Asked by Feb 20, 2016 at 10:07 AM about the 2003 Mercury Mountaineer 4 Dr STD AWD SUV

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Has been jumping out of gear for almost 2 years. This is an automatic. Sometimes when I put it into reverse, I have to give it gas to go into reverse. Otherwise, this piece of junk will just sit there in reverse and not go anywhere.

Sounds like you limped the transmission along for 2 years now. Surprised it hasn't failed you yet. Time for a rebuild IMO if you want to keep the SUV.
