You see the vacuum hose solution by Shadow Gilbert? This still applies.......but usually if it's a vacuum leak,the engine will run a little rough.
Could be you need to remove the solenoid IAC in the aluminum duct that has the throttle control close by.
They actually make a special spray to clean this and the holes it works thru.
Also, you have what's called a MAF sensor,and these need the tiny wires inside gently brushed off and sprayed clean with electrical contact or what I use is brake cleaner spray.
Something that leaves NO residue.

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.

SOURCE: 1996 Mercury Sable Wagon Overheating

sometimes the radiator is just too plugged to respond to flushing. (happens a lot with a marginal radiator because when flushing, the solvent simply goes around the plugged area, and cannot build up enough force to break it free). From what you have written, this may be the case. Is the electric fan coming on and off at the right times? if not this also can give you similar problems. You have done the right things but may not have gotten the desired result. Hope this info helps you a bit.
good luck

That code is: Fuel Pump Primary Circuit Malfunction. Could it be the wires are not on tight or one is shorted? Check wiring very carefully.

SOURCE: 99 mercury sable automatic trans vehicle

Sounds like a broken or torn vacum hose, pcv valve clogged, or bad Idle air control motor. Did you spray carb cleaner on vacum hoses or near the plastic intake., and did the motor rev up or down? Those codes represent a lean condition which means most like a vacum leak or clogged idle air motor. Sometimes the intake manifolds crack or the intake manifold gaskets crack. FInd that vacum leak or inpect iac motor

High idle


Vacuum leaks or fuel pressure, or ECM.
When you press the accelerator you allow more air into the engine. The same extra air can get into the engine through leaks in the Vacuum system. Sometimes using a spray bottle of water and spraying the seams of the Intake manifold on a running engine can reveal the opening. Also spray any Vacuum lines and the Brake booster. A leak will change the RPM.
A high fuel pressure can cause an increase in RPM.
ECM- has a lot to due with timing and fuel demands.
Binding Linkage. Disconnect the throttle linkage and see if the RPM drops. If it does not, shut off the engine and work the Air horn Butterfly and check for smooth operation. It is possible that a mounting screw on the Butterfly shaft has slipped and the flap is binding or dirty.

I have a 2002 mercury sable it will stall out unless I put it in neutral and give it gas when stopped at a light or slowing below 1000 rpm. What could be the problem?


Idle air control could be stuck. If so clean it with some carb and choke cleaner. EGR could be stuck partly open. If so clean that or replace it.
