Question about 1993 Mercury Tracer

1993 mercury tracer

I have no idea what's wrong with my Tracer. I made several attempts to jump start the car, but the car died after minutes or driving a couple hundred yards. Plus, the tachometer is pegged out. I am sure the battery is weak due to corroded cables, but the pegged tachometer is what is throwing me off. What causes this and how can it be resolved?

To replace the headlight on a 1993 Tracer you must turn the black plastic retainer ring counter clockwise and then pull back gently. The ring and bulb should then slide out toward the engine.
Carefully grab the sides of the plug and pull the bulb out.
When replacing the bulb make sure not to touch the glass part or it will cause the bulb to burn out sooner. Place the black ring back over the bulb with the open end towards the glass part of the bulb. Fit the wiring onto the back of the bulb and insert the bulb back into the reflector. The black plastic ring has notches that fit over protrusions. Turn the black ring clockwise and your done. Test the headlight. Happy Driving

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.

Noisy fan acceleration with air conditioning on


This is usually the case when the belts are not tight enough. It may also happen if there was some oil spilled on one of the pulleys or something that would cause some slippage and wear on the belts. Most likely because they aren't tight enough.

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
