Idle air control valve is a common problem Might check that first. Is it throughing a check engine light? with that I can help you further.

SOURCE: Engine runs rough after about ten minutes /idles really low

Just trowing some suggestions out there, but, I would check the idle air control valve (solenoid) or the throttle position sensor. If they check out then my last guess would be the map sensor or the vaccuum to the map sensor. Hope I was able to help. Best wishes.

Mine did the same thing. Try adjusting the idle. But if you adjust it too much it may run rich

SOURCE: 1997 Ford Contour with a rough idle while stopped

This is a common complaint on these cars. I own a 96 myself.
Assuming that you engine is fine and runs smoothly under normal operation, and just is rough "feeling" at idle while stopped; then I would suggest changing the motor mounts...the mounts may not be broken, but the rubber isolators get worn and soft, and transffer normal engine vibration into the chasis of the vehicle. Mine was doing the same after changing the mounts good as new again.
Please note...don't use cheap mounts, by the better grade/quality mounts.

I have a 97 Mercury Tracer with disk brakes in rear. I disconnected the emergency brake cable and loosened the bleed screw and cannot compress the cylinder to put new pads on. Is there a trick?


take a pair of channel locks and turn the caliper piston clockwise while pushing it in a little bit at a time until it is in all the way. Some pins on the back of them so they sit in the caliper right. make sure to line those pins up. They do make a tool to turn the piston but I have done it this way before. Hope this helps leave comment.

Automatic 97 Mercury Tracer Transmission?


There's a good possibility it's a transmission issue. The clicking is indicative that the gears inside are not meshing. Only way its repairable is to drop the transmission and once there, rebuilding it would be the next course of action. A used tranny would be less expensive but not by much and you never really know what you're getting. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news and best of luck to you.

I just bought a 1997 mercury tracer wagon with a 2.0 engine. We have a 1.9 engine that we thought came out of a 1997 ford escort. however from what I understand from wikipedia that did not have 1.9s in...


the 1.9 stopped being offered in 1996. it is very possible that your engine came from a later model run 96 or early model run 97.

but regardless the electronics are different and the engine will not run. sorry

Fuel Cut off switch location


your owner manual will tell you.

here is for 96 tracer. don't have 89 but suspect same place in trunk.


In the event of a collision, the electrical contacts in the IFS switch open and the fuel pump (9350) automatically shuts off. The fuel pump will shut off even if the engine (6007) does not stop running. The engine, however, will stop a few seconds after the fuel pump stops. It is not possible to restart the engine until the IFS switch is manually reset. The IFS switch is located on the RH side of the luggage compartment. Access is gained through a hole in the luggage compartment back lower trim cover (40374).

To reset the IFS switch, depress the button on top of the IFS switch.
