1995 Mercury Tracer ProblemsPower Steering Pump/Gearbox Problems Due to Fluid Contamination
Failure to change the power steering fluid can cause the fluid to become gray with metal particles. The contaminated fluid can damage the power steering pump resulting in a growling noise when the wheel is turned; the damaged pump will require replacement to eliminate the noise.. Life of the power steering gearbox and pump will be shortened if the fluid is not serviced regularly.
The distributor may become internally contaminated with engine oil because of an internal seal failure. This causes ignition failure because the distributor cap has filled with oil. If this happens, the car will not start.
1995 Mercury Tracer QuestionsWill an automatic transmission 2.0 from a 1997 fit/swap into a 1995 1.9? (1 answer)
We have a 1997 and 1999 for parts. Both have 2.0 engines with good transmissions and bad engines. We have a 1995 1.9 with a bad transmission, but good engine. We would like to know if the transmissions are exchangeable. Thanks!
Sometimes I can restart it a couple times to get the blower/windows/wipers to come on but then they will suddenly stop working when I'm on the road. I've been told it's the ignition electrical switch.
