Either you have a pully that has a bad bearing, or the belt tension is going bad. One of the two will cause this.

You probably have an aftermarket alternator, Some come with the wrong pulley installed. You cannot swap pulleys because the shaft is different. This is a very common complaint for this car. Find an original equipment alternator off ebay or a junk yard, you'll see the difference on the pulleys...good luck...blueamber... I have owned 6 of these cars

A part called an Inertia sensor may have shut off power to your fuelpump. Check your owners manual for the location of this switch. It may be on the side of the trunk beneath the carpet or under a kickpanel by your feet. The part has a button which needs to be pushed to reset it. Hold the button for 2-3 seconds and you should be good.

The Inertia switch is a Fire safety switch for collisions and sometimes trips with a door slamming. If unsuccessful with starting listen for the fuelpump when you turn the Ignition key. If still no noise, then check your fuses or contact Autozone or Oreillys about a fuelpump relay or fuse.

Other component problems usually register in your onboard computer. You should see the "check engine" light on the dash. This would point to a problem other than the Inertia switch which does not give a warning.

Huge, really ugly job, because this is one of the worst design flaws I've ever seen... and I'm assuming we're talking about the front wheels. Get this. You have to separate the hub from the steering knuckle using a hub puller designed specifically for the Capri (it's in the Ford tools catalog). Then once you've replaced the lug (and/or the brake rotor and/or the wheel bearings and/or the wheel seals - because all of those require the same proceedure too) the hub needs to then be pressed back into the steering knuckle using a hydralic (or similar) press... which no doubt would consist of also pulling the knuckle to achieve). Impressed? Yes, so was I.

You have either a blown head gasket, a cracked block or a cracked head. The head has to be removed to fix the cheapest problem, the head gasket so, make sure the block & head get checked too.

I'll give you a couple of options:

Your local Autoparts Store, they will sell you a OEM replacement, or, for half price, you can get a universal reservoir tank, easy to install and gets the job done.

There are a couple of web sites who specialize in used reservoir tanks, kind of a junk yard for coolant tanks. They test the tanks before putting them up for sale and give you a decent waranty and you can have it delivered in a couple of days. (I got one about 8 mos. ago for a 99 Intrepid and had no problems).

Your last option is to get it from the dealer, probably had to order it and, will be a bit expensive.

Good luck!!!!

check your inertia switch and press the button on it for a couple of seconds. This part cuts out the fuel pump in collisions and sometimes just the right bump closing the trunk or door will trip it. This part is usually in the trunk on most cars.

Owners manual? Or under hood,side of console?

Mercury Capri... | Answered on May 23, 2018

It's probably not the alternator. The problem is either the belt is being overtightened or one of the other belt-driven accessories is bad.

What you really want to do is have a technician remove the oil sending unit and attach a pressure gauge of known reliability. Only then can you know if your pressure is good or bad.

If you have to change an oil pump, you can have problems reaching it. You may be able to find a Video or text online for your exact model. The Capri series covers a lot of Years and the engines may be different and one year may be a front wheel drive while an older one may be rear wheel drive.

One of the biggest problem is having clearance to remove the oil pan. Sometimes in the closest clearances turning the crankshaft can help make room to drop the oil pan.

Front wheel drive units can have a cradle which blocks pan removal. You need to find out the requirements for your exact year.

The pressure test will help diagnose other problems. Bad bearings can leak so much oil that pressure will behave exactly like you describe.

Need more details. Could be fuel delivery (bad fuel pump or clogged fuel filter) or your coil went bad not sending a spark to the spark plugs. Start there and see what you find.
