Put in a new crank sensor, this is what puts the power to the coil.

The problem may be with the ignition control module or the pick-up coil inside the distributor. The module is a few hundred bucks and the pick-up is another fifty. I'm trying to get more info on troubleshooting this before you invest the money to replacing the Ignition control module. Good luck and hope this helps. In the mean time here is a link for you. http://mercury-capri-parts.com/2006/02/base-capri-versus-capri-xr2-turbo.html

Removing an alternator from a 1991 Mercury free xr2 turbo


Disconnect the battery so you don't melt your fingers. Remove the belt by relieving the pressure at the belt tensioner. Remove the alternator wiring harness and the two or 3 long bolts that hold the alternator on. Swap for the new alternator and put it all back together.

I have a 91 mercury capri xr2 5 speed and suddenly ive noticed that the clutch is not engaging synchronically as it usually does, ill let off the clutch pedal and the rpm's will shoot up way faste


It sounds like you have a worn out clutch. You need to remove the transmission and replace the clutch assembly and have the flywheel machined. Since this is a very expensive repair have a shop confirm my guess.

1991 mercury capri turbo xr2: are engine rebuild parts available, e.g., new pistons, rods, cranks, etc..


Your car looks like a Ford Capri engineered in Australia from a Mazda 323. These are quite common in New Zealand and Australia . Unfortunately they came out at the same time as the MX5 and didn't sell well.
Do a search on Google images for Ford Capri to see if they are the same. If they are parts are readily available ex Mazda

Solved most of this myself. Changed ING. module which solved spark problem. The injectors still would not function, help came from JUSTANSWERS by idenifying a relay tucked between the left headlight motor and the coolant recovery canister. Like the IGN. module, this relays not cheap. I found a $5 dollar used replacement from a self-pull wrecking yard from it's sister car, a 1988 mazda 323.
