Mercury Tracer Distributor Shaft O-Ring Seal May Leak Oil
Mercury Tracer Problem
Engine Affected: 2.0L 4 Cylinder
Visitor, 1998 Mercury Tracer, 2.0L 4 Cylinder, 97,800 mi
I had a very small oil leak I could not find. Just one or two drops of oil per night. It did not seem to increase when running and it only leaked less than half a quart in 4 months. Took it to a mechanic and he found the leak with some kind of dye. and Replaced the O ring. Cost was about $100 total.
