1998 Mercury Sable: car will not start, cranks over but no spark from spark plug wire. Is there a fuse or is there something not hooked up? Do I need a new coil?


If you have no spark, I would test the crankshaft position sensor. If it's not that then probably the coil pack. Without a crankshaft sensor signal, you will get no spark. Same goes for the coil pack. I would bet on the crankshaft position sensor being bad. Good luck.

Trying to find out if 2000 Mercury Sable 3.0 ODHC has coil pack or individual coils ... and how to test / locate ... car sometimes hesitates and stutters


f a coil pack, you will have 6 spark plug wires coming out of a coil pack.

If individual, you will have no psark plug wire but a coil mounted above each spark plug

I have a 1996 mercury sable that wont srat i pulled up at home about 2 hours later tried o leave and it did not start, i checked the coil pack for a spark and it gave no fire, so i replaced the coil pack...


Probably the crank sensor, do you hear the fuel pump 'buzz' when you turn on the key (not cranking the engine, just key on)? If you do hear the fuel pump (only lasts about 2 seconds), it may be the ignition module, otherwise it is probably the crank sensor.

2004 Mercury sable was driving good except when we drove up a hill, then it would start cutting out on and off. Had a scan run and they said it was the coil packs. We replaced them with packs from...


You don't replace all the coils,only one or
at most two,that fail

Codes won't always tell you which one to replace

What about the EGR Valve,disconnect the
vacuum hoses, plug and test up hills
