YES!!! I have a 2003 Mercury Mountaineer and I have the same problem! It stalls out usually when I come to a stop. Not all the time, yet often, maybe twice a month. Very annoying, and I've at it in to get looked at and nothing. Now I'm having problems with the AC, dealer says it's $1500 to fix the broken motor. My father has the same car same year and the same problem! Call the customer service # and report your problem! They say that's the only way they know about issues people are having with their vehicles is for owners to call and have their complains documented! 1-800-521-4140.

I have a 2002 Mountaineer. When filling with gas, I have to trickle the gas in or the gas pump will kick off. I checked the filler and vent hose for obstructions....none. I then bypassed the evap solenoid (I believe) and evap canister (both located w/n a couple inches of each other at the rear of the gas tank)....and that seemed to work. Would this be a culprit of the canister or solenoid?
When the solenoid and canister are connected, I can blow in the end of the vent hose connected up by the fill neck and air easily passes into the tank, so I was confused how the vent hose could be getting restricted.
#25 of 97 Mountaineer Locks
Sep 24, 2007 (2:19 pm)
My 1997 Mountaineer doors will not lock or unlock when pressing on the door lock switch on the driver's side door panel. The doors will all lock from the passinger side switch; but will not unlock. Otherwise, all the doors will lock and unlock properly, ie with the key and manually. Where can I find a diagram that will show me where to look for the problem(s)?

Did you get your issue resolved? I have a 2002, same issue. Very frustrating.

#28 of 97 Gumout Worked for me!

I posted this on my message thread this weekend.
I put 1 bottle of Gumout Fuel Cleaner (From Target) and once it worked through it (it stalls a lot when it's working apparently) I have not had 1 stall in 3 days with about 200+ miles. My 2002 Mountaineer has 87K miles on it and it was stalling on the freeway at 70+ mph. Ford dealer could not find anything wrong with it!

If your vehicle is stalling at idle, you may need to clean or replace the Idle Air Control Valve. It is accessible on the top of the engine. If you choose to replace it, you must get it from the dealer, as the stores I called did not carry this part. I believe I paid about $90. I cleaned mine a few times but the issue kept repeating, once replaced I have not had a stall at idle for over a year. Hope this helps...
#30 of 97 Can anyone tell me how to replace the fuel filter on a 2002?
