Needs new alternator.
There is a baby under the hood.
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
The End Result
Overload or short to ground
I was looking at the ( 1996 ) Mercury Tracer Owner Guide and it shows that the engine cooling system capacity for the manual transaxle ( transmission ) is 5.3 U.S. quarts and for the automatic is 6.3 * it came from the factory with a 50 / 50 mix of distilled water and antifreeze , so it would take ( 2.65 to 3.15 quarts of antifreeze ) for a 50 / 50 mix ( manual / automatic )
Yes , on the 1997 Mercury Tracer , the fuel pump shut off switch / inertia switch is in the trunk , on the passenger side , up near the rear seat , under the trim ( there would be an access hole or door )
I just replaced the timig belt on my 97 mercury tracer 2.0, the timing marks are lined up, but i still have no compression at all. Your input would be greatly appreciated. Im asking the question, apparently I'm in the wrong area.
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
you could have a short between the two.
Evidently the cooling fan is not working.
WRONG very ugly Would Look Nice Depending On Rim Choice. Rim's Make All Vehicles Look Good.
My tracer requires a new serpentine belt every couple of years. It stretches and allows the tention pulley to rub against another part. I'de check that first but it may any of the parts the belt goes to.
there is probably something wrong with your fuse box or dashboard electronics i would take the car to an auto electrician and ask the to take a look at it
Many newer model vehicles have fans that keep running. I would bet yours is supposed to run for a minute or two to assist in cooling.
You could check the switch on the brake pedal, sometimes they need to be adjusted so the cruise will stay on.
When I asked how much it would cost to replace the gear shift light on a Toyota Echo, I was quoted about $100 from the dealership! (Most of the cost is labor).
There should be two on each side, outer and inner. There would be a big nut and cotter pin assembly that hold them inside the hub
white exhaust and rough running usually indicate possible blown head gasket.
The second generation Tracer (91-95) Trio was a sport model which came with 14" alloy wheels, a trunk spoiler and a leather wrapped steering wheel. Everything else between the two cars is the same. I unfortunately don't know about later models, but I would imagine the same sort of thing to be true. ~PorkPoney I have a '94 Tracer Trio. In addition to the 14" alloy sport wheels with 60 series tires, rear spoiler on trunk, and leather wrapped steering wheel, the Trio package had dual electric control side mirrors and rear window defroster included.
On a 1999 Mercury Grand Marquis : The Original Equipment engine cooling thermostat would have been ( around 192 * Fahrenheit )
ck bulbs first then ground circuit and power on trunk lights.Ground most likely
on the firewall
On a 1999 Mercury Grand Marquis , 4.6 liter V8 engine : The Original Equipment engine cooling thermostat would be : ( around 192 * Fahrenheit )
They would float on the surface of the Mercury but they wouldn't react with the Mercury.
