Question about 1996 Mercury Sable
To replace the transmission you will need to:
lift the vehicle
support then engine using a hoist
Support the transmission using a hoist
Unbolt the motor mounts (There are 4 of them)
Lower the engine 8 - 10 inches
Unbolt the transmission
Lower the transmission
Raise up the new transmission and follow the steps in reverse.
Trust me, this is NOT fun :( the top transmission bolt is REALLY hard to get to.
