also, the dealer wants apx $7000.00 for a new engine when
the car is bearly worth $3500.00. It has apx 143,000 miles
right now. I'm into the car about $9500.00 since I bought it in 2001. I've printed up everything I can find so far
on this problem with the Quest/Villager & it makes me sick
to have to think that the dealer may get away with this.
If I want a rebuilt engine I have to go elsewhere. Whatever
I do there will be very little warranty ont it.

#4 of 164 Quest/Villager Engin Running Rough
Jul 26, 2007 (2:42 pm)
I have 97' Quest GXE with 150K miles and experiencing engine running rough. At times the CEL light comes on with following two codes:
P0325 Knock Sensor 1 Curcuit
P0300 Random/Multiple Cylinder Misfire
Engine running rough seems to be worse when hot. I've seen from other sources that O2 sensor may be a culprit but then if O2 sensor is bad the code should reflect that.
Any help would be appreciated.
#5 of 164 Knocking when engine is Hot
Aug 02, 2007 (10:09 am)
I have '97 GXE and have few problems with CEL off and on. One thing I am noticing currently is that in Summer time when outside temperature is high, and I've driven for more then an hour. Especially on the freeway sitting in traffic jam with an air on.
Engine looses power drastically; engine knocks whenever an accelerator is pressed and engine temperature rises (not to the dangerous level but higher then normal). But then when the stop & go traffic is freed, the problem goes away.
Anyone with a similar experience what the problem might be? Thanks inadvance for your reply.

Hi, i have a 98 mercury villager with the same sorta problem. 3lt v6 with 269000 kms. Ive spent 2800 dollars before we found the problem. The problem was a loose ground wire on the computer. The simptoms were it started fine and ran fine until it got warm, then it sputtered/misfired and the rpms would dance. I changed the o2 sensor, and the knock sensor and cap and rotor plugs,wires, fuel injector flush, catalitic convertor before the ford dealer had to call the ford hotline for help. hope this helps. D

This is a valuable information. I am not sure exactly what I have to do. Do I look at my negative black battery cable to be certain there is a tight connection or check the computer ground wire? If computer ground, where is the computer and what computer are you referring to. Thanks again for your reply.

The ford technician said it was the onboard computer ground wire. I think it is somewhere inside the van maybe under the dash. Ive spent thousands trying to fix this problem. I even paid to have a stupid knock sensor done with no differance. The ford dealer was flabbergasted as to why my van was so messed up. They paid for a rental and had to call the Ford Hotline for advice- they told them to check for loose ground wires on the ECM .. Sure enough it works good now.

It's b een a while since I have had to convert metric to english but 80,000 km is about 50,000 miles. I thought all 2004 Quests were covered by 5 yr/60k miles bumper to bumper warranty as part of the recall in 2004. Even if you are not in America, aren't all Quest still covered by 5 yr/60k miles powertrain warranty. I would think that the warranty would cover it. As long as you have had regular oil changes and change the coolant, you should be covered. The transmission fluid is not required to be changed until 60k miles.
What issues are having that would cost $15k?
