    poor acceleration at high rpm, doesn't shift

    2004 AWD Mounty 4.6L with 150K on the clock. If I drive normal (up to 3000rpm) acceleration and shifting are fine, idle is perfect. If I floor it, it goes up to 4000-4500 rpms and just hangs, doesn't shift for a few seconds or unless i take my foot off the gas. Seems like it doesn't have any...

    Anyone know part numbers or even better where to get fuel tank strap bolts for 2004 Mountaineer. I'm trying to replace fuel pump and I can't get bolts off they are spinning in place, so I'm going to have to cut the straps and then cut the bolts. I can't seem to find the part online. To make...

    muffler bolt and nut

    I'm replacing my muffler and exhaust pipes. I ordered a walker ss muffler and pipes, but I also ordered the factory bolt and nut. The nut doesn't seem to fit the bolt. The part number is HN1 but it's been replaced by N802641S-441, it has a flange welded to the nut and when I thread the nut...

    yellow fluid leaking rear axle

    I noticed some yellow drops in the snow last week after moving my 04 mounty (122K miles). I figured since it was -10 degrees in the mountains, that something leaked due to the extreme cold. Well it snowed again last night and it was only ~30, after I moved my car I noticed the yellow drops...

    AC not ice cold anymore but pressures look ok

    I took the mounty for a road trip, it's 90 out and working well 50 at vent with fan on low. Earlier at gas station it was 70 out, popped the hood and found just a little ice on dryer.

    AC not ice cold anymore but pressures look ok

    It was 80 out partly cloudy, fan high, recir on, no outside fan. The engine was running for 10 minutes but not with a fast idle, is there another way to do this on the electronic throttle body without sitting in the car with my foot on gas? Today was 80 and cloudy out, I was idling for a...

    AC not ice cold anymore but pressures look ok

    112K so about time something goes bad (besides bearings and ball joints). I never used to hit the recirculator button, but now i do since it drops temp from 65 to 55-60 at vent. I might just hold out another season and then make an attempt to rebuild the system.

    AC not ice cold anymore but pressures look ok

    My AC used to be so cold I could never have it on full blast. This year its just cool air blowing and when it hit 90 out it was a little too uncomfortable in the car. Thermometer in AC vent showed about 55-60 degrees, when it was 80 out. Checked pressures its about 32 low and 172 high, I...

    2004 Explorer starting rattling under the hood

    It could also be serpentine belt tensioner, my 04 was squeaking when cold. After the belt and tensioner replacement it's quiet, This is a inexpensive fix if it's the cause of your noise.

    2004 Suggested maintenance

    What is the suggested maintenance for a 2004 Mountaineer AWD V8? The mercury website and the owners manual both say slightly different things. Should the transmission fluid be changed? What transmission is in the 3rd Gen?

    Mounty question

    I've been looking for a mounty for the past two weeks. I noticed on two of them the passenger rear door does not line up at the rear wheel well. Is this common on mounties? I think I'm crazy looking at buying a SUV with gas at $3+ a gallon, but maybe I can get a good deal.

    92 EB worth fixing?

    a/c is r12 and the compressor is dead, so i'm looking at a complete conversion. I tried to fix the ball joints before, I had the whole assembly torn down but I couldn't knock the knuckle free. Tried with a 2lb shot peen and a pickle fork. I would assume a 10lb sledge would do the trick.

    92 EB worth fixing?

    I have 247k on the engine and ~70K on rebuilt engine. I am relocating to south carolina for work for up to a year. The only reason i am asking this is because the a/c doesn't work and I don't know if I want to tolerate the heat down there. Is it worth fixing? These are the major things wrong...
