The alternator light flickering, especially at higher rpm's, is a sign the brushes in the alternator are worn. Normally, the whole alternator is replaced. The alternator is located in a very unhandy place to work on, so its not a pleasant job for a do-it-yourselfer. I had the Mercury dealer replace mine with a rebuilt alternator a year ago, and the cost ran around $500. If the problem is just the alternator, there should be no need to replace the battery, unless it happens to be bad also.

Smelled mild burning, lost antifreeze - engine temp Hot. I looked under car and noticed a serverly frayed Belt - NOT the big surpentine belt - another small belt on the driver's side. 1999 Mercury Mystique...


For the 1999 Mercury Mystique Water Pump Belt on 2.5L V6 Engine:

Probable Causes: Belt: worn out, started slipping. Overheating caused by failure of Belt. Lost antifreeze: caused by failure of belt, not turning Water Pump Pulley, not circulating anitfreeze, which resulted in overheating.

Click on the following free direct Link. It has the Serpentine & Drive Belt Diagrams and Tensioners for your 2.5L Engine.
Scroll down the Page (about 1/3rd down) to Diagram #G99H08189, it shows the specific Water Pump Belt.
Note the Tensioner.

Cant find the fuel pressure regulator on a 2000 mecury mystique


This vehicle is most likely a returnless system,only one fuel line to the fuel rail. If it is returnless the fuel pressure regulator is part of the fuel pump module in the tank.

Battery light flickers


I would have the charging system tested. If the battery test bad check your warranty, many major brands have a free replacement period. The red battery light coming on when the engine is running often means the alternator is not putting out enough volts.
