1992 Mercury Capri Problems

Battery Light Comes On, Belt Failure, Sometimes Repeatedly

An alternator pulley, of the incorrect size, installed at the factory can be the cause of drive belt failure and illumination of the battery light. The alternator pulley should be inspected and replaced as necessary if the drive belt brakes. When the new belt installed, it must be adjusted to the proper tension.

won't restart after engine warm

sounds like a fuel pressure issue after driving for 20 minutes. The car turns over fine but tried to start.

Inside Door Pull Handle Breaks

Faulty material in manufacturing could cause the inside door pull handle to break. Both handles should be replaced.

1992 Mercury Capri Reviews

got a 92 non turbo only 100hp makes it a little slow but it shifts nice runs good too, 18 years old and the body is amazing condition, downfall is the top was worn out pretty badly but they are kinda cheap to the most part. most defenently worth getting one if you find one. I only payed $800 for a good condition car with only 78,000 miles on it. deal so far.
A fun car. Not a lot of power/pick up on the lower end engine. Soft top has a bunch of leaks, but otherwise simple design and solid construction. No real mechanical trouble
