Question about 1998 Mercury Tracer
Both times it was raining but not sure that is the issue. After the first time I went back the next day and it started and ran perfectly for another 60 + miles to bring home and continued to be fine for a week including during heavy rain. I checked ignition, cleaned and added dielectric grease to plug wires (plugs and wires are 1 year old), coil pack connector and ECU connector. Wiggled PDC connectors, ect.
After break my daughter is driving back to school (again raining) and it died again. It will run for about 1/4 mile getting progressively worse. Not a on/off failure. Wouldn't restart on the way back home after taking her to school (sat for 3 hours).
It might be electrical / wiring but can run good with rain. Seems to be more distance / tiime. I'm thinking fuel filter, relay, pump?
U can go to any autozone, kragen or other chain auto parts stores and they will run the trouble code test for free, let me know what they find if anything, this also may be a fuel pressure problem
