We were on our way to Jamestown (it is on a major highway I-86) to a doctor's appointment with our 7 year old son. Our van suddenly geared up and then we lost all acceleration. We are thankful that there was not a semi-truck or car behind us because we would of definitly been in a accident. We had no previous warning. I am gonna try and contact someone higher up in the Ford line. For as many of these that are going bad and us that have no warranty that is alot of money to pay out of pocket not to mention we are all risking our lives that have this mercury montery.

I know it has been awhile since you wrote in, and you may not ever receive this, but I wanted to mention or ask if you knew that the Ford Freestar is the exact same vehicle as the one you have only without the Mercury name on the body. Keep posted on the case that has started with the Fords transmissions. Seems that many more people have the Fords than the Mercury. Just a suggestion to you if you still care to keep informed. Thanks.

My in-laws have a 2004 Monterey that they were driving down the road and the A-frame just broke....Could this be related to the trans-axle issue..Anybody else know of any problems like this?
I find no recalls on this issue.

My 2004 Monterey with 72K was diagnosed with OBD code PO401, This code referred to the EGR valve, or the DPFE sensor may be defective. I removed the EGR valve and there was no indication of carbon deposit. I was informed that the DPFE sensor was in the rear of the engine which is not easily visible. My question is how do I gain access to this unit, and what checks do i make to determine that it is defective. Your suggestion will be appreciated.

I had the same OBD code on my 2004 Mercury Monterey. I replaced the EGR valve, at a cost of less than $50. I am no mechanic, but it took me less than 30 minutes to replace. It has been about a month, and the engine light has not come one again since the EGR valve was replaced.
#898 of 918 Re 2004 Mercury Monterey jerking under load
Jun 21, 2010 (9:08 pm)
My 2004 Monterey with 82k has recently began jerking or bucking when moving off, or under load travelling up to 40- 45mph. It runs smoothly when cruising. I changed the gas filter recently as I suspect that it could be fuel related, but it made no difference. It also idles a bit irregular. Does anyone have an idea or suggestion as what possible could be causing this problem, or what to check for. Your input will be appreciated.
