About Mercury Marauder

Being used as a name for three times, Mercury Marauder was built by Mercury, which is a division of the great American multinational automaker Ford Motor Company that sells entry-level premium vehicles under the Mercury brand, between 1963 and 1965, from 1969 to 1970 and from 2003 through 2004 as a full-size car. Originally introduced as the Mercury counterpart to the Ford Galaxie 500XL from 1963 to 1965, the most famous and most recent Marauder was a high-performance variant of the full-size Mercury Grand Marquis bearing a revived nameplate. Since most drivers only have the 2003 Marauder and have more interest in this one, we will focus on the third-generation one.
The third-generation Mercury Marauder was revived for the 2003 model year after a 33-year hiatus. Built based on the Ford Panther platform, Marauder was introduced as early as the 2002 Chicago Auto Show as a concept car. It was offered in only one body style, a 4-door sedan and shared brakes and many suspension components with the Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor. Equipped with blacked-out grille, dark-tinted headlights and taillights, large five-spoke chrome wheels and dual chrome exhaust tips as well as sportier floor-mounted selector and bucket seat and a center console, Mercury Marauder was powered by a 4.6 L V8 rated at 302 horsepower and 318 pound-feet of torque, and this engine sent power through 4-speed automatic transmission to the rear wheels.

Mercury Marauder Common Problems & Maintenance Tips

Offering a soft, comfortable ride under normal conditions as well as respectable performance, Mercury Marauder is still quite popular and favored by many performance enthusiasts. But as time goes by, these common problems will appear on your Marauder:
First, engine failure caused by cooling system failure is what Mercury Marauder drivers meet most during driving. Perhaps, some Marauder drivers have not realized the seriousness of cooling system failure and underestimate the consequences it could bring. In fact, once the cooling system starts to fail, for example, the coolant starts to leak, the engine will keep at a high operating temperature and overheat a lot, which will speed up engine's failing speed. After a while, the engine will run roughly, misfire, stall and even suffer from starting issues such as hard starting or inability to start. Gradually, you will feel a complete loss of power when acceleration and excessive oil consumption. The Low Coolant Light and Check Engine Light are the most obvious signs for you to inspect the Marauder intake manifold gasket, cooling hose, coolant reservoir, head gasket, thermostat and thermostat gasket.
Second, for Mercury Marauder drivers, braking system failure is another headache. In fact, even though every driver knows how vital a well-functioning braking system, most of them do not have an idea about braking system failure. In order to enjoy a safe ride, you might as well learn about how to diagnose and solve this issue based on the symptoms and solutions provided by experienced Marauder owners. First of all, the brakes will make some abnormal noises when being depressed if they have something wrong; then they will respond poorly, brake pedal becomes pulsating, the brake rotors are covered by marks, parking brake cable could not hold the vehicle properly, rear brakes are locked, especially on the wet surfaces; leaking brake fluids on the ground and both Brake Warning Light and Parking Brake Light come on. All these symptoms could be attributed to the Marauder brake pad set, brake disc, brake drum, parking brake cable, brake line and hydraulic hose.
Never underestimate the function of routine maintenance on vulnerable auto parts on your Mercury Marauder, it could be your lifesaver.
