Problems with Mercury Sable 04/ stalls, engine light stays on

Engine light stays on when driving. Was driving into a driveway; all of a sudden without warning car stopped and would not start again. Many cars behind me; could have caused a crash. Got out of car and when I got back in again, the car started and I parked it. Sometimes while driving it like stalls (like a hiccup) for a second, jerks and then continues on. car vibrates while sitting at light or driving slow.

SOURCE: 98 mercury sable starts and

got me racking my one ameoba brain cell this one,and i cant think of anything that i have had like this sort of problem,except once with an old petrol commer truck many years ago,and the problem here was the inlet maniifold was loose.Now as this is obviously an auto then when the engine "kicks " as its dropped into gear then something is causing it to cut out .Now i suggest you check manifold nuts are tight first.Then check all the wiring connectors onto the sensors on the engine ,pulling the rubber covers back and checking the wires are connected and none broken or and undue bending that could have broken the copper inside the insulation.Then check the actual connectors themselves ,ensuring they are not broken or burnt.If you cant find anything then call out your local mobile mechanic as he will no doubt have a plug in tester and when engine cuts out it should show a fault??But if it is one of these sensors then iam at a loose end as to what one would cause this sort of fault because when i was at college we were still taught how to white metal and scrape the big end and crank bearings.Not to walk around with white coats and plastic pervert gloves and all looking like bill gates type nerds who can only talk about gigas and OBDII also wouldnt dream of changing a clutch on a big truck on the side of the road with only a trolley jack and a couple of pieces of 4x4 and a chain.Let alone sort out the truck driver and give him a right hander for burning the clutch out in the first place.

SOURCE: Mercury Topaz loses power while driving, and stalls out

Check fuel pressure. Sounds like a bad pump or plugged fuel filter.

SOURCE: 2002 Mercury Sable-shakes with acceleration

You describe this as an acceleration problem however, if the car does throw a check engine light it should be recorded in system memory so it can be pulled by scanning with and OBDII scanner. It sounds as if the car is being starved for fuel on acceleration. Check the fuel lines for kinks as well as check the fuel pressure. The problem could be a faulty fuel pump that has yet to completely die.

SOURCE: 2001 MERCURY SABLE ENGINE LIGHT ON. WAS COLD

Dear Eip55,
It sounds like the misfire monitor turned the check engine light on. What you are saying is the vehicle ran rough when started cold and as it warmed,it straightened out, but the check engine light stayed on. If what was causing the miss has corrected itself,you can try disconnecting the battery and let it sit for about ten minutes. Then reconnect the battery.This may allow the PCM to reset and the light to go out.
If the concern happens again tomorrow,you need to have the code pulled so you can get to the cause.
If you want to send me the code,I will be happy to look it up and give you some information. If you decide to do this,send me the engine size too.
Good luck,I hope this helps,Chuck

SOURCE: 2003 sable, How hard is it to replace the torque converter

I agree. It is not that hard to remove the transmission, but putting it back in is much harder, because it is heavy but delicate to install at the same time. The torque converter is not the problem. It does not have to be the transmission pump either, but the shaft that powers the pump. But again, too delicate to suggest doing unless you were good enough so that you would not have to ask.

My 1997 Mercury Sable stalls at stop lights


I had this problem recently. It ended up being the Fuel Pressure Regulator.
It is easy to check. It is in the front of the engine on the fuel rail. Pop off the vacuum line and see if there is gasoline present. If so, this means that the diaphram is bad and the regulator needs replacing. It worked for both my stalling, and hard to start when hot problems.

I recently had my 2000 sable trans gasket and front trans seal...i started my car and backed out of driveway and noticed a huge puddle of red fliud pooling out..i shut my engine off and it stil pooled out...


Anything transmission related, a line, a gasket, a seal, if its coming out right where the motor and transmission come together it would be a front seal.sometimes they dont stay in place when replaced and need to be staked in.
