Second opinion] Im needing to get my van inspected, it fails and the print out says PO325 and po120 are malfunctioned. Could i possibly do this job myself?

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Mercury?

1999 villager

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Villager yourself? What have you tried so far?

Just trying to understand what I need to do to get the check engine light to stay off long enough to get it inspected

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the light stay on, or does it blink?

Stays on

Hello and welcome to JA...the P0120 code is for the TP sensor... Throttle Position Sensor....that is a common failure on the Villager....It requires a scan tool that can read live data when replacing it because it has to be adjusted for proper operation. The P0325 is for the Knock Sensor, which is located under the Intake Manifold. This repair is a bit more in depth. Replacing both will turn off the check engine light, but if you only clear the codes to try to get through inspection the light will come right back on

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
