It originally came with green coolant. It is critical that you know what kind of antifreeze your car takes. There are 2 general kinds. Long life and traditional Green coolant. The sensors base data on the correct chemical composition of the one that was originally installed in it. Therefore adding wrong one may cause the ecm to adjust the fuel mixture incorrectly or cause sensor damage. Some vehicles require different long life coolants- GM has Dex-cool, Ford just came out with another, Honda has their own. If the concentration is too great or too weak, it will not work correct. The original coolant in that car was "green coolant". This old style antifreeze should never be mixed with the newer long life coolant, unless it is a "universal" or "global" coolant that is supposedly compatible with both. The coolant capacity is in your owners manual, usually in the "servicing your vehicle" section. And as for the color. Read the temp ratings on the antifreeze bottles, and use whichever you need according to your climate. Be sure to keep in mind the difference between pure antifreeze, and prediluted (50/50 or half water, half antifreeze).

What is spark plug gap for 1989 Mercury Topaz?

gap them at .54 I have a 1993 Mercury Topaz with the 2.3 Liter I-4. The recommended gap is .044 (44 thousandths). I highly doubt that the plug will fire with just over 1/2 gap as recommended earlier. The correct gap should be listed on the emissions label under the hood. I have a 1993 Topaz with the 3.0L V6 and the label on my car is on the body piece in front of the radiator. Mine listed a recommended 0.042" - 0.046" gap. I have mine set at 0.044"
