1997 Mercury Villager GS from North America
It's a good van, but it has its problems
As of July 9th 2004 my 1997 Mercury Villager has been at the dealer. They are really having a hard time trying to figure out why the check engine light keeps coming on about every 50-100 miles. They think that they got the problem fixed and then the light comes back on. They have had the van for almost two (2) months and have not got a clue what could be wrong with it. Any idea's? they have checked everything, including haveing ford rep. from detroit to come and look at it as well.
This is really a good van.
However it does have its problems so be aware!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I also have that van and the same problem which cannot be resolved so I just cut a piece of black electrical tape and put it over that annoying light prob solved.

We Also owned the same van. The dealership had ours for almost 2 months for the same engine light trouble, they got it to go off, only to have it come back on while on our way back home (35 miles away). But by then the dealership was already closing, so they said pull over, shut it off and let it cool, we may wreck the engine. So Tuesday Morning, we had to towed back, they said it was the Transmission sensor. We finally go that van back and let it go for whatever we could get out of it, it only had 19,000 miles on it. Good luck--hope you get it fixed, otherwise I suggest get rid of it.
