1993 Mercury Tracer overheating after running 15 miles or so


possibly air trapped on engine side of thermostat-possibly. HOW TO BLEED: loosen coolant temp sensor. Start engine. As engine warms, slightly unscrew sensor to allow air to escape. Once a steady stream of coolant trickles out you're good. Let us know if this helps. Good luck.

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.

I have a 2000 plymouth breeze an it keeps runing hot. But...the temp gauge isnt sayin anythinys wrong but i can hear an smell it running hot. My fans are working. The 1st guy said that it might be my...


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. They all are right. Anyone of those parts can cause overheating. The most common issue is the thermostat though, followed by the water pump. You could have a defective coolant sensor. If you have a bad head gasket, it will cause overheating. If you change the water pump, change the valve and the impeller also. Do this. Check your coolant level first and make sure it is level. You said fans are good. Make sure the radiator is good and is getting fluid inside it. Make sure there are no leaks. Check all coolant hoses. Like I said, the most common issue is a sticking thermostat or a bad one. Next, I would say the water pump.

Is there white smoke coming out of the exhaust? If so either blown head gasket, crack in cylinder head or crack in engine block. If you line up the tree make a note to not buy another mystique I found them to be troublesome once they start giving trouble.

Smelled mild burning, lost antifreeze - engine temp Hot. I looked under car and noticed a serverly frayed Belt - NOT the big surpentine belt - another small belt on the driver's side. 1999 Mercury Mystique...


For the 1999 Mercury Mystique Water Pump Belt on 2.5L V6 Engine:

Probable Causes: Belt: worn out, started slipping. Overheating caused by failure of Belt. Lost antifreeze: caused by failure of belt, not turning Water Pump Pulley, not circulating anitfreeze, which resulted in overheating.

Click on the following free direct Link. It has the Serpentine & Drive Belt Diagrams and Tensioners for your 2.5L Engine.
Scroll down the Page (about 1/3rd down) to Diagram #G99H08189, it shows the specific Water Pump Belt.
Note the Tensioner.

Overheating problem


looks like you have done everything but the problem with your car is that the cylider head gasket has gone have a look at the dipstick or remove the oil filler cap if it looks like mayo then 100% head gasket has failed you said no water on the floor so it must have gone into engine only way this can happen is head gasket failing, if you have put lot of water in to the cooling system then your sump will be full of oil water mix.

let us know your findings so we can help you more if you need it
