Battery want charge in mercury mountaineer
How did you check the fuse ? look at it ? Use a DMM - digital multi-meter an test for B+ voltage at the heavy gage wire on the back of the alternator . The connector that plug's into the alternator ,that has three wire's in it. This should have B+ voltage as well . Do you know what a wiring diagram is ? How to read one ?

Replace head gasket
very difficult for a beginner
to start with , if it is a head gasket , the proper fix will require that the head be machined flat again to be effective in a good repair
you have made a lot of assumptions so now you need to get some facts
have a compression test done to determine if it a head gasket or cracked head
have the fault codes read to see if the problem is electronic or injector related
lastly only use accredited professional service centers that have experience on your maske of vehicle as they are bound by a code of ethics and a requirement to use only fully qualified mechanics and get quotes first
if you do the compression test and the fault code reading, that will give you knowledge to question any statements regarding "new motor " or other sayings that would indicate a gender bias and may just stop you getting ripped off

How do i emptythe gas tank on a 2000 mercury mountaineer
Here are two ways:
You can take the filler hose off from the gas tank and put a siphon hose in there. Siphon it into 5 gallon cans.
Another way is to pull off the main gas feed line that goes from tank to the engine. Just find a convenient spot to pull the line apart, like possibly right before the fuel filter. Then you will need to activate the fuel pump to have it push the gas out. The easiest way to activate the pump is to find the fuel pump relay (under the hood in the fuse/relay block) and pull it out. Then use a short jumper wire into the two correct terminals where the FPR plugs in. This will automatically start the fuel pump and you can push all the gas out of the tank.
Most of the time, the two terminals at the FPR will be numbered 30 and 87. Look on the relay for terminal identification. You are jumping the main power feed line at the relay to the line going to the fuel pump. Do not guess, or you could damage your engine computer if you put the jumper wire in the wrong terminal. At the relay, you are jumping the power side of relay. The other terminals at the relay are for the coil side of the relay. Jump the power side!
