Have the module in the dist checked out. I had the exact same problem for 2 years. And every one had a different reason. Its a bad fuel pump, i promise. Replace the fuel pump and throw on a new fuel filter and it will run great. just make sure you dont buy the cheapest one. I did that and it broke a year later. ive had a new one in for about 4 years now and no more problem. replacing the pump means emptying your gas tank enough to drop the gas tank and remove the top of the tank the pump is right there its a pain in the butt but relatively cheap if you do it yourself. around $60.00 dollars.Good luck

I have a 93 Topaz that had the same issue, and it was an easy fix - the solenoid needed to be replaced. If the problem is the solenoid, the problem may get worse so that the car won't even start when it's cooled down.

Does the weather on Earth have anything to do with the planet Mercury?

The short answer is yes.That is because everything in the Universe affects everything else in the Universe, although almost always unmeasurably. So the general, theoretical answer to "Does A have anything to do with B?" is always yes, no matter what A and B are.Practically speaking, though, the influence from Mercury on the weather on Earth is extremely, extremely small, and it would never be taken into account in the weather forecast calculations.According to chaos theory, though, a butterfly in Asia could start a hurricane in America. So, in theory, the extremely small gravitational pull from Mercury, or even the very faint light reflecting from Mercury, could in some clever way cause something similar to happen. But it would definitely be completely unmeasurable and could never be determined to come from Mercury.Another theoretical example on how Mercury could affect the weather on Earth is if a person started believing that planet Mercury was his or her God and started bowing in the direction of it. That bowing could, again according to chaos theory, start a hurricane, just as the butterfly's wings could. And the direction of the bowing could determine whether the hurricane started or not. Therefore, the position of Mercury could start a hurricane on Earth. Of course this is all theory, and again, it could never be determined that Mercury had anything at all to do with the start of the hurricane.

Why would the engine start cutting out a 1989 mercury topaz?

If everything else is good, like the fuel pressure ( sometimes the fuel pump in the tank stops ) wires. plugs etc. then the thing to look at is the Ign. module. It is on the distributor. "89's had that problem. You will have to pull the dist. to change the module. Not too expensive. The car will run fine then just stall. It will start again and run for a while till it happens again.

Mercury Topaz 1991 will start in rainy weather but stops after a few blocks in wet weather What might be the problem?

I can think of a couple possibilities: The distributor may have a crack that is allowing moisture in and causes the spark to jump to ground. You may have a crack in the high voltage wire that goes from the coil to the distributor or your carburater de-icer pickup may not be in place and when the temperature is cool and humid you could be building up an ice ball around the fuel inlet.
