Question about 2000 Mercury Sable

1 Answer

2000 sable wont go into gear

I have a 2000 mercury sable.  The other night, we were driving, and we heard a loud snapping noise, like a belt broke.  At the point, the car just stopped, but the engine was still running.  I can turn the car on, but it makes a whining noise from the engine or transmission, and wont go into gear. Does this sound like a busted trans belt, or can it be fixed with lucas additive or another quick fix?
Thanks

No quick fix. If you are lucky, it is just the flexplate snapped loose from the torque converter. There is usually a door that you take off to access the 4 bolts that hold the flex plate to the converter. Remove that door to see if the bolts have sheared off.

Check your vacuum hoses (They are 3/8" Rubber hosing on the right side of the engine, you will need to remove the air intake piping (Also remove the throttle body to make accessing them easier) This is the #1 cause of high idling in the 3.0 OHV and 3.0 DOHC sable engines.

My 2000 Sable won't move though gear selector appears to be in tack. Was making a left turn heard a loud pop on the right front side of the car then what appeared to be a rubbing or scraping noise...


the problem has to be in the linkage inside the transmission which means that you have to take into a mechanic to have them fix this because if you do not know how to take the transmission apart yourself is the reason why to take it to the nearest mechanic. Sorry

96 Mercury Sable (Serpitine belt)


there should either be a whole for a ratchet or there is a nut on the tension pulley that you will have to size a socket to. put either tool on and pull in the direction of up( you'll see what i mean when you get there). be gentle once you have the belt in place not to let it snap back into place so as to not cause any damage anywhere else.
