I wrote while ago thanks for the help now my 1991 mercury capri is rattling I have been told it is the cover plate for cat. coverter how do i tighten it? Also clutch feels weak how to tighten?

Sometimes a stainless hose clamp cam stop the rattles, sometimes it takes a spot or 2 of welding.

If your Capri is not an XR2, then you have hydraulic clutch, no adjustment is possible. If it doesn't work right, the master or slave clutch cylinder may be going bad, time to replace them. good luck...Chris

Clean the idle speed control valve and the throttle body of the engine and that should correct this.

On my 1991 mercury capri turbo 1.6 put new timing belt on still wont start my question is. does it matter which way the cams go other than lining the timing marks up

The cams make 2 complete rotations for every 1 rotation of the crank so you could be out of time by 180 degrees.With the valve cover off turn the engine over by hand. As #1 piston comes up on TDC the intake valves should be open and starting to close. As you go past TDC the exhaust valves should start to open. If this is not what is happening in this order then your timing is off. Your engine should be at TDC when the timing marks are lined up with the marker on the engine. Hope this helps.

I need to replace the alternator belt on my 1991 Mercury Capri

This is easiest to get to if you drive the car up on ramps and work from both underneath and above.
Remove the undercage protective shields to expose it.
Belt will cost about $10.
