Where is the camshaft position sensor located on a 98 Mercury Mystique 2.4??
it could be your coil pack or a short
You sure it is the gauge that is broke? I bet it is the sending unit.
According to the 1996 Mercury Mystique Scheduled Maintenance Guide : The timing belt for the 2.0 liter four cylinder engine is changed at : ( 60,000 mile intervals )
It has a hydraulic clutch ( the brake fluid reservoir is also the clutch fluid reservoir )
The fuse panel for all years Mystique and Contour is located in the cabin, under the dash on the driver side, just to the left of the steering column as you sit in the car. There is a small pull tab that looks & feels like a golf tee. A gentle tug on that tab & the panel will drop open. There is also a main fuse box under the dash adjacent the battery. Access should be self-explanitory.
Can you show a picture of the pcv location on a 1996 mystique?
engine swapShort answer, no. Based on information from ADP Hollander. Edit:There should be no problem, provided that they were the same type, ie, two V6's or two I4's. I have the engine from a '96 Contour or Mystique in my 2000 Cougar with no problems, you wont even have to deal with the issue of return-vs-returnless fuel systems.
Ignition switch may be defective.
There is a amber light in the in the upper righthand side of the dash cluster that will come on for a few seconds after you start the car that says ABS.
Should take only a few seconds to reset the computer in theory. I have found this to be the case in my '99 Mystique & Contours. For my cars, I only remove fuses 4 & 11 from the box under the hood next to the battery. This resets the comuter without losing the station programming in my radio. Fuse numbers may be different in a '96. Check the FAQs at contour.org, or fordcontour.org to confirm which fuses for your car.
On a 1996 Mercury Grand Marquis : The fuse panel is under the dash , to the left of the steering wheel column ( it has a cover on it ) Also , the Power Distribution Box ( which is " live " ) is located in the engine compartment by the battery
