Question about 1997 Mercury Sable
My wife was driving through a sever storm the other night during which she had to go through some very deep puddles of water. Her powersteering stopped working as well as what i presume to be the alternator because the battery light is now on and the battery isnt charging.when we took it to a local mechanic he said he cannot do anything until he replaces the harmonic balancer which he wants to charge $500 to do alone.What has that got to do with anything and what do you think the problem is?
The harmonic balancer is what the pulley that drives the power steer pump and alternatoer is bolted to, if it is no longer servicable then there is no way to make the other parts work.Ibelieve that your mechanic is correct as there are really no other explanation for the symptoms you describe
