Question about 2001 Mercury Sable
2001 Mercury Cougar .When I cranked it this morning it felt like it was goimg to choke off.I drove it about a mile and the check engine light started flashing on and off so I brought it home disconnected battery cabled and reset computer.The light went away but the car is still running very ruff and if you place your hand over the exhaust pipe you van fill it misfireing.It also cut off by itself one time.But it always cranks right back up no problem.
You need to have it check immediately if the CEL was Flashing.This means that your engine is experiencing a serious missfire and damage to the catalytic convertors can occur if you continue to drive it. If it was on steady then it means PCM has detected a concern and you should have it check but will not cause damage.
