1998 Mercury Mountaineer transmission repairs. There was no third gear and the transmission had to be replaced. Engine light stayed on and the egr sensor had to be replaced.
Original oil pump driver failed, causing oil pump to stop circulating oil thru engine, causing server engine damage. Mechanic stated that the oil pump driver part that failed, should have lasted for the life of the original engine. After completing approx $1500. In repairs to replace oil pump, bearings etc, he (will bmc motors 114 sierra st. El segundo, calif. 310-322-9511) discovered that an aluminum buffer on the defective part had disinegrated, causing a metal to metal situation, which caused the oil pump driver to fail, which stopped the oil flow thru the engine. This caused a rod to be thrown, and now an additional repairs in the neighbor hood of $3500 is being demanded. The vehicle was at the end of a lease, and subsequently turned in, and the creditor, Ford motor credit, wants us to pay for the repairs caused by their defective part. We contacted the dealer that we leased from, and of course they say there is no history of any other reportings of this defect in an oil pump driver. Ts.

Problem mentioned on visit in December 01. My son and I experienced carbon monoxide poisoning on a trip to chicago 3/15/02. There are many similar vehicles in the rural area in which I live. I feel a service alert should be sent for similar age make vehicles that come in for service. Especially if they mention a tick in the engine. Have there been other reports of cracked egr tubes? nlm.

With only 61000 miles and at the 60000 mile check up I was informed that the timing guides are disintegrating. I was also informed that the repair would cost over $900. 00. I have searched for any recalls on this problem to no avail. The vehicle has been serviced faithfully at the dealers service center. At 49500 miles the vehicle was taken in to have a normal oil change and I asked to have a 50000 mile check up. I was told that they didn't offer a checkup at that mileage. (probably because if any problems are found at that mileage they would have to repair under warranty!) it appears a little strange that a part that should give over 100000 miles should fail. (I have had many foreign vehicles that provided over 200000 miles without this problem. ) please look into this and if there is a recall or if I have any remedy available please contact me at rip_winter@hotmail.
