First, you will get more response in the boat or outboard section of Fixya. You are listed under Cars and Trucks.

It will also help if you state the Year and size of the motor. If I remember correctly, some of the motors had screen filters for the fuel and some had individual feed lines to each cylinder.

Check your fuel lines so you know that you are not drawing air instead of fuel. Also if this is a 4 cycle motor, they had a low oil cutouts and they can work so fast that you would not detect a miss, just a drop of RPM.

Sparkplugs are reasonable, throw in a new set , keep the old ones for emergencies and see if that helps.

Relist in proper section if my solution does not work. Please rate.

Yes,check the fuel pressure & filter. There's about a million other things to cause this,so start simple. Ask again if this doesn't help.

Fan switch only works on high


It is very likely that the blower motor resistor has burned out. The resistor uses several resistors to drop voltage which drops the fan speed. Since high speed requires no drop in resistance it bypasses all the resisitors. Since none of the lower speeds work I would belt that the resistor for the setting just under high speed has burned out out. since all the other lower speeds use that resistor. Sometimes they will also have a non-serviceable internal fuse that will blow.

Ac blower motor


Check fuse supplying fan is not blown,
Check blower control switch is operating OK,
Check relay controlling fan is operating OK,
Check variable speed resistor pack is not faulty (the resistor pack is usually located in the blower ducting, in the blower airflow),
Check blower motor ground connection is not missing.

98 Mercury Tracer idle drops at a dead stop and continues to run rough at normal driving speeds. Freeway or in town. Changed plugs / wires/ fuel filter and IAC motor. No changes in performance. Any...


Could be either the ignition coil or an injector problem whereby the latter could be caused by impending failure of the on-board computer.
Check with any chain parts store in your area by phone and ask if they offer a free code check for your car.
Even without a check engine light, you may have a code (or more) stored in the ECU.

Blower motor works on high speed only


Drop by your local Ford/Mercury dealer & ask for a blower motor resistor, and ask if Ford is doing anything to help owners with this problem, as it well known that water getting in to blower motor is causing this. You might want to call a local autoparts store for their price on it before you go to dealer, just in case of big price difference.

1996 mercury sable speed hand and drives in strain and ****


I hace a 19196 sable-the problem is the transaxle speed sensor-this part sends all speed info to the computer ..-First symptom(speedometer stops working and then transmission shifts erratacially and power steering becomes hard and engine light comes on..The computer on this all eletronic car cannot send proper signals to the speedo-trans-power steering and other functions without knowing how fast or slow the car is going..Have the SPEED SENSOR mounted on top of the tranaxle replaced and all will be well.Part is not to expensive.labor can vary depending whether you have 3.0OHV or DOHC engine-some cars have to have exhaust dropped to get at it-Good Luck All
