Question about 2001 Mercury Sable
Are you getting fuel pressure? You have an inertia switch in the trunk and it might need reset(push the red button down). It shuts off the electric fuel pump in case you have an accident or get bumped hard.Sometimes they just actuate for no known reason.
Also crankshaft position sensor could be dead. Have you run the engine codes? don-ohio (:^)
