1996 Mercury Mystique Problems

Exhaust & Emissions -- Verified

The Check Engine Light can illuminate with codes due to the lack of EGR (exhaust gas recirculation) flow caused. This is commonly a result of a clogged passage in the intake manifold. To correct this problem, the EGR valve has to be removed and the passage cleaned thoroughly. Partial restriction of this passage can cause smog test failures for the NOx emissions without causing a drivability symptom.

1996 Mercury Mystique Reviews

This is a great car. I have owned this used Mercury for a year now and it is in great shape it almost has 130,000 miles on it and only needs basic maintenance. Like fuel filters, oil changes and a tune up.
