You could have the 2.0 L - DOHC - 4 cylinder or a 2.5 L - DOHC - V6 engine
There could be several reasons why a 1998 Mercury Mystique is overheating. The radiator may have a leak, the thermostat may be stuck, or the head gaskets could be blown.
You could have either 8 inch or 9 inch
It could have a pluged fuel filter or a pluged fuel inlet screen. Make sure the fuel pump has a full 12 volts.
It could be a loose connection, it could be a problem with the speakers, or it could be a problem with the head unit.
You could change the spark plugs, sprak plug wires, computer chip.
could be the coil pack but did u check the timing belt .does it spin real fast, belt could be broken thus no spark
auto or man? auto change trans filter and add new trans fluid I'd use lucis trans fluid. cable could be streached
you mount the mercury container in the hood so that when it tilts gravity pulls the mercury down a tube and connects a cathode with an anode.
Ignition switch may be defective.
it could of been a short in the wiring in the engine compartment or you had a fuel leak and it got into wires or the ignition system
You could have either the 4.0 liter SOHC - V6 engine or the 5.0 liter OHV - V8 engine
Could be the switch or the resistor and or the fan itself , There was a recall on this but to late to get it now , All are easy fixes
Yes, it could cause flooding, that's when too much fuel gets into the engine. You need to replace the pressure regulator.
how many miles on this puppy? there known for fuel pumps but if it seems to be turning over faster than usual it could be the timing belt
i have a 2000 mercury marquie with a 4'6 engine at twenty five or thirty it seems to buck/ could it be a tps senor going bad thsnks tim
P1131 = Insufficient switching O2 Bank 1 Sensor 1 Sensor/lean. Could be a B1 S1 O2 sensor going bad.
Could be sucking air into intake.
We figured it out . The switch that controls the dash brightness was turned all of the way up! After adjusting it and restarting the car , the dome light went out.
This refers to the second oxygen sensor on Bank 1. Bank 1 is the same side of the engine that cylinder 1 is on, the very front cylinder on the drivers side. It could need to be replaced, or there could be a short to voltage on the O2 signal circuit, or it could also be that the connector has been corroded, and needs to just be cleaned. I believe this code is the same for all vehicles.
my check engine light stays on and the o/d light blinks....what could this mean?
could be a throtle positon sensor. This is a sensor that tells the computer how far down the throtle is being pushed.
Depending on which engine you have, an alternator could range from $140-195 (USD) at Autozone.com.
I have a 2.0 1995 Mercury mystique the battery charge light was on no output on old alternator. Replaced alternator No output from new alternator "charge light out" (wiggle test wires& re-check wires) at alternator *still no output* is there a fuse that could be the problem or just another bad alternator... I would check the alternator plug before getting another alternator, it may be bad. And is a lot cheaper to replace.
