Starts and dies shortly with sputter

Asked by Jun 24, 2017 at 12:26 PM about the 1997 Mercury Villager 3 Dr LS Passenger Van

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have had it to do this 3 times now! I have replaced
the battery, fuel filter, and the very expressive maf
sensor and still no luck.
Runs for about a half minute and stalls down and
sputters.
I can restart and does the same thing!
Have had it in the shop second time this happened
and after a day and a half they charged me and
couldn't find a problem.
I am very frustrated this is my only transportation
and I am failing to be able to get back and forth to
work!

1 Answer
