Customer Question

JA: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with a Mercury. The Mercury Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: yup
JA: Great! What have you tried so far?
Customer: nothing too much, just dabbling a bit until I know what exactly is wrong
JA: Is there anything else the Mercury Mechanic should be aware of about your Mercury?
Customer: not that I'm aware lol
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Mercury Mechanic about your situation and connect you two.

  1. Can i get the year, make, model, and engine?

A flashing CEL indicates the computer has stored a code. It also means the computer detects a misfire is occurring, normally from plugs or coils bad but sometimes from other causes. Are you behind on any maintenance?

Thanks for asking your question and letting me try to help you.

If your confused on why or how to rate me, let me know.

I'm only paid from the deposit you've made when you rate 3,4, or 5 stars.

Follow up/Reply as many times as needed before or after rating.

Thanks, ***** ***** flashing CEL first off you need to see what codes are stored and see if it needs plugs and wires.

This can also cause the stalling issue you have.
