The idle is controlled by the computer. The idle speed cannot be adjusted. Is it idling too high or too low?

    Hi hurckesj, the idle drops and then goes up and down, mainly when the engine is cold though, I have seen on the books something about an idle control valve? Thanks.

    I would check all your vacuum hoses for leaks, especially the PCV Valve hose. A hunting idle usually indicates an unmetered air leak.

My brake lights on my 1999 mercury tracer will not go out. how do I fix them?

They're is a part called a Brake Switch right in front of your pedal. This works the opposite of most switches, as in when you press the pedal and the button is released, your brake lights come on. It's possible that it needs to adjusted or even replaced. Hope this helps.
