'98 Montaineer Starting Issues
My brother purchased a used 1998 Mercury Montaineer AWD with about 130,000 from a not so reliable dealer for money reasons. Up until now, the vehicle has been decently maintained new brakes pads/rotors, and I recently changed the oil.
However lately the transmission has been slipping as it takes awhile to go into gears. But there are some other problems I wanted insight on.
When my brother sometimes starts his truck it wont start and he will have to double or triple start it. What gives? As far as I know its the same battery and ignition from before but he has a new starter.
Also when driving the truck will rev into High rpms and stay that way and eventually go into the next gear.
Thanks in advance.
