Motor and Rear Axle problems
By scooter on
2002 Mercury Mountaineer AWD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
Had to replace front rotors and brakes when we first bought it. Makes a roaring noise because real axle is bad. At 110,000 miles lost all oil and motor went out, oil warning light never came on so I had no idea I had lost all the oil. We replace the motor and now have tranny problems. Also it has a water leak somewhere and have water stains on the seats that won't come out.
Love the ride and comfort and handling.
definitely the axles since that seems to be a recurring problem and better tranny
