There is no ignition timing on the Tracer it is computer controlled. If you mean to ask how to time the engine when installing a timing belt, there is a pointer in one of the holes in the camshaft gear that should point to a dot in the cylinder head behind the gear (straight up). There is a small tab on the crankshaft gear when the pulley is removed that points straight up to a notch in ridge just above that gear.

need timing marks for 97 mercury tracer

No , according to the Gates website ( they make timing belts etc. ) the 1.9 liter engine in a 1996 Mercury Tracer is NOT an interference engine

No , the 2.0 liter 4 cylinder engine in a 1997 Mercury Tracer ( IS NOT ) an interference engine ( according to the Gates website , they make timing belts etcetera )

( NO ) according to the Gates website ( they make timing belts etcetera ) the 2.0 litre four cylinder engine in a 1997 Mercury Tracer ( is NOT an interference engine )

how to set timing belt on a 98 mercury tracer 2.0

The 1.9 liter and 1.8 liter four cylinder engines used in the 1993 Mercury Tracer are NON - INTERFERENCE engines according to the Gates website ( they make timing belts etcetera )

By a reputable mechanic and every 60,000 miles. ========================================================== The 1999 Mercury Tracer scheduled maintenance guide shows to inspect the timing belt on the 2.0 liter , 1999 Mercury Tracer engine at 120,000 miles, and the Gates website ( they make timing belts etcetera ) shows to inspect the timing belt at 120,000 miles , replace if necessary To be on the safe side , I would replace the timing belt before that

According to the Gates website ( they make timing belts etcetera ) The 1.9 liter four cylinder engine in a 1995 Mercury Tracer is NON INTERFERENCE

On a 1999 Mercury Tracer , 2.0 liter four cylinder engine : According to the 1999 Mercury Tracer maintenance shedule : ( inspect at 120,000 miles ) According to the Gates website : ( inspect at 120,000 miles , replace if required , but I noticed according to the Gates website that it is an INTERFERENCE engine )

No, there will not be engine noise, but you may notice a decrease in engine performance. The 1.9 liter engine is a freewheeling engine which is not damaged by incorrect camshaft timing or even by a broken timing belt.

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 )

You can't. Computer sets it. Chuck the Tracer pro.

No ( according to Gates , they manufacture timing belts etc . ) Neither the 1.8 L or 1.9 L 4 cylinder engines are interference engines in a 1991 Mercury Tracer

Remove distributor cap Have assistant crank engine and check to see if rotor is turning as engine is cranked

Yes , it is an interference engine ( according to the Gates website , they make timing belts etc. )

There are raised ridges oon the plastic timing cover that provide the timing marks

can't. computer does it automatically.

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 )

you have to take the timing belt cover off and timing belt to get to the water pump

Both the 1.8 liter and 1.9 liter - 4 cylinder engines use a timing BELT

No , on a 1992 Mercury Tracer , both the 1.8 liter and the 1.9 liter four cylinder engines are NOT interference engines according to the Gates website ( they make timing belts etcetera )
