Tune-Ups to Help Your Mercury Villager Run Better

Is it tune-up time? If you usually wait until your car has an issue to take it in for service, now is the time to work on that habit, particularly if you want to keep your 1996 Mercury Villager in tip-top shape. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your Villager’s power on the road. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, which can mean better fuel economy (a win for you) and lower emissions (a win for the environment). When you take your car for regular engine tune-ups as recommended by Mercury, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your Villager’s engine running smoother, longer.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Mercury Villager

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 1996 Mercury Villager. The first is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. The standard Firestone Tune-Up includes new spark plugs (and installation!), a thorough inspection of engine components, and a lifetime parts warranty*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your Villager. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air filter. Our third service is a thorough cleaning of the fuel system. During this type of tune-up, we use a three-step process to get rid of harmful varnish, dirt, and carbon deposit buildup in your Villager’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Keep in mind that your Villager's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. This means that a tune-up service that’s a great fit for another car may not be optimal for yours. Talk to a technician about your driving style, mileage, and service history to learn more about your vehicle's specific needs.

Questions About 1996 Mercury Villager Engine Tune-Ups

  • When should Mercury Villager spark plugs be replaced? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Without the spark of electricity created by spark plugs, your engine doesn’t have the combustion it needs to start — which could leave you stranded on the road. Always replace your spark plugs on time based on Mercury’s recommendations.
  • What does a puddle underneath my Mercury Villager mean? Puddles could indicate an oil leak, coolant leak, or brake fluid leak– all of which can critically hurt your engine. Have your engine inspected as soon as you spot a pool of liquid in your usual parking spot.
  • Are hard starts and stops bad for my Mercury Villager engine? Hard stops and starts can lead to premature wear on your engine’s components. Lighten up that lead foot and opt for steady, fluid starts and stops instead. Your engine (and your passengers!) will thank you.
