Hi there. It looks as if you are experiencing some inconsistent problems related to ignition or fuel system components. Driving without the oil cap on can create vacuum issues, but I don’t think that the oil issue is the source of your starting problems. It is probably a better idea to have a professional mobile mechanic come to your location and complete a car is hard to start inspection; so they can inspect your Mercury onsite and determine what is causing your problems.
