Hey there MSM,

  • Get a 14mm or 9/16" socket and a long handled ratchet or breaker bar.
  • Get the belt around all the pulleys except the A/C compressor or Alternator. The routing diagram is on one of the radiator supports.
  • The tensioner pulley is near the Alternator toward the center of the engine. It's on a spring loaded arm. Get your socket on the center nut of this pulley.
  • Slowly pull the ratchet toward the center of the engine. The pulley will pivot on the arm allowing you to get the belt on the final pulley.
  • Slowly release the tension.
  • You're done

SOURCE: Does a broken timing belt permanently damage a Mercury Tracer

depends on the Engine in the car.

1.9L SOHC (SEFI on Valve Cover)engine, no, they are non-interferance engines, put a new timing belt on it and go.

1.8 DOHC engine, yes, it will destroy the valves, head, pistons, and if really bad, the block too. These engines are interferance engines, where the valves just barely miss the piston as it comes up, and when the belt breaks it will hit the valves and destroy the engine.

Depends on the main fault, Dealer = $380.oo to 480.oo Good local garage about half and if you clean the car real good maybe even less, we like working on good well keep clean cars. Remove any thing that might get gone - of value. Mostly we do not like the stuff in our way (if it is a dash problem) and if for any reason something falls under the seat and you can't find it you feel ripped off.

Replacement of oxygen sensors on a 1997 Mercury Tracer LS. Sell the Tracer and buy a Ford Focus, or 2010 Chevy Cobalt, or a new Chevy Cruze, or a Ford Fiesta. This solution is best if your Tracer has over 130,000 miles on it.

How to put the timing belt back into my car a 1994 Murcury Tracer. The timing belt had came off the car and I had to go new timing belt to put back into the car and I have no idea how to put a timing belt...


if you have no idea then this is not something you are going to wanna attempt. It is a very delicate proccess. And if you get it wrong you will ruin your engine. By ruin i mean blow it up. The engine has to be exactly in time or it will ruin your valves
