Mercury Capri Problems

Engine -- Verified

An alternator pulley, of the incorrect size, installed at the factory can be the cause of drive belt failure and illumination of the battery light. The alternator pulley should be inspected and replaced as necessary if the drive belt brakes. When the new belt installed, it must be adjusted to the proper tension.

Miscellaneous -- Verified

Fitment and deterioration of weatherstripping on mating surfaces of the convertible top can cause water to leak in the interior. The contour of the roof can also contribute to the leak problems. Foam can be added to bolster the contact points where leaks occur and / or the weatherstrips can be replaced where they are deformed.

Miscellaneous -- Verified

Faulty material in manufacturing could cause the inside door pull handle to break. Both handles should be replaced.

Exhaust & Emissions -- Verified

If a buzzing noise is coming from the exhaust at different engine speeds and conditions, this is commonly caused by the heat shields on catalytic converters coming loose at points. The buzzing is the metal on metal contact. Installing a large worm clamp around the catalytic converter and heat shield assembly will prevent the noise and secure the shields.

Mercury Capri Reviews

got a 92 non turbo only 100hp makes it a little slow but it shifts nice runs good too, 18 years old and the body is amazing condition, downfall is the top was worn out pretty badly but they are kinda cheap to the most part. most defenently worth getting one if you find one. I only payed $800 for a good condition car with only 78,000 miles on it. deal so far.

good car to drive good on gas and fun to drive on the weekend let the top down and drive on the hot sun good for short trip to the beach.

Oh the top leaks and rips easy, the plastic rear window fogs up bad.

I have owned my 1994 Mercury capri for 12 years. I needed a distributer 8 years ago, and the fan belts squeal on occasion. The air conditioning has not worked since I bought it when it was 4 years old. Heater blower motor only works on high. The plastic around the light bulbs in the rear melts. The engine is reliable and peppy. Well, I guess peppy is a matter of perspective. 100 HP for the automatic. Turbo's are much more fun and very very rare (366) This car has been the best bang for the buck car I have ever owned.

A fun car. Not a lot of power/pick up on the lower end engine. Soft top has a bunch of leaks, but otherwise simple design and solid construction. No real mechanical trouble
