When To Get 2001 Mercury Mountaineer Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 2001 Mercury Mountaineer, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Mountaineer jolts, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2001 Mercury Mountaineer, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Mountaineer suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Mercury Mountaineer’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Mercury Mountaineer

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2001 Mercury Mountaineer suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Mountaineer’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Mercury Mountaineer shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2001 Mercury Mountaineer’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2001 Mountaineer Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Mercury's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Mercury Mountaineer? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Mercury Mountaineer power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Mountaineer is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Mercury's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
