Mercury Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello and welcome. Thank you for trusting us with your vehicle concerns, I will do my best to help you with your question.
What is the fuel pressure?
I have not had a chance to take a spin to see if over night miracle has taken place on flushed job! O yeah I forgot to mention that I added another bottle injector cleaning on top of full tank of fuel.
Did I mentioned that I observed no vacuum leaks when Valvoline was flushing the system. My thinking is there should have been white smoking pouring out all gaskets and ports?
Thanks for the come back, but I had one mechanic check the pressure after installing fuel filter under the hood. At that time he said it was O kay, but will get it check again.
Thanks for pointing me in right direction. I Will let you know how it turns out.
If you do not require further assistance, kindly rate my service.
One more question would the access to fuel pump be under rear seat?
I'm asking just in case everything go south from here. Thanks for the advice, because I'm running out of electrical parts to replace! (ha, ha)

Sorry about getting back late! I gave you excellent rating. I replaced fuel pump. Problem still persist, it seems to drive and shifts okay on level ground when it is warmed up from x-way drving but still lack power when climbing hills especially from a dead stop max. 30 mph and it seems to stay in low gear until it gets to a certain point of level then it might take off or the rpm will race.
Thanks Jerry for information. I have nothing to really compare the capri to, since all I ever own big V-8's and 4.0 six. I 'm trying this one from junk yard!
Is it possible for it to be a transmission problem. I will get compression check again but was told it was okay at one time. Thanks again I will
Thank's will keep you informed on progress. Excellent advice!
Hey Jerry! Thanks for advice on power loss. Replacing fuel pump was easy enough. Still not problem. I went back over a mechanic work and found the timing off. Shooting in dark without timing light I loosen distributor turn clockwise marking each move until I found sweet spot.
Runs good now, thanks! Trans seems to be shifting better also. I am slowly making adjustments on idle with throttle cable and Idle screw.
