Question about 2000 Mercury Sable
Idle real rough after work today. when i got home and took a look at it, I noticed that the manifold was glowing light red/orange. Any ideas on the problem is here?
The catalytic is toast......NOTE : your car can catch fire......Ive seen a car with a bad catalytic, glow & BURN. But sometimes, the boss" just wont listen. Be safe & stop driving it, til its replaced.

My 2000 Sable starts blowing hot air about every 6 months. I mean like an oven. All I do is disconnect the battery negative terminal for about 5 minutes. After I re-connect the problem is solved. This solves many problems on this car, it just needs a re-boot. It must be powered by Microsoft (ha ha). Good luck. ps my auto headlamps never did work right either. Dave.

There are many possibilities on this. Anything from bad Gas, Bad Ignition Wires, Bad Distributor/IgnitionCoil, Intake Air Leaks, Bad Sensors etc.
It sounds like a malfunctioning Idle Air Control Valve. You can take this off and clean it with Carb Cleaner. Reinstall and check operation. If it helps but does not solve completely the problem: Replace this.
Check your Ignition Wires and Distributor/Ignition Coil.
The Idle Control Valve is available at
(no-I don't work for either store/company)
Autozone Part #TV281 for around $51.
Advance Auto Part #50523 for around $52.
