1999 Mercury Tracer Problems

Engine -- Verified

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.

Engine -- Verified

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

Engine -- Verified

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.

Suspension & Steering -- Verified

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.
