2003 Mercury Sable AX4N Transmission Problems

My was is motion when I lost acceleration, and my car started to coast. The car will not engage into any gear, yet I can move my shifter flawlessly as if nothing even took place. I have checked the fluid levels, and it is not bunt, nor has the smell of being burnt, yet it stays at a rather high level on the dipstick, as if it were still hot, yet the car has been sitting for 3 days now. That may be due it still being in gear possibly, but I'm not for sure. Any amount of help in this situation would be great, considering that this vehicle is my only means of transportation. Thanks!

I have a 2003 Mercury Sable as well - my transmission went out with only 52,000 miles. I checked with Ford company and they do not have any recalls on the transmission, however I think it odd that you had the same problem with the same model with in the past 6 months.

Two transmissions in my 2003 sable in 2 years. This is getting old. Anyone know if there is any recourse against ford for this? Can I get reimbursed? It's obviously a design flaw.

have you inspected the cables or the linkage. if your linkage is worn or out of adjustment the truck might not start in the right gear p or n. and you would have to wiggle the shifter to get the right gear.

Why wont my cadiilac 2002 sts move in any gear?


I hate to be the bearer of bad news but sounds like your transmission has gone out. But shifting to park and no motion is an acceptable behavior:)
One other possibility is the linkage to the transmission has broken and you are not actually shifting gears when moving the shifter.

Are there torque specs for the transmission pan on a 1993 mercury cougar 3.8 v6


I'm sure that there are torque specs. for this. I just did both pans on my 1999 Mercury Sable with a 3.0 Duratec V6 DOHC with the AX4N transmission and both pans on that are tightened to 7-9 ft.-lbs.
I don't know if this would be the same unless it has an AX4N transmission. I hope this helps.
Good Luck!!!
