It's a defect with most Explorers and Mountaineers from 2002 to 2006. There was a maintenance recall in 2004 for 2002-2004 models. The factory put the wrong Transmission Fluid in the sealed case. Anyway, if you havent went back to the dealership and had it looked at, it will cause all types of problems in the immediate future.
According to the 1997 Mercury Mountaineer owners manual : Your 4R70W automatic transmission capacity is ( 13.9 quarts ) * that of couse would be for the transmission , torque converter , lines , transmission cooler , etcetera *
I have a 2002 Moutianeer, and not to long ago had a problem with the shifting. It would struggle, then shift real hard into 2nd. I had to have a tramsmission overhaul done. Thank God it was under warrenty.
According to the 1997 Mercury Mountaineer owners manual : ( 13.9 quarts / 13.2 liters ) for the 4R70W automatic transmission ( rear wheel drive and all wheel drive ) ** that would be for the entire system , transmission , converter , lines , etcetera **
would an automatic transmission car jerk when shifting after having had a transmission flush
Since the first model year of the Mercury Mountaineer is the 1997 model it would be ( r134a )
I assume the 2002 Mercury Mountaineer would be the same as a 2002 Ford Explorer ( No , starting with the 2002 model there is no automatic transmission fluid level dipstick ) Ford has a way of checking from underneath the vehicle
rings or seals
Have transmission fluid and filter changed. Checked Transmission mounts
I had my transmission rebuilt on my 2004 Mountaineer. I believe it cost around $1800
a broken dip stick wont cause hard shifting... the engine does not do the any shifting... your problem would be the transmission... check transmission....
That would be the 4.6 liter engine, which takes six quarts. * of 5W-20 according to the 2003 Mercury Mountaineer Owner Guide
An ABS fault.
On a 1997 Mercury Mountaineer : I assume the fuel filter would be in the same location as a 1997 Ford Explorer : ( underneath the Mountaineer , below the drivers door , mounted on the frame rail )
No, bad front wheel bearings would not prevent a transmission from shifting. If your car has bad front wheel bearings you will notice wheel noise or wheel looseness.
the blend door actuater is bad
you would have to see a mechanic about that problem
yes this is how the transmission works is is most generally used to start out in bad weather such as snow to keep the rpms of the vehicle down to provide more traction to the weels to keep them from spinning
Replace your transmission pump or get a new transmission.
If the 1997 Nissan Altima with an automatic transmission is shifting gears too early, it could be that the shift solenoid for the transmission is faulty. Both the shift solenoid and the speed sensor on the transmission should be checked.
Bank 1 is the passenger side of the engine in your Mercury Mountaineer Sensor 1 would be close to the engine before the exhaust enters the catalytic converter ( upstream sensor )
In CT USA, a garage would charge 1 hour labor to replace the rear brake pads on that Mountaineer.
bearning on front breaks burn out
No , ABS is the anti-lock brake system
