My 1994 Mercury Villager is practically rebuilt and now I have a major problem that no one seems to be able, OR does not want to find, and repair everything "around the problem". The car will stall out when driven to the point that it just starts to show the temp gauge moving up. It runs ONLY when it is cold. It will die on the road when it starts to heat up just slightly. I've had both sides of the exhaust manifold changed, to so many other things, including the Mercury dealer doing a diagnostic, and I found lies in the paper work.I just don't know what to do, and I need this car desperately. Can anyone help?

Hello -

To better assist you please tell me if your model is a GS or LS. Also your engine size in liter and the 8th digit of your VIN.

Will you be doing the work yourself?

Do you know how to pull the codes on the car?

Can you list what has been changed?

The lies in the paperwork. Have you talked to them about it - how did you know it was a lie - what was done about it?

We will do the best we can. Please answer the above.

Hello -

Sorry you are having some problems. No car and in a state that sounds like you moved to is a band combo. Hopefully your job and family are doing well.

I think there is hope. But also please remember you do have about 211K miles on your vehicle. It has been good to you.

There will start to be more and more problems I would think. That is a lot of miles so things going bad will be normal.

You forgot to give me your engine size in liter.

Doing the work yourself.I take it you won't be.

My thought is possible your MAF sensor which causes stalling and or your Engine Coolant sensor. I can send you the specs to ohm them out. Do you have a digital volt meter?

The fuel pump. That is a lot of miles on a pump. So I would also expect that to go bad if not already. Did anyone check the fuel pump pressure?

Next time it stalls, can you pull a plug wire off of the spark plug and insert something into the end of it and have someone try to start the car and have the metal object really close to a piece of metal on the engine and see if you are getting a good strong popping blue spark. Don't have your hands on any part of the metal! If there is no spark, then it is electrical.

If you are getting good spark then spray some starting fluid in the throttle body and try to start it and see if it tries to start then.
