    Can you clarify a couple of things? When you say it jumps,what is the RPM reading on the Tach from low to high? What other symptoms, if any? What engine size too? The easist way to hunt this down is with a scanner, do you have access to one?

If the idle jumps up and down you have a vaccum leak somewhere in the system look around the intake on the engine for a loose or miising hose

Whats making my 1999 mercury sable make a loud roaring sound while driving? and sometimes it stalls when stopping or slowing down.


Used tires sometimes are used for a reason. Also make sure your brakes are releasing completely (especially the emergency brake)...sometimes over-tightening wheels on to the disc brakes can cause excessive noise.

I have a 1999 Sable and the ABS motors seem to come on and off randomly. I cant aford to fix the problem. Perhaps pulling the fuse and disconnecting the ABS system would be an easy solution?


yes you can do this then car will revert to conventional braking system ,but the ABS motors do run randomly to maintain pressure so its nothing to worry about perhaps motors are a bit noisey which is why you can hear them ,I would advise you to leave well alone to be honest as i think teh system is working ok abeit a bit noisey

1999 Mercury Sable 24v OHC engine, starts normal but when engine begins to idle it runs rough and dies


this is a difficult one..
check for vacuum leaks by possibly a visual inspection and then spraying starting fluid around hoses , intake and so on..if any change, you might have found a vacuum leak/bad gasket.
otherwise, DO clean the Idle Air Control Valve 1st.
then check and clean EGR valve next..

1989 Mercury Sable GS 3.0L runs rough and idles down and stalls


Sounds like you might have a stuck open EGR valve. Is the check engine light on. I would replace the fuel filter if it hasn't been replaced, also check the air filter.
