SOURCE: mercury sable 2001 duratec engine DOHC I get check engine light and diagnostic code PO401". Any suggestions?

Barring any vacuum leaks, P0401 is indicative of a bad EGR valve. Hope this answers your question. Best of luck.

SOURCE: putting on timing belt .

The crank has got to be at TDC, with the marks lined up, the cams have to be lined up to their marks, then the belt will line up, If it doesn't line up, You will be walking home. If you have the old belt handy and the marks are still visible, compare them to the new belt, make sure they are the same. Pull the pin on the belt tensioner and you should be all set. Hope this helps.

If the car does not have a security system, I would check for voltage at the starter from the battery and from the key switch.
The power from the key switch goes thru the neutral safety switch before getting to the starter.

Probably the crank sensor, do you hear the fuel pump 'buzz' when you turn on the key (not cranking the engine, just key on)? If you do hear the fuel pump (only lasts about 2 seconds), it may be the ignition module, otherwise it is probably the crank sensor.

When shou the timing belt on this car (3.0 dohv V-6 engine) be replaced? Is the belt rubber or metallic?


At around 60,000 miles it should be changed. The belt is rubber. Remove the camshaft pulley covers. You will see what is known as a serpentine belt as it winds around the pulleys like a snake.

It is a fairly complex job as you need to keep the timing marks exactly where they are, which means jamming th e flywheel or the crank to stop it moving.

Steam coming from the tailpipe of my car after replacing radiator


Question? Does the coolant get low as you drive? If so you may have a head gasket problem, stop driving it. Check the oil to see if it's milky, if not replace the head gasket, if the oil is milky, replace the engine.
