Why would a 1999 Mercury Tracer AC blow cool air for about a minute and then stop cooling?

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. . .

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

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 )
