First guess would be low on refrigerant, causing the compressor to quit running after a short period. Could also be a buildup of pressure in the system, causing the system to shut down. Also possible that the fan clutch or some assembly on the compressor only works for a short period. . .

What is the difference between the Mercury Tracer Trio and the regular Mercury Tracer?

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.
