Question about 1996 Mercury Tracer
Hello all, my 1996 mercury tracer is overheating to the point that the resovour tank is boiling and the engine is smoking. It's a 1.9 liter and I've never had this problem before.
I have a 93 Mercury Tracer with the 1.9L and I had about the same problem. I started with the thermostat, then the water pump, and eventually the head gasket which fixed the problem.

Start cheap... change the thermostat. usually the problem.
does the fan under the hood work? has the fan been over working (on all of the time)?
does the upper radiator hose look like it wants to burst when the fluid boils over? thermostat.
are you leaking antifreeze that you can see?
have you or anyone else put any type of chemical (other than antifreeze) in the cooling system?
just covering some other related grounds with the questions.
