Thermal relay is defective causing the fans not to run when they should. Replace the relay.

I found a site called TeamCapri.com they have step by step directions with diagrams that are printable. That should help you. The section is called removing and replacing the Timing Belt. Hope that gives you some help.
Contrary to popular belief there is a set way that you take the top down and put the top back on. I usually start with unzipping the back window and taking it out then I undo the two snaps on the inside center ceiling (by the dome light), then unsnap the snaps at the top of the rear window on the cross bar, then undo the clips by the side windows in the back. Lastly… Read More
are they both xr2 if your asking if you can swap motors its gonna be a pain you need a new harness and CPU if your going from non turbo to turbo and i wouldn't recomend using an automatic trans with the turbo motor but just the turbos you will be up set i don't know what the first guy was talking about the trans for
It operates only when the engine is turned over due to vacuum/suction from the engine .....If not working properly, there will be no electrical charge to the injectors.
under the hood attached to the fire wall on the drivers side. the male fitting on the filter is bent @ a 90 degree angle facing the front of your car. it is same location for 1991 also
what about a 1991 mercury capri? What's the question the answer is yes YESS!!!!!!
Coil and fuel pump are two separate systems. Should not affect each other directly. I replace the distributor and can now get the car to start and stay running. Thankss
My '91 Capri had the same problem. It turned out to be a problem with something I had never heard of before. It's called a stator. I believe it is located in or near the distributor, and replacement fixed my problem.
Check this link for an opinion on this-http://www.midcomustang.com/caprihistory.shtml At this time no, but it still may be a collectors car after it turns 25, esp the 1994 wich fewer were made, not much is mentioned of the vehicle some import magazines have marked the car as a keeper as far as rare cars go.
With great difficulty. Raise the light, remove the black plastic trim piece, remove the headlight bezel then remove and unplug the headlight. The housing/motor assy is held in by four screws but the lower two are blocked by either the windshield washer or colling water reservoir bottle (depending on side). The difficult part is that the car is build like a Chinese puzzle and you might have to remove a bunch of other stuff off… Read More

I assume that you mean, "2.3 liter engine," because 23 liters is pretty big, and Ford never made one that size. The firing order is 1-3-4-2, and cylinder number 1 is the one on the end where the drive belts for the alternator, etc., are; cylinder number 4 is closest to the transmission or output end of the engine. Two and three are, naturally, in order between one and four. Ignition timing is dependent upon… Read More
Where is the location of the fuel pump relay?
Majority will be automatics, but standard transmission is an option in most cars/trucks.
Good question- the 1996 Mercury Tracer cooling fan relays usually described in wireing diagrams as "in the engine fuse box". Not true, though the relays near by, hidden in the front of the left fender, next to the air filter box, headlamp and fuse box. The air filter box must be removed, which reveals a wire harness and a rubber covered pair of relays and wire harness. One relay controls the high fan speed and… Read More
hi, the four little holes in the front of the stereo are for 2 special tools. they are cheap (i think) and most shops have them around. it only takes 2 minutes to remove with the tools, so it shouldn't cost much to have a shop do it if you dont want to buy the tools. hope that helps you can get the u shaped tools at walmart for about 7 bucks in the car… Read More
They unscrew from the back of the light assy. You may have to remove the light to get ot it.
In the exhaust pipe. the oxygen sensor is not in the exhaust pipe it is directly under the hood off of the exhaust manifold. it sets by itself and is easy to get to. you will probably have to cut the old sensor wire to get the old one out.
replace the axel!!! not just the joint. you have to remove the ball joint and the tie rod end. just remove the nut off the bottom of the tie rod end and it shouldn't mess up your alinement. then you have to remove the nut that is under your rim so you must remove your tire. and take that nut off also. and replace the wheel baring also if your going to replace stuff anyway.I… Read More
ok there isn't a fan belt. there is a belt that does the altanator and water pump, and another belt that does ac/power steering. your better off replaceing both at the same time. you have to just loosen the bolts that go to the part and some of them you can only see from under neath the car. then you should be able to take both off and replace them. its a pain in the… Read More
The thermostat is located inside the housing on the right side of the engine. There is about as big as a woman's wrist running from the radiator to the engine on the right. It connects to the housing in question. There is generally a bolt on the top and nut on the bottom of this housing that will needs to be removed. Inside lies the thermostat.

Hello,If you are running your Capri on plain water only chences are immense that your water pump impeller has completely corroded away or simply desintegrated due to years of friction in water and then merely a rough edged razor sharp flat dish remains rather then an i^peller, which obviously does not circulate the water as required.Recommend you check water circulation by removing top hose at thermmostat and remove thermostat on cold engine an then start… Read More

This is a difficult job. The front spindle assemblies must be removed. Then the assembly is pressed apart and the rotars are unbolted from the back. I tried this without proper tools and bought new bearings in the end. If you are mechanically inclined its probably better to remove the assemblies and take to dealer.
the car handles pretty good in the snow i have a 1991 conv. and seems too
The Mercury Capri came from the factory with the wrong altenator pulley that does not seat the belt properly. Ford offered a replacement pulley with the proper specs. Contact your local Ford dealer and see if they still have any pulleys available. Replace the pulley and put a good quality belt on and that should fix your problem.THIS IS BECKY I CONTACTED FORDS PERSANAL SIT. THEY HAVE CONVENATLEY DISSCONTENUED THIS POLLY. THEY NEED TO CHECK… Read More
Yes, it should fit, you could call your local junk yards to find one.
This is at least a 2 Hour Job. The Alternator rests on the Passenger Side of the Vehicle near the Passenger Floor Board.

