#10 of 97 Mercury Moutaineer03 - Oil leak problem
Jan 11, 2007 (9:32 pm)
Bought a 2003 mountaineer 6 months ago (Premier -V8). Recently I noticed some oil spots on the driveway, maybe an inch or 2 in diameter. However, the spots are not towards the front end......they appear to be right by the rear wheels. Almost in the center, between the 2 rear wheels. Lets just say I'm not a mechanically inclined person whatsoever.....but I normally try n search on the internet to atleast get some idea of what the problem maybe....so when I take the care for repairs, I have some background info so to not get totally taken by the mechanic. Any ideas/suggestions would be greatly appreciated....thanks !
#12 of 97 Front End Noise

I have a well maintained 03 Mountaineer. Tire have less than 25,000 miles and the wheel ailgnment is good. I have roar coming from the front end the noise remains that same no matter what the speed. This noise is even more ntoiceable when I make a left hand turn. When I turn to the right it is not as noticeable but still there. Anyone have any ideas????

I had this probelm too ( I think). Mine was an axle seal and needed replacement on the driver side. My local mechanic fixed it of $270 while the dealer wanted $700 to repair both. I've put 20,000 mile on since. We now have 87000 on our 02.

I have some problems in my 97 Mountaineer with the antenna.
Due to the cold weather it was frozen and I pushed it down. Now i can hear the motor but the mast does not move. Somebody can help me?

You need a new mast, not expensive, even from the dealer. Easy to install, directions come with it.
