You have to actually test for fuel pressure with
a gauge at the fuel rail & use professional tools
to look at fuel trim, under certain conditions, to say
fuel seems lean.

Only proper testing will help you solve things

SOURCE: Where is the fuel filter located on an 01 Mercury sable ls

Part of the fuel pump assembly and a bit of a pain. You have to drop your gas tank.

SOURCE: where is the fuel pump in 2002 Mercury Sable

it is in the gas tank you have to drop the tank and it goes down in the top although i would locate the filter on the frame rail first and replace it its cheaper and i reccomend you replace it anyway with a pump change

2001 Mercury Sable: code for System Lean to Bank 2= Car Idles too high. Possible causes?


sounds like a air leak ,, bank 2 sensor 2 ?? refers to after the catalytic converter ... could be a faulty sensor but more likely an air leak .... even a faulty fuel tank cap seal is enough to cause problems on these systems

The code is for the upstream O2 sensor bank one stuck on lean.
Could be a faulty sensor, or low fuel pressure, or a vac leak.

My 1997 Mercury Sable stalls at stop lights


I had this problem recently. It ended up being the Fuel Pressure Regulator.
It is easy to check. It is in the front of the engine on the fuel rail. Pop off the vacuum line and see if there is gasoline present. If so, this means that the diaphram is bad and the regulator needs replacing. It worked for both my stalling, and hard to start when hot problems.

I got code 171 and 174 in my mercury sable 2001 so my question is what can i do or what can i buy i mean the piece de maf or my fuel filter?


P0171 fuel lean bank 1, P0 174 Fuel lean bank 2 More likely the MAF you can correct this by cleaning the MAF but you need to use brake cleaner and you ahve to remove it from its housing (it has anti tampering screws) a vacuum leak can also cause both banks to go lean and even low fuel pressure wheter it is a filter or pumpcansmo_53.gif

I have got a P0171 & P0174 engine codes on my 2001 mercury sable. What do I do to fix it.


P0171 System Too Lean Bank 1
P0172 System Too Rich Bank 1
P0173 Fuel Trim Bank 2
P0174 System Too Lean Bank 2

OK, that's a partial list of codes, the fuel delivery is controlled by the oxygen sensors, so it's possible that something in that area could be causing your problem.

However, it could also be clogged fuel injectors that can't deliver enough fuel to the cylinders compared to the air that is pulled into the engine.

Try some fuel injector cleaner for that poured into the gas tank.

How does it run?
Does it miss at all?

1989 Mercury Sable GS 3.0L runs rough and idles down and stalls


Sounds like you might have a stuck open EGR valve. Is the check engine light on. I would replace the fuel filter if it hasn't been replaced, also check the air filter.
