I’m giving away my parent’s 1997 Mercury Tracer. It has 60,000 miles on it.
I’m trying to find the recommended Timing Belt replacement schedule, so I can tell the people who I’m giving it too how soon they need to replace it.
I can’t find the Ford documentation, but Gates says “inspect at 120,000.” This seems very, very long - almost 2x every other vehicle. If this is accurate, why this long interval?
Also, does this agree with the actual Ford interval?
