You need to get an OBDII scanner. They run about $80 to $130 and you just hook them up to the diagnostic port under the steering wheel and it gives you the diagnostic code.

Having the code will do you little good, if you don't know what to do with it, or have the expensive information and expensive equipment (not to mention Know-how) to fix it.

You could also go to Auto Zone and have them check the codes for free. That way when you take it in to the shop, if they all of a sudden tell you something that didn't show up from the Auto Zone check you can question them. Remember there are some shady people out there. Not all but there are some out there.

Freon is added to the lower pressure line port. It is the only port a refill kit will fit. I suggest taking it to a shop that does A/C repair if you do not know that already.

Try taking the cover off of the fuse box, and then looking inside of the cover. Many times, there is a chart on the inside of the cover, indicating the fuse locations!

I recommend Haynes Repair Manual. I just done one this weekend. It is pretty standard stuff. Lots of taking apart stuff. Manual # is 64200. It is the same as a Mercury Villager.

There has never been a NASA exploration mission to the surface of Mercury, but the MESSENGER spacecraft has been in orbit and taking pictures of the planet since 2008.Before that, in 1974, the "Mariner 10" probe took photos of Mercury.

A barometer measures air pressure. A mercury one does so by taking a tube full of mercury which is inverted into a dish of mercury. The height of mercury remaining in the tube is a measure of the air pressure.

That type of thermometer has mercury in it, which is very heat sensitive. When used for taking a temperature, the heat from the body causes the mercury to rise. The amount the level of the mercury rises is determined by the body's temperature; the higher the temp, the higher the mercury rises.
