About Mercury Capri

As a nameplate being used on several models for years, Mercury Capri was built by Ford of Europe AG, a subsidiary company of Ford Motor Company between 1970 and 1977, Lincoln-Mercury Division of Ford Motor Company between 1979 and 1986 and Ford Motor Company of Australia Limited from 1991 to 1994 as sports car, pony car and roadster. But the most famous and recent 1991-1994 Capri is what buyers interest, so we will focus on the third-generation one. Competing against the Mazda MX-5 Miata, Alfa Romeo Spider and Nissan 240SX, Capri still was discontinued after the 1994 model year.
Mercury Capri made its debut in the North American market for the 1991 model year as the renamed version of Ford Capri. It was offered in only one body style, a 2-door roadster but came in two trim levels: base and XR2. Capri received a minor cosmetic update in 1994 such as front and rear bumpers and taillights. During its lifetime, Mercury Capri was powered by a 1.6 L DOHC inline 4-cylinder engine rated at 100 horsepower and a 1.6 L turbocharged inline 4-cylinder engine cranking out 132 hp, both engines sent power through either a 4-speed automatic or a 5-speed manual transmission to the front wheels.

Mercury Capri Common Problems & Maintenance Tips

Offering a considerably large trunk and the additional space for gear provided by the back seat, Mercury Capri was suitable for extended trips with friends. But considering its age, you had better pay more attention to these common problems on Capri:
First, engine failure unsurprisingly becomes the most common and serious issue on the Mercury Capri since it is an old vehicle bordering on breaking down. However, you still have ways to slow down and even prevent the breakdown if you know how to diagnose and solve it before it results in horrible consequences. According to experienced Capri drivers, this issue often starts with strange sounds such as whining, squealing and rattling from the engine; then it evolves in engine running roughly, misfiring, and stalling; before the vehicle fails to start or suffers from hard starting, you need to be alert about the excessive oil consumption and loss of power when accelerating. It is certain that the illuminated Check Engine Light is the most obvious sign for you to inspect the Capri spark plug, air filter, oil filter, body control module, rod bearing, throttle body and ignition coil.
Second, since suitable for driving for trips, Mercury Capri must experience all kinds of road conditions, which is harmful to its suspension system. And the suspension system is supposed to offer a comfortable and steady ride for occupants but on Capri, the suspension failure is a big problem. And the suspension failure on the Capri not only brings about noisy sounds such as clunking or grinding to distract the drivers' attention while driving, which is also the reason of uneven tire wear and tilting vehicle; but the poor handling caused by intense car vibration, unintentional steering and loose steering wheel will also appear. In case you get in trouble results from above symptoms, please make sure the Capri wheel bearing, shock absorber, sway bar bushing, coil springs, coil spring insulator, control arm and trailing arm.
However, simply depending on solving above mentioned common problems on your Mercury Capri could not guarantee you a perfect ride, you still need to perform routine maintenance on some vulnerable auto parts to decrease the possibility of fatal accidents. After all, some auto parts are vital for safe and comfortable driving but work always under harsh conditions. Thus, please maintain the Capri door handle, windshield wiper, wiper blade, seat belt, fog light, headlight, cabin air filter and antenna routinely as they conform to above requirements and they are all exposed to harsh working conditions to provide a safe and comfortable driving environment.
