About Mercury Villager

As a rebadged variant of the Nissan Quest - a product of a joint between Ford and Nissan, Mercury Villager was built by the Japanese multinational automobile manufacturer Nissan Motor Company Ltd but sold under Ford Motor Company's entry-level premium brand Mercury between 1992 and 2002 as a minivan. Originally introduced as the competitor to Honda Odyssey, Ford Windstar and Nissan Quest, Village slotted between Ford's aging rear-wheel drive can and Ford Windstar. But still after being manufactured for two generations, the production of Village was ended and it was replaced by the Mercury Monterey in the end.
The first-generation Mercury Villager was produced from 1992 to 1998 under the codename VX54. It was offered in only one body style, 3-door minivan but it came in three trim levels: GS, LS and the luxury Nautica Special Edition. Though receiving a fresh for 1996 model year with new exterior styling and an updated dash equipped with a passenger-side airbag, Mercury Villager had been powered by a 3.0 L V6 rated at 151 horsepower and this engine sent power through a 4-speed automatic transmission. The more recent Village spanned from 1999 to 2002 and was available in three trim levels: Base, Sport and luxury Estate. As the first Mercury model to offer a rear-seat entertainment system, Mercury Villager then got power from a 3.3 L V6 producing 180 hp and 200 lb-ft of torque.

Mercury Villager Common Problems & Maintenance Tips

Being larger than a standard short-wheelbase minivan but smaller than an extended van, Mercury Villager was also noted for its unique rearmost seat. But since the youngest Village is at least fifteen years old, you need to pay more attention to these common problems on your Villager:
First, the primary issue that Mercury Villager drivers have ever met is the engine failure. Since the engine is the heart of a vehicle, once anything wrong happens to the engine, your vehicle is also at the risk of breaking down. Therefore, these recognizable and simply symptoms provided by experienced Villager drivers will help you a lot in diagnosing and solving this problem as soon as possible. This issue often starts with noises from the engine, burning oil smell in the compartment and leaking oil on the ground. Then it evolves in the engine running roughly, misfiring, stalling and even suffering from starting issues. If you notice a major decrease in engine performance, loss of power while acceleration and fuel efficiency, you need to inspect the Villager engine mount, motor and transmission mount, oxygen sensors, and valve cover gasket.
Second, for Mercury Villager drivers, transmission failure is also a common and serious issue that troubles them a lot. Because it seems to arise unexpectedly until drivers feel unable to drive the vehicle. In fact, many Villager drivers have not much knowledge about working principle of automobiles so that when drivability issue appears due to transmission failure, it is often too late. These symptoms of transmission failure such as difficulty shifting gears, indicator not matching the gear, vehicle not turning off, starting in another gear or refusing to go into any gear as well as leaking transmission fluids could be attributed to the Villager transmission pan, shift cable, transfer case seal, automatic transmission filter and automatic transmission shifter.
However, an absolute safe and comfortable driving experience brought by your Mercury Villager needs every part of it working properly all the time. And all these can only be achieved by performing routine maintenance on some vulnerable auto parts as they could not last as long as the vehicle could due to fragile materials and harsh working conditions. Therefore, you are advised to add the Villager wiper arm, windshield wiper, wiper blade, seat belt, fog light, headlight, antenna and cabin air filter to the routine maintenance list.
