I've a 1999 mercury stable 3.0 double over head cam it got hot and cut off when cooled off chanked it up and blowing white smoke it don't seemingly to have water in the oil does that mean I have a cracked...

If your engine has overheated then more than likely you have a blown head gasket.
1. have compression checked for each cylinder.
if a cylinder shows low compression 20 lbs less than the others then you have a gasket/head job needing repaired.
2. if there is water in the oil. your engine has a blown head gasket.

aluminum heads will need to be checked at a machine shop for warpped head...and all head bolts will need replaced.

My front passenger brake is sticking on a 1999 mercury sable

replace the brake hose as they can collapse inside causing the fluid to be trapped and not allowing it to travel back to the master cylinder causing a line lock effect.

How do you get the capierer pin off to put front brake pads on my Mercury Sable LS?

Section 06-03: Brakes, Front Disc 1999 Taurus, Sable Workshop Manual REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION Brake Shoe and Lining Removal
  1. Remove brake master cylinder filler cap (2162). Check fluid level in brake master cylinder reservoir (2K478) . Remove brake fluid until brake master cylinder reservoir is half full. Discard removed fluid.
  1. Raise vehicle on hoist.
  1. Remove wheel and tire assembly from front disc brake rotor mounting face. Use care to avoid damage or interference with disc brake caliper (2B120) , front disc brake rotor shield (2K004) or front wheel knuckle (3K185) .
  1. Remove rear brake pin retainers (2N386).
  1. NOTE: It is not necessary to disconnect hydraulic connections.

    Lift disc brake caliper from front disc brake caliper anchor plate (2B292) and front disc brake rotor (1125) . Do not pry directly against metal caliper piston or damage will occur.

The rear brake backup mechanism fell off. the spring, the part that you have to back off sometimes to remove the wheel and a sort of t shaped piece. I can't see how to replace them. I could use a diagram.

Rear brakes on Sables are more complicated then front brakes. If the rear brake unit has the parking brake attached to the side with a circular spring, then the rear brakes cannot be pressed back into place like the front ones. There is a brake tool needed to rotate the cylinder back into place. You will have to buy the tool to do this job.You can get this tool at autozone service center.--------- keep updated. Thanks.

1999 mercury sable had a recent head gasket replaced now heater only blows cold air.

Take it back. They either left a vacuum line disconnected or accidentally dislodged one.

Have a Mercury sable with little brake pressure. Just got done putting in the second master cylinder. They were rebuilt ones.I had also bench bled them.Wondering if there is some thing I'm missing.

if yo u just replaced the master you need to bleed all wheels starting from the r/rear l/rear r/front l/front , do it 2-3 times and make sure the master cylinder is full at all times

I have no pressure in my brake lines. I had changed the master cylinder and still no change when bleeding the lines.I also put new wheel cylinders on. I have a 1999 mercury sable

Make sure youre bleeding the lines correctly. Also you may have purchased a faulty master cylinder, trust me on that i bought two back to back and they were bad batch. check for cracked lines throughout the system.

1999 Mercury Sable cooling system

does it blow out white smoke?  If so it might be a head gasket issue.  I know mercury sables were infamous for head gaskets.
