#1 of 7 vehicle jerking, stalled/Mercury villager 99
Sep 25, 2011 (2:55 pm)
I have some problems of Mercury villager, built in 98/99, in last 6 months. I had a mechanic told me that a few sensors had problem, including knock sensor whick is a most expensive, $500 cost, after he scanned with a instrument when th engine light came on. I tried to have a mechanic to replace the knock sensor and fuel pump ( finding out later he did not replaced it), because another mechanic said 'you can tell if someone replace it'. Performance of vehicle did not get better and engine came on again.
More than 2 weeks ago, I had my friend who worked at home, to inspect my vehicle and he said it needed a tune up and replaced fuel filter because my vehicle started jerking, stalled and quit. Same problem happened again, 1 day after I picked my vehicle.
He is reluctant to take a look again when I returned the vehicle to him.
Oh, I forgot to mention it. The vehicle started jerking and stalled after I ran it for 5-6 miles. Should I bring it to dealer to have a computer check?

Go to a place like Autozone and have them use a code reader to diagnose the problem(s).
Some of these vans are known to have distributor failures, and if you have some mechanical ability you could look into it yourself, if not, have your friend take a look at it.
#3 of 7 idle slow, die and engine came on

Thank you for someone's reply to my previous question this morning.
My another question is what is happened if distributor failures. My vehicle Mercury villager 98 or 99 became jerking, idle was slow, engine light came on and die after I ran it 5 or 6 miles. Fortunately, I could crank over again and kept it running in 20 mile mph to a safer place.
I am appreciated if any one could give me some advice.

As a previous poster said, go to autozone or other parts store and have them read the faults. Autozone will give you a printed output so there will be no confusion. You can report that here and see if anyone can diagnose your problem.
I think that there are many, many possible causes. The fuel filter was a reasonable guess, but just a guess nonetheless.
#5 of 7 sensors

I found that the screen of scanner showed 4 sensors, P325 & P1336, and other two showed the same sensors/arrow up & down after the engine light came on.
The problem showed the same when the vehicle started at beginning fine, but the idle became rough and stalled after I kept running more than 5 miles. I tried to put injetor cleaner, gas treatment, and the other one which the bottle is yellow, into gas tank everytime when I filled the gas tank
more than half.
May I have someone give me some idea?

P0325 is a knock sensor code. If I remember right, this has to do with the distributor cap. It's a common failure on this vehicle.
P1336 - pertains to the crankshaft position sensor not operating properly. From what I have read, this may able as simple as replacing the CKP or could indicate an issue with the ECU.
Hopefully someone can give you more information on the P1336
