It means that the computer has detected a fault. You have a couple of options. You can buy an inexpensive code reader for about $50 and pull the codes yourself. You can call your local parts store to see if they can do this for you. You can bring your vehicle to a local shop and have them run a diagnosis. There is usually a charge for this. Let me know what codes you have and I'll be happy to help you further.

there should be a diagram of the belt under the hood : ibelieve it is on top of the radiator fan cover.
A merc dealer should be able to give you a print out. Or maybe an auto parts store.

There are also two serpentine belt types for the 2002 sable. The S and U type engine. Take the old belt with you the the parts store. As for the diagram, I googled it under images and about a dozen correct ones came up. Remember the 2002 sable is the same as the 2002 Tarus.

SOURCE: i have a 2004 mercury sable .how do i change the

Loosen the bolt on the alternator until it slips freeing the belts tension, from there slip it off all the pulley's and put the new one on the same way. you may need a crow bar or something similar to apply force to the alternator to get the belt tight again while tightening the bolt you loosened earlier to loosen the belt. Make sure that every bolt or nut that you loosened is tight again. If your an average male; apply near all your strength onto the alternator to tighten the belt, just not all of it or you will over tighten it. If your a female: take your anger out on it, you won't break it, and if you do, i wouldn't want to get into a fight with you. BFD8B15.gif

I need to find out what size serpentine belt to get to bypass ac compressor for 2005 mercury sable v6


I believe they may make a different idler bracket to compensate for the change. You need a certain belt length for the Alternator and water pump to work properly at a given engine rpm. If you change the belt length, the alternator and water pump will turn either slower or faster than designed.

What size belt do I need to bypass Mercury Sable AC Compressor


I had to do the same thing on my Toyota Avalon. I used a flexible cloth measuring tape to measure around the pulleys (minus the A/C, of course). I had to cut the pulley off the Avalon A/C compressor because of interference issues. You may or may not have to do the same.

I have a 1999 Mercury Sable. The only problem I have had with the car is the serpentine belt. It started 3 months ago . . . the engine was overheating and the belt was shredding. I bought a belt...


is the a/c working ok??? shredding the belt may be cause by the a/c compressor problems. the "chunk" maybe not, but shredding tells me something does not spin when it should. I dont know why the mehanic put a new pump on that had a problem with the pulley, it should be smooth. anyhting that the belt runs should be smooth and east to turn, make sure that all of the grooves are clean, no remnants of the old belt.

You will need an alternative wrench. The alternator wrench will grab the alternator for you and allow you to move the alternator to make the belt extremely tight. However, depending on which engine you have, you may have a serpentine belt which is tightened automatically with an tension wheel. If this is the case you have the wrong size belt and need to obtain the correct, smaller belt.
