    I'm not too familiar with the Sable however from what you're describing it sounds like :

    a) You can see the radiator cap but can't reach it?

    b) You'd like to check the level, color age etc. of the coolant?

    Many times the newer cars have little room to get at things so items must be removed in order to gain access. Sometimes it's plastic shrouds that look intimidating but in fact may take removing only a few screws to remove.

    Just make sure to save everything, maybe take a digital photo before you start so you can then see how it all goes back together.

    Good luck. Let me know if this has been helpful at all.

What type of coolant to use for a 2002 Mercury Sable.

It should say on the overflow bottle to use Dexcool only if it is Dexcool and if it does not say anywhere then it should be just the plain old green antifreeze. If it is Dexcool use only Dexcool do not mix any oyher type with it and remember to never open the radiator cap on a hot engine let it cool down first.

My 2000 mercury sable is over heating after I've replaced my radiator water pump and thermostat after replacing both cooling sensors the fans stopped working

Open the radiator cap with the engine running at temp and look for tiny air bubbles. If you see bubbles you have a blown head gasket.

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.

There is no radiator cap on this car, the radiator is a sealed unit with the over flow tank and the pressure cap and the cap for the overflow tank is one and the same, and is located on the passenger side of the engine compartment. and is rated at 16 psi. It is set up like this due to the fact that the overflow tank is the highest point in the cooling system.
