problem #4

Mountaineer 4.0L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 170,000 miles

The OD light started flashing on, along with check engine. This went on for a while but nothing seemed to be wrong with it. Then, 2 days ago, the front end started locking up on right turns and stalling on left turns. My wife said it was making a noise right before. Well, crawling under it there is a bolt, gear, or something metal sticking out of the front end stump.

Update from Jul 15, 2016: We have decided to not repair the vehicle and bought a new one. Hello Jeep goodbye Ford, or in this case Mercury.

Engine light has been on since I purchased the vehicle, about 6 months ago I had it looked at by my mechanic and he could find nothing wrong. There must be a problem somewhere. Anybody else have this problem? I so I would like to know what was done for the repair.

Not sure what to say about this problem. I have followed the manual and reset the light and every time after about 50 or so miles, the light return.
