Check your vacuum hoses (They are 3/8" Rubber hosing on the right side of the engine, you will need to remove the air intake piping (Also remove the throttle body to make accessing them easier) This is the #1 cause of high idling in the 3.0 OHV and 3.0 DOHC sable engines.

When i travel between 60 - 70 mph the car idles and sounds like the engine is reving. then the car will jolt and go back to normal. also the rpm jumps from 2000-3000


Don't know the issue

But that is the transmission coming out of gear

Not a good thing

I wouldn't drive it until a trans shop checked it out

Could be just torque converter lock-up (TCC)
solenoid

1989 Mercury Sable GS 3.0L runs rough and idles down and stalls


Sounds like you might have a stuck open EGR valve. Is the check engine light on. I would replace the fuel filter if it hasn't been replaced, also check the air filter.

Service light has come on. Engine idles at 3000 RPM at one time then at 500 RPM at another. When at 500 RPM sounds like it is missing and sometimes stalls.
