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. . .

How much antifreeze does a 1995 mercury tracer hold?

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 )
