Question about 1994 Mercury Tracer

1 Answer

1993 mercury tracer has me stumped

Here is the problem. Timing belt broke replaced that. Car will not start. Now with that being said all the fuses are good had the relays checked they are also good, new fuel pump, new fuel filter. when you turn the key on the fuel pump doesn't run. if you jumper the dlc it will run only after you try to start the car, not just when you turn the key on like it should. when you try to start the car it fires runs for a second and dies during this time you can hear the fuel pump running and the relay kicking off. oh yeah the relay under dash doesnt click when key is turned on either. tested wiring to the pump and light on tester only lights up when you try to start car not when key is on. im starting to lean towards an ignition problem...oh yeah the inertia switch is fine too
any help would be great.....thanks

    i have yet to check the voltage at the pump. Am i wrong or should i have power to the pump with just the key on.

  • peewee105 Jan 18, 2009

    i realize the pump only runs for a few seconds when key is turned on. pump does not run at all when you turn key on. should run with key on when dlc is jumpered but doesn't until you try to start it....then it will run non stop like its supposed to while jumpered. so its not like im getting the initial power to the pump.

    NO the pump will not run all the time with the key on .It only runs for a few seconds when you first turn the key on it should light up a test light though when ever you are cranking the car over

This is usually the case when the belts are not tight enough. It may also happen if there was some oil spilled on one of the pulleys or something that would cause some slippage and wear on the belts. Most likely because they aren't tight enough.

1993 Mercury Tracer backup lights won't light even after replacement. Must be a fuse. But fuse box deoesn't have a label for the backup lights. Must be connected to another fuse. No owner manual....


Go to autozone.com and register for free. Registration will give you access to manuals for your car, one of which will have a diagram of the fuse panel with an explanation of each fuse.

The timing belt should not have been affwcted. Sounds like you have everything chk'd and accounted for.. The best way to chk the cam and crank is a compression test.

Does a broken timing belt permanently damage a Mercury Tracer


depends on the Engine in the car.

1.9L SOHC (SEFI on Valve Cover)engine, no, they are non-interferance engines, put a new timing belt on it and go.

1.8 DOHC engine, yes, it will destroy the valves, head, pistons, and if really bad, the block too. These engines are interferance engines, where the valves just barely miss the piston as it comes up, and when the belt breaks it will hit the valves and destroy the engine.
