Question about 2000 Mercury Sable

1 Answer

Will not start

I have to hit the cover of the battery to make it starts. But the problem went away each time I sent it for repairing, but it reoccurs after returning home. The battery is little over eleven months old and not loose connections were detected either.

Try to disconnect the contacts and clean them, put some grease on it, them reconnect the cables.
try to check also for the ignition relay, it might be loose, reconnect them if possible

i think you need to take the oil pan back off and take a good look at the rod bearings, this engine sounds a lot like upper end noise when the piston is hitting the bottom of the cylinder head because a rod bearing has spun.

Vehicle was parked and not started for 2 months.


Hi, there will be diodes in the generator that are letting the power from the battery drain away through the parked times when not in use. to prove it charge the battery- then disconnect the negative terminal on the battery, connect 24 hours later and see if the battery as kept it charge, if so - fit new alternator, good luck.

sounds like a broken timing belt,timing belts like to break during engine cranking and engine shut down. there are inspection holes in the timing cover,if you can't determine, remove top half of timing cover and check belt for slap,if there's slap,it's broke.

cold can play hell with electronics. if it happens again (provided the battery is the proper one for that vehicle) hit the accelerator and see if the lights go out. sometimes just a good warm up will rectify the issue. happy holidays

Flickering charge light


my car started running like ****, gauzes on dash went to 0 and then would shoot back to where they should of been. parked car, shut it off and then it wouldnt start back up. jumped it and drove home- the whole time it bucked and spitted and wanted to stall. had the alternator replaced and then immediately the volt light started to flicker- i have left my lights on numerous times which contributed to my needing an alternator so i went and got a new battery. so far so good. it has only been a couple of weeks since all of this happened so it might be a little premature to think that it is solved. but for now it works!
