2002 Mercury Mountaineer AWD V8 Start Up, Rev, & Quick Tour - 99k
Start Up & Rev of a 2002 Mercury Mountaineer AWD V8.
This truck has a 4.6L SOHC V8 Churning 240 HP while paired to a 5 Spd auto.
This truck had 99k & I think it's the best sounding explorer/mountaineer V8
of the 2002-2005 generation that I've ever heard. Engine revved smoothly.
Doesn't seem to have a rev limiter either cause I took it passed 5500 RPM.
This engine is used in many other Fords like the Lincoln Town Car, Crown
Vic, Mustang, & etc.
Transmission Problems (Mountaineer/Explorer)
I own a 2002 Mercury Mountaineer and I have been experiencing some tranny
problems with it. My transmission refuses to shift past 45 mph causing a
lot of problems for me. According to many auto review websites this car and
the Ford Explorer counterpart are not strangers to this sort of problem.
Differential Problems (Mountaineer/Explorer)
My truck has been making this constant ticking sound from one of the rear
tires. I took it into a mechanic and found out the rear differential was
making all that noise. It turns out a few teeth have broken off the gears
and metal shavings were coming off as a result of both poor lubrication and
harsh winters. In addition that I had to replace many other parts on the
truck as they were rusted out. My rear axle was rusted out and on the verge
of collapse and my CV boot and driveshaft had to be replaced.
Total repair cost: $1100.00 (with used/refurbished parts)
I brought this vehicle up from Georgia where snow and salt are practically
nonexistent to a place battered by harsh winters and road salt. Vehicle was
spotless when brought up but it was eaten up in the course of three years.
Always rustproof your car, do this for the longevity of the parts in your
vehicle or else you will face costly repairs in the future.
