Question about 2001 Mercury Sable
Mercury had a recall on 3.0 duratech motors in 2000 and 2001. If you get a fuel smell at startup then you might have a bad lower intake gasket, it could cause a miss if seal is cracked. Article No. 01-4-3 you can get it on AllData.
Also, check the PC rubber L piece that runs from the PVC valve to under the throttle control - it could be busted.
Make sure ignition wires are not cracked. If you haven't tuned it up in over 30-40K consider doing that.
