Question about 1999 Mercury Sable
Changed the oil in a 1999 mercury Sable 3.0 v-6 and the oil smells like gas . i'm looking for causes and test to do to deterime what needs to be done to fix this problem
Sometime you will get this smell if you go a little over your oil change time of every 3000 miles also check when you replace the PVC valve normally in top of the valve cover gasket cause this will cut back on the ventilation that is needed to go through your engine if you take it off and it rattles it is still good but if it has been a while since you changed it it would be a good idea to change it also
