When to Change 1993 Mercury Tracer Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Mercury Tracer’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Your 1993 Tracer’s oil should be changed according to Mercury’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Mercury-recommended oil change intervals, your Tracer may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Mercury recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Mercury Tracer. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

1993 Mercury Tracer Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Mercury Tracer? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Mercury Tracer engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Mercury oil on my own? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Mercury Tracer spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
