There is no radiator cap on this car, the radiator is a sealed unit with the over flow tank and the pressure cap and the cap for the overflow tank is one and the same, and is located on the passenger side of the engine compartment. and is rated at 16 psi. It is set up like this due to the fact that the overflow tank is the highest point in the cooling system.

SOURCE: 2003 Mercury Sable gas cap light stays on!

make sure that the gas cap have a rubber gasket in it if it has accidentaly dropped off while you removed to fill the tnk it will not seal properly and create a vacum leak causing the ecm to turn on the light.

or did you have an accident or did you run over any thing that could have damaged the vapor canister at the bottom of the vehicle and if this is the case you will see the light on because a damaged canister can cause a vacum leak

Does a 1999 Mercury Sable have a vacuum modulator?

it has to be going somewhere , check your radiator (why) because the radiator cools the tranny in lower radiator, when you park your car put down cardboard and look at it in the morning

'99 mercury Sable with auto transmission: Hesitates a few seconds when shifting from Park to Drive. Seems to shift OK when driving.

Several things to do about this. Look in your Radiator reservoir for a oily sheen and do the same thing for the Radiator if it has a cap and is not sealed. Have the Trans fluid changed and the Trans filter serviced. If possible get a sample of the Trans fluid.

If both the fluids look normal you only need fresh Trans fluid and the Trans filter serviced. Some filters are replaceable and some are just screens which need periodic cleaning. If the fluids do not look good then the Radiator may be leaking into the Trans fluid via the cooling lines. The delay may be due contamination corroding the first of many parts.

The gear engagement is dependent on engine RPM. If, for some reason your motor is idling slower at Startup, the initial gear engagement will be delayed. You could also be down on fluid, which would mean another problem.

The chances of cross contamination are very slim, but it is mentioned because your shifting can be affected in small ways at first, then big costly ways. The self-diagnostics in your car does not cover this problem.

Take the time to check the reputation of the shop you deal with for this simple service.

My power windows will not work, and they make a clicking sound, sometimes I can open my door and close it and then they work. Also my heater does not get hot. My car is a 2002 Mercury sable.

Sounds like two different problems.

First the power windows: The power for your windows goes through a shielded cord that travels from the inside of the door to under the hood. If you open the door you can see this wire beside the hinges. If the wire is broken inside this shielding or shorted it will not work. Because you can open and close the door and sometimes it works. It sounds like an intermittent short.

The drivers side window button will make a clicking sound by the way it is made but the sound could be from inadequate voltage to the motor.

What I need to know is: Do any of the windows work? Do all of the windows make the clicking sound? Can you describe the sound in more detail?

The heater: Ford/Mercury radiators are known to get hot. So low heat is not common. The first thing to check, with the engine cold, is the fluid level. Normally the radiator has a cap to add fluid and look inside. However ford/mercury did not do this on many of the 2002 Sables. So you will have to look at the reservior. The big white tank on the side under the hood. It will be hard to read but there with be a cold line and a hot line on the side of the tank. With the engine cold the level should be above the cold line. If it is not then you will have to add radiator fluid and water (unless you buy premixed). This is the normal problem.

If this does not work then it can be the thermostat or temperature sensor. (The sensor will create an error code the thermostat probably wont). But check your fluid levels and tell me how it goes.
