I understand you are having misfire issues with your mercury.

Im not too familiar with this model, is it the same as a ford escape?

I just have a few questions for you:

is the check engine light on? if so do you have axcess to a scan tool to check the codes?

also under when does the misfire occur? idle, under load, on first start up or all of the above?

also is there any maintenance item that have been neglected? ie spark plugs, oil change intervals etc?

check engine light is on scan tool code said no spark the van wont start anymore but it did occur under load maintenance light was low tire

do you know what the specific code was? (for example P0300)

Did you get a chance to have your check engine light scanned for codes? If you are able to get any codes from within the computer I can further assist you in diagnosing your misfire problem.

Let me know if I can be of further assistance
