You will b lucky to even find any parts for it, 've been lookig for a couple of months. It wasn't that popular of a car + They have crushed just about all of them that wher in the junk yards.

did you mean a 1986 mercury linx? ifso the look for the following: ford escort 1985.5 -1990 1.9l engine, atx auto trans, mtx 4 and 5 manual trannies murcury lynx 1985.5 - 1988 same as ford ford tempo 1984-1994 2.3 l4, 3.0 v6, trannies same as escort murcury topaz same as tempo. the cars twin was a common car and the temp\topaz was based off of the escort. you should fine parts for it still. my first car was an 86 escort. this should a start. let me know if you need more info. i know them inside and out.

this should be a start. correction to my last post.
