How do you replace brake calipers on 1992 Mercury Topaz?
After the tire has been removed, this process is rather simple. You need to remove the hoses feeding brake fluid to the caliper. You will also need a hex key to remove the two to four bolts holding the caliper on. Once this is done, attach the hoses and/or lines to the new caliper, put the brake pads back on, slide over the rotor, and reattach with the two hex bolts. Be sure to add enough fluid and bleed the brake system before driving.

How do you check for a vacuum hose leak in a 1994 Mercury Topaz?
Do this OUTSIDE and be very careful!!! With the engine running, spray a litle starting fluid on vacuum lines that you suspect of leaking. Use short shots and don't let the fumes build up. That stuff is very flamable and is very dangerous if you get too much built up around a spark. Spray it on potential vacuum leaks and when you hit the place that IS leaking, the engine will speed up and/or run differently. Don't forget to check the vacuum assist brake and the intake manifold gaskets. But again, don't let the fumes build up. Use carb cleaner instead of starting fluid. It is not as volatile.

Transmission dipstick in 1992 Mercury topaz?
On my 1993 Topaz, the transmission fluid dipstick is on the right side of the engine, near the front, just to the left of the battery. It looks a lot like the oil dipstick, but, when you pull it out, the writing on the dipstick clearly mentions that the fluid level should be checked when the engine is hot and idling, and that a certain type of Mercury automatic transmission fluid should be used to refill.

What color of topaz can you get?
Topaz is a gemstone of all colors (Orange, yellow, brown, light blue to deep sky-blue, pink, colorless, white, light purple, greenish-blue, green), and its most valuable color is a golden orange-yellow, called "imperial topaz". Topaz is commonly thought of as a sky-blue gem, but it was not until this century that blue topaz became widespread on the gem market. Natural blue topaz with a deep hue is very uncommon in nature; colorless to light hued stones are heat-treated to achieve the blue color. Likewise, topaz rarely occurs naturally in pink; virtually all pink topaz is heat treated from yellow or brownish material. Some topaz from Russian localities are notorious for fading upon prolonged exposure to light. Stones from these localities are undesirable as gems. One should always inquire about the origin of the topaz before buying it to make sure it will not fade. Topaz of all different colors are used in jewelry. The orange, pink, and blue colors are most often cut for gems, and colorless topaz is sometimes cut with the brilliant cut, resembling diamond. Topaz is sometimes found as enormous flawless crystals, and some gigantic gems and faceted spheres have been formed from them, making unique and exquisite gem pieces. Topaz is rarely cut into cabochons. VARIETIES On the gem market, topaz is usually classified by color. Below is a list of the color names designated for gem topaz: Pink Topaz Blue Topaz Brown Topaz Green Topaz Other names may be designated to certain types of topaz: Precious Topaz - used to distinguish topaz from cheaper fakes, such as citrine Imperial Topaz - lustrous orange-yellow to orange-brown variety of topaz (most valued) Silver Topaz - colorless topaz Sherry Topaz - orange-brown topaz London Blue Topaz - deep blue topaz (the deepest blue form of topaz) Swiss Blue Topaz - deep blue topaz (not as deep blue as London blue topaz) Paraiba Topaz - sea-green topaz False names: Smoky Topaz is also a false name for Topaz. It is used by unscrupulous dealers to describe Smoky Quartz. Hyacinth is an orange-yellow to yellow-brown variety of Topaz. Although the name Hyacinth usually is used to describe a gem variety of Zircon of that color, it is occasionally used for Topaz as well (usually in old manuscripts). Pycnite is a columnar variety of Topaz. It may also refer to a yellow-white variety Gold Topaz Golden Topaz Madeira Topaz False Topaz Brazilian Topaz Bahia Topaz Citrine Topaz Brazilian Topaz - yellow to yellow-brown sapphire Indian Topaz - yellow to yellow-brown sapphire King Topaz - yellow to yellow-brown sapphire Oriental Topaz - yellow to yellow-brown sapphire Smoky Topaz - unscrupulous name for cut smoky quartz Star Topaz - yellow star sapphire There is also Mystic topaz, which is not a natural topaz is it made by adding some chemicals on the base on the colorless topaz to make it look colorful and is often cut in concave style to enhance the luster. Note: Citrine (a yellow-brown variety of Quartz) closely resembles yellow-brown Topaz. Unfortunately, unscrupulous dealers have adapted false name for Citrine so the unaware buyer thinks he is buying the more valuable Topaz. Any "Topaz" labeled with a prefix name (such as Gold Topaz, Madeira Topaz, False Topaz, Brazilian Topaz, Bahia Topaz, and Citrine Topaz) is heat-treated Citrine. However, there are three exceptions:
