1995 Mercury Tracer Engine Q&A

  • Why does the check engine light in my Tracer turn on when I start my car? It's okay if your check engine light comes on when you first start your vehicle. This is just your Tracer testing its circuits. The dash light shouldn't stay on. If it does, you might want to bring your vehicle in for service.
  • Why is my Mercury Tracer making engine noise? Strange engine sounds can be a sign something’s off in your Mercury Tracer. Tapping or knocking could mean you need an oil change. 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 coming from the brakes, not the engine.
  • What could damage a Mercury engine? [ordered-list-1-item-3-1]Are you unknowingly damaging your Mercury Tracer engine? Certain driving habits can hurt your engine. These habits include driving on an empty fuel tank, revving your engine while the vehicle is in Park, or accelerating too quickly, too soon. Help sustain your engine’s performance and efficiency by staying miles away from these bad driving practices.
  • Can I put water in 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.
  • What can cause a Tracer engine to suddenly stop? If your Tracer car engine suddenly stops, it could be due to overheating, low fuel, a faulty ignition system, sensor problems, electrical system trouble, or mechanical issues.
