PULL THE DIPSTICK!! the dip stick is located between the engine and the battery on the driver's side under the hood!

Well if you're doing your standard fluid/filter change, just measure how much you removed, and replace that much.

The 1989 Mercury Tracer 1.6 liter engine cylinder head bolt torque specification is 135 pounds. The cylinder head bolts should be torqued in 45 pound intervals.
I have a 89 tracer with a 5 speed manual transmission. When I had the transmission oil changed they removed the speedometer cable from the transmission and filled it through the odometer drive mounting hole. I laughed at the mechanic but he said that was the only way to do it. If there is no other hole to check the oil I guess you may have to pull the odometer cable to check it!!! Hope this helps you out. RG
