a stop
When idling it misses and quickly engine does
Misses while driving
When slowing or stopping engine dies
Giving it gas helps but it still misses
Diagnostics listed knock sensor
My air filter compartment does not align and seal because the plastic side & bottom is warped. Consequently, i have large gaps on the side and bottom of it. I can even see the filter inside. Does this affect the cars performance? My car runs rough when I put it in gear (chug chug, shake like it wants to die)and sounds like it is mis-firing even at high speeds. Help please. RW
