This is a messy, but easy job. First use some ramps, and get access to the underside of the car. Then remove the plastic skid guard on the drivers side of the car. It should have about 5 or 6 bolts. Once that is removed, you should see the fairly rectangular transmission pan. I'm assuming you already have a new filter and gasket, you shouldn't reuse the old ones. Also make sure they are the right size, and type. Line the gasket up underneath the pan to make sure. Then loosen the bolts on the lowest part of the tranny pan, (likely the side farthest from the front of the car), put something underneath to catch the dripping fluid. And slowly make your way around the pan bolts loosening them. Eventually the fluid will start to drain out. It WILL be messy. Once you've emptied what you can, carefully remove the other bolts and lower the pan. Removing the filter isn't hard either, just a couple of bolts. Make sure you don't get any crap inside the naked valve body, or you will likely wreck it. Clean out the tranny pan really well, and let it air dry. Make sure you clean your magnets as well. If you see any metal slivers, be concerned. If it's just a muddy sludge, you're probably ok. When replacing the pan, try not to over tighten, and tighten them in a criss-cross pattern to prevent leaks. If you have a rubber gasket, don't use sealant on it!
3 screws facing the engine
I believe it's dextron/mercron II
How do you change dash board lights on a 1995 Mercury Tracer.

On a 1995 Mercury Tracer : According to the Gates website ( they make timing belts etcetera ) ( both the 1.8 and 1.9 liter four cylinder engines are NON INTERFERENCE )
I ended up having to have a shop drill into it to get it out. Everything you read says they come right out, but mine didn't.
Remove the transmission pan and you will see them on the underside of the transmission. The cable goes up through the transmission case near the driver's side front wheel.

It is actually inside the transmission itself. You get to it be removing the transmission pan.
5w-20 seems to be the norm for cars in that year ... check your manual if you have one -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The ( 1996 ) Mercury Tracer owners manual shows ( 5W-30 ) is the preferred engine oil weight
The computer mounts to the floor underneath the dash, almost dead center.
According to the Gates website ( they make timing belts etcetera ) the 1.8 and the 1.9 liter four cylinder engines used in a 1995 Mercury Tracer are ( NON - INTERFERENCE engines )
According to the ( 1996 ) Mercury Tracer Owner Guide : With engine oil filter change : Both the 1.8 and the 1.9 take : ( 4.0 U.S. quarts , 5W-30 is the PREFERRED oil )