Remove the battery and plastic battery tray. In the early model there were 2 sections to the cable (upper and lower) and they meet just under the edge of the battery tray. The upper cable comes throught the firewall in a rubber tube. The lower cable connects to the transmission. The 1993 capri is very simple. The cable will NOT come out the top. It can only be removed from the bottom but no need… Read More
would take alot of modes but it could be done. and not cheaply. may even have to streach the hood and the hole engine area a little to make it fit.

Here's a trick that might help. Next time it's damp and not running well, take it to a dark place, turn the lights off and open the hood to see if there are any sparks. You can often have high voltage sparking in places that you wouldn't expect, and high humidity can often help make that worse. Whatever you do, don't ever run the engine in an enclosed garage, even if that's the only place… Read More
After you unhook the front latches, push back to unhook top from the back ledge. Roll the rear window under first, push the top back slowly and then push the 1st(front) roller bar backwards as the top is falling into the backend. If you don't, the top won't fit flush. It took me FOREVER to figure this out! DONT FORGET TO USE YOUR KEY AND POP THE LEVER ON THE DRIVERS SIDE!!!!! DID YOU FORGET… Read More
Answer Not sure what the problem is exactly, but I will say...don't force it! The framework will bend. I forced mine up. nothing bent. you need help from a friend. apply constant pressure lifting upwards and then pushing forwards. it goes slowly but will work. one person on each side. try to stay even with your helper so it doesn't twist
You are missing a few bolts from the flex plate to the torque converter. It will still go into gear, but this means it ain't got any way to transfer the energy from the engine to the transmission.
same happend to my 91. u gota take off the shifter nob and take off the plastic stuff and then there should be some rubber things u need to replace shouldn't cost more then 10 bucks or so. or u can rig it and drill threw the 2 mettal peices and stick a blot in there
The manual states it requires (non-turbo) 3.5 qts with filter.

You need to replace it. I ran into the problem a month ago. I removed the door panel and noticed the cable all stretched out. It's hard to find parts but located one on line.

It looks simple and i attempted it and it ended up costing me an additiona 400 dollars espicially… Read More

The fuse diagram for my 91 Capri is as fallows: Engine 15A Stop 20A Power Window 30A \ Meter 10A Hazard 15A ------ HTD B-light 20A Cigar 15A Tail 15A IG Relay Room 10A door lock 30A Audio 15A \ Fog Lamp 20A Air Cond 15A ----- \ Cooling Fan 20A Wiper 20A Heater 30A The IG Relay and the Heater are the big ones on the side of the fuse box.
Answer The fact that it comes on when the A/C is on indicates the fan motor is good. The fan will only come on when the temperature sensor indicates the engine needs additional cooling. While traveling down the road the fan will rarely come on. It will come on in stop & go traffic. If the engine is not overheating, then you have no problem. there is a fan behind the radiator that is temp… Read More

it's glued on with contact cement glue Answer I just replaced the latch on mine. There was no glue or rubber cement, at least on my model. In order to remove the old latch: Open the soft-top halfway, so it balances with the frontmost portion in a roughly vertical orientation.

Hi i have a 1994 xr2. the speedo cable goes straight into the cluster gauge from the tranny.
85cI don't know anyone who has a 90's Capri that has a temp gauge that is accurate. I have had my radiator water tested and the actual gauge is wrong. It always runs in the red in the summer. Also, the oil gauges are not correct, either. Try replacing the Themo.....I have no issues with mine

I just had a water pump installed in my Capri and while they're doing that, make sure they put a new timing belt in, because if you have a 91 Turbo w/ ac, it's a 4.5 hour job because the water pump is under the engine.
automatic fluid ford If its a standard you don't put tranny fluid in it!! Lord have mercy if you are talkin about putting somethin in the clutch reservior it should plainly say DOT 3 which is brake fluid.

I would check to see just how much oil presure you have. These gages do not work right,(oil presure an temp sometimes reads wrong)Buy your own gages an hook them up or pay a garage.This could save money.Hope this helps
Maybe $100. You might be able to do it yourself for the cost of the gasket and the 2 hours it'll take to drain oil, pull pan, clean old gasket areas then apply new gasket and reinstall the pan.

the stock stereo has four holes, two on each side of the stereo, about 1/8 th inch diameter. you can get the tools from walmart in the stereo section among the installation kits. it contains 2 U shaped rods with a knotch near the end. insert and pull both at the same time. (instructions in kit). costs about 7 bucks but well worth it. i just did this myself.
Just a suggestion Check the flywheel
The injectors really don't "fire". They squirt a very fine mist of gas that is then "fired" The injectors could have a plugged tip and not be squirting the mist of gas. A few cans of injector cleaner could be added to the gas tank which would clean the pinholes at the end of the injectors. You could also change the injectors to new ones. (Not horribly expensive) BUT if all the injectors fail all… Read More
The fuel pump should be in the gas tank, you have to drop it and remove the unit where the hoses and wiring go into Answer There is an access panel under the rear seat. Before you replace the pump, remove it from the tank and check the filter attached to the pump inside the tank. If it looks crappy, you may have an accumulation inside the pump restricting its flow. Test the pump by… Read More

Normally you would check the level with the transmission warm, engine running in park. But, your car may very well be different. Over filling the transmission may damage the seals, so it is imperative to do it correctly. Your owners manual describes how it is done. It may also be written on the dipstick. If you have any doubts call you local Mercury dealer and find out for sure.
