1996 Mercury Tracer Problems

Power 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.

Car won't start due to oil contamination in distributor

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.

Oil Leak From Distributor Shaft Seal

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.
