SOURCE: 1994 mercury Topaz oil light is on and i do not need oil

Low Engine Oil Pressure

The oil light is signaling low oil pressure in the engine's lubrication system. You say that you have checked the oil level in the engine and it is ok.

The oil pressure needs to be checked with an oil pressure gauge. (It is most unlikely that the warning light is faulty).

Should the oil pressure prove to be low - as I expect it will - the cause needs to be investigated. It is likely that there is a malfunctioning or failed oil pump or the oil pressure relief valve is sticking in the fully open position.

Failure to change the engine oil, at least at intervals stated by the manufacturer, will result in severe oil degradation and reduced oil pressure. However this is usually not enough to trigger an oil pressure warning light.
If you have changed the engine oil in the last six months or so, and have not done over about 7000 miles since then, oil degradation should not be contributing to the low pressure problem.

If the oil pressure gauge check confirms low oil pressure I suspect, on further investigation, that you will find a problem with the engine's oil pump.

You will need to get your vehicle to a reputable auto service shop to have the oil pressure checked and the problem investigated. Do not drive the car in this condition (except to get it to the repairer). The engine is not receiving sufficient lubrication and you run the risk of expensive engine damage and total engine failure.

Hope all goes well with it. Cheers.

SOURCE: 1994 Mercury Topaz Fender Removal

Harbor Freight and most local body shop supply stores should have a suction-cup type tool for pulling out dents. You maybe able to remove the inner fender well to get to the dent. To remove the fender, you'll need to remove the top fender bolts, the bolts that attach it to the header panel, and the bolts holding it on back by the door.

Is there "Freeze Plugs" on a 1994 Mercury?


Virtually all engine blocks have freeze plugs. They serve two purposes:
  1. They are designed to burst out of the block in case the engine coolant freezes, preventing a cracked block.
  2. They allow for a more thorough cleaning of the engine block when the block is "tanked" during rebuild/remanufacture.
One thing to consider...what weight of motor oil are you using during the bitter cold months? Heavier weight oils get very thick on the cold mornings. This makes cranking harder and increases engine wear. Check with a local dealer and see if the manufacturer has any suggestions for a thinner oil in the cold months to make starting/running easier.

I have a leak from the oil pan ...of my 1992 mercury topaz and im needing to know what all i will need to do to repair it


You didn't list your engine size so please pick the approriate task:

2.0L Engine
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Raise the vehicle and support safely with jackstands.
  3. Drain the crankcase of oil.
  4. Remove the attaching bolts securing the oil pan to the engine.
  5. Clean the oil and gasket mating surface completely, and allow to dry.
To install:
  1. Apply a 1/8 in. (3.18mm) bead of silicone sealer D6AZ-19562-B or equivalent between the oil pan and engine crankcase.
  2. Install the oil pan using the attaching bolts. Torque bolt to 5-7 ft. lbs. (7-10 Nm).
  3. Lower vehicle, and fill crankcase with correct amount of engine oil.
  4. Start engine and check for leaks.

2.3L Engine
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Raise the vehicle and support safely with jackstands.
  3. Drain the crankcase of oil, and drain the cooling system by removing the lower radiator hose.
When draining coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted to ethylene glycol antifreeze, and could drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantity. Always drain the coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or several years old.
  1. Remove the roll restrictor if equipped with a manual transaxle.
  2. Disconnect the starter cable.
  3. Remove the starter from the vehicle
  4. Unfasten the bolts securing the rear oil pan to the transaxle case.
  5. If equipped with a manual transaxle, remove the secondary air injection tube at the check valve.
  6. Remove the heater supply tube located at the lower water pump inlet tube assembly.
  7. Loosen the bolts and remove the brackets at the block and water pump inlet tube and A/C compressor line at the pan.
  8. Using a prybar between the engine and body of car, flex engine enough the remove oil pan.
  9. Clean the oil and gasket mating surface completely, and allow to dry.
  10. Clean both mating surfaces of oil pan and cylinder block making certain all traces of RTV sealant are removed. Ensure that the block rails, front cover and rear cover retainer are also clean.
  11. Remove and clean oil pump pick-up tube and screen assembly. After cleaning, install tube and screen assembly.
To install:
  1. Apply a bead of RTV E8AZ-19562-A sealer or equivalent, in the oil pan groove. Completely fill oil pan groove with sealer. Sealer bead should be 0.200 in. (5mm) wide and 0.080-0.150 in. (2.0-3.8mm) high (above oil pan surface) in all areas except the half-rounds. The half-rounds should have a bead 0.200 in. (5mm) wide and 0.150-0.200 in. (3.8-5.1mm) high, above the oil pan surface.
Applying RTV in excess of the specified amount will not improve the sealing of the oil pan, and could cause the oil pickup screen to become clogged with sealer. Use ad equate ventilation when applying sealer.
  1. Install oil pan to cylinder block within 5 minutes to prevent skinning over. RTV needs to cure completely before coming in contact with any engine oil. Ideally, about 1 hour at ambient temperature between 65-75°F (18-24°C) is recommended as a drying time.
  2. Install oil pan bolts lightly until the 2 oil pan-to-transmission bolts can be installed.
  3. Install 2 oil pan-to-transaxle bolts. Tighten to 30-39 ft. lbs. (40-54 Nm) to align oil pan with transaxle. Loosen bolts 1/2 turn.
  4. Tighten all oil pan flange bolts to 15-22 ft. lbs. (20-30 Nm).
  5. Tighten 2 oil pan-to-transmission bolts to 30-39 ft. lbs. (40-54 Nm).
  6. Install brackets for A/C compressor line and water pump inlet tube.
  7. If equipped with a manual transaxle, fasten the air injection tube.
  8. Install the starter and cable.
  9. Lower vehicle.
  10. Install engine oil and coolant.
  11. Connect the negative battery cable.
  12. Start engine and check for coolant and oil leaks.
