A missed adjusted neutral safety switch, or a faulty one.
Only the 2.3L HSC Inline 4 will fit in the 1986 Mercury Topaz. If everything in the engine bay were gutted, perhaps something larger such as a 3.0L V6 from a 1992-1994 model MIGHT fit but it would require a complete running 92-94 Ford Tempo or Mercury Topaz with the V6 engine as a donor car (and, if you could find such a car, it would be more worth your time/money to invest in it v.s. a 1986 model). The automatic transmission from a Taurus WILL NOT WORK in a Tempo/Topaz.
Replace your transmission pump or get a new transmission.
Evidently the cooling fan is not working.
the computer box on a 1992 topaz is on the drivers side under the dashboard on the firewall behind the fuse panel to the left i would think a 1993 would be similar
On a 1997 Mercury Tracer : The AUTOMATIC transmission fluid dipstick would be on the side of the transmission ( transaxle ) in the area of the brake fluid reservoir . The manual transmission ( transaxle ) does not have a dipstick
10w30 would be a good choice. Any major brand is fine.
MIght be the injector itself.
Yes, and hopefully nothing else.
The filter is actaully located inside of the transmission itself.....you would have to remove the transmission and tear it apart to get to the filter
You would have to take out the engine and then it would make it easy to take the transmission of of the engine.
According to the 1997 Mercury Mountaineer owners manual : Your 4R70W automatic transmission capacity is ( 13.9 quarts ) * that of couse would be for the transmission , torque converter , lines , transmission cooler , etcetera *
the first step that should be taken is to have the transmission serviced, this should include removing transmission pan, draining fluid, removing and replacing filter and pan gasket. then if the problem persists it would be best to have the vehicles computer scanned to see if any problems are present with the transmission. usually the computer will store fault codes which will help pinpoint the problem.
I would have to say say some older model Taurus 82-91
Low transmission fluid, transmission on it's way out.
I think it would be the same as a 1993, in which case it is located on the left hand side of the trunk, by the hinge.
sounds like you are too far down the launch ramp or you live in a really wet area ..
If you have one installed, on the 2.3 L engine, it would be in the back of the engine, looking at the engine from the front of the car. Its in the frost plug.
There is a redesigned transmission vent that should fix this problem.
According to the 1997 Mercury Mountaineer owners manual : ( 13.9 quarts / 13.2 liters ) for the 4R70W automatic transmission ( rear wheel drive and all wheel drive ) ** that would be for the entire system , transmission , converter , lines , etcetera **
Check fuel pressure.
Plugged fuel filter? Plugged air filter? Plugged catalytic converter? I would think it would be the throttle body.
I was not aware that the Grand Marquis came in a manual Transmission! If it was an Automatic Transmission I would say take it to a Transmission Shop and have it looked at.
check to make sure the belt tensioner is functional if not it needs to be replaced
call the Ford dealer or a salvage yard near you. Looks good but might be a model year change there.
