Help please! I have a 1998 Mercury Mountaineer AWD 5.0 V8. When driving it sounds as though someone is beating the bottom of the truck with a hammer. Any ideas???
If the name is not important to you and you like the looks of the Merc, you can actually save money by going with the Mountaineer. That's my experience. I'm on my 3rd Exploder and none of them were branded "Ford Explorer". The first was a Mazda Navajo (2 door Explorer Sport) that had a better price, option package, and warranty than Ford.

I got a "great" deal . . . I had a 1998 Explorer XLT 4WD that I bought new in August 1998. It was a decent truck but I did have some problems with it, including an ongoing musty smell in ...

After two months, I finally acquired a "Mercury Accessories" catalog to order a front end cover for my '02 Mountaineer. I had my local dealer place the order for me using the Part # provided and the part returned is for a 1998 Mountaineer. This has happended on three separate occasions and I'm stumped (as the dealer is) on how to resolve it. Part 19A414 is specified in the book. Don't ... Read More
