Scheduled Maintenance for Your 1995 Mercury Tracer

What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 1995 Mercury Tracer?

Here’s Why 1995 Mercury Tracer Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Mercury Tracer to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Tracer could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. But how do you know what service to get and when? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Tracer, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1995 Mercury Tracer!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Mercury, your vehicle manufacturer. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Tracer's life, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1995 Mercury Tracer problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Mercury Tracer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1995 Mercury Tracer for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Tracer's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1995 Mercury Tracer? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Mercury Tracer battery. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Tracer stranded. Your Mercury Tracer won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1995 Mercury Tracer running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1995 Tracer. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1995 Mercury Tracer.

Maintaining your Mercury Tracer steering and suspension system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, perform Mercury Tracer suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Components within your Mercury Tracer's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Mercury Tracer services, you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Mercury Tracer engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning.

1995 Mercury Tracer Maintenance Questions

Take an active role in maintaining your 1995 Mercury Tracer. Get answers to common Mercury Tracer maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Mercury Tracer? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When should I switch my Mercury Tracer to high mileage oil? If your Mercury Tracer has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  • Can Mercury dashboard warning lights wait? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Mercury Tracer to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
