1996 Mercury Tracer Repair and Maintenance

A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your 1996 Mercury Tracer

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.

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.
