Mercury Topaz Problems

Engine Cranks, but will Not Start - No Fuel Pressure

Fuel pump failure can cause the engine to crank but fail to start. Diagnosis will show insufficient, or no fuel pressure, and fuel pump in the fuel tank will need to be replaced.

Speedometer Operation Affected and Poor Transmission Shift Quality

The vehicle may lose vehicle speed signal, which can affect speedometer operation and transmission shift quality. Most often the Vehicle Speed Sensor is faulty, however, at times, the driven gear inside the transmission is at fault. Replace the Vehicle Speed sensor and inspect the driven gear upon sensor removal.

Knocking Noise or Lifting Sensation on Acceleration

Poor rubber material used in the motor mounts can cause them to fail, leading to a knocking noise or lifting sensation on acceleration. The motor mounts will need to be replaced with revised parts.

Mercury Topaz Recalls

Ford Recalls 1992-1995 Models Due to Engine Fan Issue

Ford has recalled certain 1992-1995 Taurus and Mercury Sable models with 3.8L engines, 1994-1995 Taurus and Mercury Sable models with 3.0L engines, 1992-1994 Tempo and Mercury Topaz models with 3.0L engines, 1994 Tempo and Mercury Topaz models with 2.3L engines, and 1992-1994 Lincoln Continental models in certain cold weather states for an issue with the engine electric cooling fan. During high winds, low temperatures, and drifting snow, the fan could become blocked or frozen with snow. This could cause the fan not to rotate and ultimately overheat. Dealers will install a harness with a circuit breaker to protect the fan motor from overheating.

Mercury Topaz Reviews

I have a 1988 Mercury Topaz, but I am having problems with engine leaks and my Fan will not shut off. WHAT CAN I DO AND WHAT DO I NEED TO REPLACE?
I love this car. Bought it off a girlfriend for 400. bucks, 3 yrs ago, ole blue hasn't let me down. I replaced serptine belt and hydrolic balancer. With regular tune ups and maintainence she runs like a gem. Only issue is heater in winter freezes, simple piece of card board solved that. Great car, cheap, easy on gas, no issues with oil l;eaks... Low insurance and NO payments!!!!!
over all i like this car
