I too had a problem in heat last week driving into high altitude. I have 1995 Villager with over 100,000 miles. Van just died while driving with air on and into hills. Tow truck driver said I was six vehicle that day with similar problem. He suggested that it was "Vapor Lock," however, I have heard this does not exist on newer vehicles anymore. Even though, he turned the gas cap slightly and the van worked okay for remainder of weekend in altitude. Also suggested that after filling up tank in lower elevation and than rising to over 7000 feet contributed to problem. My mechanic did not think this was problem but will not be able to recreate problem in lower elevation. So, is it a vacuum issue, emissions problem, gas cap, anyone have a clue?

Good luck, Richbal. By the way, typing in ALL CAPS makes it look like you're shouting at readers, so it's best to take your caps lock when you post.

I have had the motor mounts replaced by the dealer under warrenty once. I have replaced them myself once and currently need to do it AGAIN! (along with the transmission mount) There is no trick that I know of to prevent them from breaking, at least the work is fairly quick and easy. Do not worry about dealer or after market quality because the parts store mounts lasted longer than both of the dealer sets.

#1945 of 2519 2000 Mercury Villager Cruise Control Problems
Jul 22, 2005 (10:13 am)
I recently purchased a used 2000 Mercury Villager and the Cruise Control does not work. I looked at it and it is definately different from any cruise control I have ever seem. All of the relays are internal and the vaccum tank is seperate from the main unit. I have been unable to find any wiring diagrams which specifically show the electrical circuits associated with the cruise control unit. Any ideas? or troubleshooting ideas. Thanks

You need to find some electrical wiring diagrams specifically for your 2000 Villager. It is a different bird from previous models and has some different wiring than you would expect. Buy some heavy duty brake pads that has good heat dissipation. Also replace both front and rear brakes at the some time. Lubricate your gas pedal linkage with WD-40 both inside the vehicle and under the hood. Also check to see if the spring that returns your pedal to its normal position is broken or weak. It is located on the engine. Knock sensors do not typically fail, they just get covered with carbon. So remove the sensor and clean it. Good luck

Our 2002 Villager has a bad vibration upon braking. I pulled the front wheels today to take a look it. The pads have a lot of life left, and the rotors 'look' fine.
They don't cost much, so I think I'll put some new rotors on.
Seems rotors can't be re surfaced like they could 20 years ago.
I see two Torx bolts on the back of the calipers.
My question is: what is holding on the rotor?
Do I need to remove the wheel bearing bolt?
Any advice appreciated, I don't have a manual for the van.
#1948 of 2519 Can anyone help me with obtaining a remote program sequence?
Jul 22, 2005 (8:39 pm)
I just purchased a used 1999 Mercury Villager Estate. The vehicle only came with one remote control, so today I visited the local Lin. Merc. Dealer and bought a 2nd remote. The mechanic's however could not program the remote, even after several tries. What the did was put the key in and out of the ignition 6 times and then said they were to hit the unlock or lock button to program it. However after several attempts, the remote still remains unprogrammed and unusable. Is there anyone out there that might know the correct way to program this remote? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Ü

1) While inside the vehicle, close and lock all the doors.
2) Insert and remove the key from the ignition at least 6 times within 10 seconds to enter the programming mode. The parking lamps will flash to indicate that the programming mode has been entered.
3) Turn the key to the accessory position. All previous key codes will now be erased.
4) Press any button on the remote transmitter once. The parking lamps will flash twice to acknowledge acceptance.
5) to enter additional remote transmitters, unlock and then lock the driver side door using the master window/door lock/unlock switch.
6) Press any button on the additional transmitters. The parking lamps will flash twice to acknowledge acceptance.
7) Open the driver door to exit the programming mode; the parking lamps will flash twice to confirm exiting the programming mode.
Good luck! Report back if this works.

It's been a few months since I had mine off my '99 Quest, but once you remove the Torx bolts and move the caliper out of the way (C-clamping the piston), the rotor will slip right off. Ok, it may take some gentle nudging with a mallet. You don't need to remove the wheel bearing bolt.
Most rotors can still be turned once I think, but it may not be cost effective.
