1991 Mercury Tracer Problems

Valve seats (components in the cylinder head that help seal the valve) can fall out. When this happens, it causes rough running and creates noise. Replacement of the cylinder head is commonly required to fix this problem.

A cylinder head replacement could be needed if the vehicle overheats and causes the cylinder head to crack between the valves.

An external Engine oil leak may develop from the distributor O-ring seal. A new O-ring seal will be needed to correct this leak.
