The vehicle may lose vehicle speed signal, which can affect speedometer operation and transmission shift quality. Most often the Vehicle Speed Sensor is faulty, however, at times, the driven gear inside the transmission is at fault. Replace the Vehicle Speed sensor and inspect the driven gear upon sensor removal.

1993 Mercury Topaz Problems
If the throttle lever is out of adjustment, or the grommets are missing / broken at the throttle or transmission, the automatic transmission can shift hard. Replace the grommets as needed and adjust the throttle lever.
Poor rubber material used in the motor mounts can cause them to fail, leading to a knocking noise or lifting sensation on acceleration. The motor mounts will need to be replaced with revised parts.
Fuel pump failure can cause the engine to crank but fail to start. Diagnosis will show insufficient, or no fuel pressure, and fuel pump in the fuel tank will need to be replaced.
Internal heater blower motor issues can cause a ticking noise from the heater blower when the fan is on. To correct this concern, replace the heater blower motor with a revised unit.

1993 Mercury Topaz Reviews
I love this car. Bought it off a girlfriend for 400. bucks, 3 yrs ago, ole blue hasn't let me down. I replaced serptine belt and hydrolic balancer. With regular tune ups and maintainence she runs like a gem. Only issue is heater in winter freezes, simple piece of card board solved that. Great car, cheap, easy on gas, no issues with oil l;eaks... Low insurance and NO payments!!!!!
over all i like this car
