Question about 1999 Mercury Tracer
Befor you make a call on the lifters you may want to see when the last time the timing belt was done and if there is no info as to when it was last done I would check the timing first and if the marks are off. the belt may be streched and that could be what is causing the niose.Even if the marks are on I would still change it or you could bend your valves. Im guessing the engine is a mazda engine and a 16v from what your decribing it sounds more like a timing belt and not lifters . If I am wrong I would reccomeng doing a oil change and use castrol 10w 30 synthetic its saved me several times.
