Question about 1999 Mercury Tracer
Other than the idle control/throttle sensor the other items will not usually cause bucking or change of idle. After you drive awhile from a cold start the coolant temp sensor comes into play,then the EGR valve if vacuum is involved under load. So I quess your mechanic missed monitoring the 02 sensors after testing the fuel system. Hard to imagine. Have to road test hot for Egr and other drivability issues. You need a good drivability tech and always stick with best in their field. Hard to find. Have you ever gone for a drive with the person going to work on your car sitting in the pass seat. If they don't insist on that before they ever look at your veh or take your money--enough said. Did they call you to see if your happy with their performance? If not move on. MAF,AIT, most likely on idle and EGR on bucking. Quick look at 02 sensors You or they did a good job,Just didn't hit a home run,still on second base.
