Engine Q&A 1989 Mercury Tracer

  • Why does the check engine light come on when I start my Tracer? Generally, your check engine light turning on upon ignition is not a bad thing. It’s just your Tracer firing up its circuits. The light should turn off in a bit, but come see us if it doesn't.
  • Why is my Mercury Tracer making engine noise? Strange engine sounds can be a sign something’s off in your Mercury Tracer. Knocking or tapping could be a symptom of low oil. Whistling could mean a belt is misaligned or there's an intake leak. Squealing can be traced back to a loose fan belt, and grinding might be a sign of brake problems rather than engine issues.
  • What could damage my Mercury Tracer engine? Certain driving habits can damage your engine and should be avoided. These habits include 'running on fumes,' revving the engine while still in Park, or pushing 'the pedal to the metal' before the engine has warmed up. Steer clear of these habits to help protect engine performance and efficiency.
  • Can I add water to my Mercury Tracer radiator? Only in emergencies. A 50/50 mix of coolant and water (or a pre-mixed) coolant is recommended. However, if you must keep driving when you're out of coolant, it's better to drive with water in your coolant reservoir than nothing.
  • Why did my Tracer engine suddenly stop? Your Tracer car engine could stop suddenly due to low fuel, electrical issues, overheating, a faulty ignition system, mechanical troubles, or sensor problems.
