Where do I put automatic transmission fluid for a 1995 mercury mystique?

you have to have a funnel and you put it in the same place you check it at. You remove the dipstick and put the funnel in the hole and pour it in. You do have to keep checking it to make sure you are not putting in to much

Drive belt tension shaking mercury mastique

Just because you replace hose, this should not have overheated engine. You need new automatic tensioner pulley.

Because you overheat, you need to have a pressure test done, you could have warped the heads.

Replace tensioner, get pressure test, make sure coolant level is right, check to make sure fan's come on when engine reaches temp after thermostat opens. Now after all test check ok, belt not slipping, see if you still lose power.

What is the Procedure for removal of the radiator fan from the Mercury Mystique(1996 model)

I had the same problem with my Mystique. It ended up being a plug on the top side of the fuse box. The plug had overheated and melted, causing a bad contact to the circuit. Start by pulling the fuse box out from under the dash. It is modular and will just unplug from the circuits. Look for a burnt spot or overheated wires. We found a new plug at a junk yard.
