Well anything is possible, but I would expect the transmission to work given the time and mileage.
Is there any way you could drive it a short distance before spending much money ?
I am assuming you are having the fuel tank drained and the cooling system flushed among other things.
I would change the fluids and try to drive it a few blocks before spending money on much else to see what it will need.

Transmission problems are an issue with Sables. If you Google transmission and Mercury Sable you will come to quite a few complaints. There are actually a few posts on this website where folks are having issue too. Personally a cheap o-ring in my 1999 Sable went out resulting in a $1800 transmission repair bill. I literally gave the car away about three years ago. In almost 20 years of owning vehicles the two years I had the Sable was the most expensive and busiest in the way of repairs.

SOURCE: 2003 Mercury Sable - transmission jerking

This is a front wheel drive vehicle and has no power-train components in the rear of the car. The noise coming from the back is not related to your transmission. I would highly reccommend going to a ford dealership as these are typically trust-worthy and always use OEM parts. I also have an 03 sable with 101k miles it has always been reliable and has original transmission. It is possible something else is hard ****.

If the transmission is over full this will happen, if the transmission overheats this will happen, check the level carefully by the instructions on the dipstick to ensure that it is filled properly. There is also a vent on the top of the transmission, a favorite home place for dirt wasps, make sure it is clean. If you think this problem is over heating, check the oil cooler for obstructions pinched lines etc., I put an external oil cooler on my transmission to provide more cooling capacity, though it is not truely neccessary. Hope this helps, let me know.
