2003 sable how to adjust transmission kick down cable


What do you mean by the kick down cable? Are you having trouble with the transmission during shifting? If that is the case, you may be having trouble with the clutch. The gears might be having trouble transitioning.

1997 mercury sable won't shift into overdrive. We think we may need to replace the transmission. If so, what vehicle transmissions will work in a sable?


first of all, check the kickdown cable to transmission. it may be out of adjustment. or just bad.if its the cable out of adjustment, it is sure cheaper then a tranny.

1997 Mercury Sable --Neutral Safety Switch ????


I also have a 1997 Mercury Sable, and had this exact same problem. And you're right, it is the neutral safety switch. If you do some research you'll see that Ford Motors seemed to slack when it came to these engine models, because the 1997 model of Ford Taurus has the same problem too. It's not a hard fix, it's located right on the transmission. You need to find out if it is an 8 or 11 pin switch, because the price varies. Just go to your local AutoZone and ask for some assistance. If you take it to a mechanic, they're going to keep trying different things and charge you a boat load of money. I hope I was helpful. :)

NEUTRAL SAFETY SWITCH ??????


It's not hard at all to replace. It's located on your transmission, if you're some what mechanically inclined than that's a wonderful start. Look up a blueprint of the engine and locate it directly. A new one is around $40 or $80 depending on whether it's an 8 pin or an 11 pin. Good luck!

MERCURY SABLE - NO PROBLEM WITH TRANS. YESTERDAY STARTUP THIS MORNING WONT GO IN ANY GEAR SEEMS LIKE IN IN NEUTRAL. BOLT SEEMS LIKE IN PLACE HOLDING LINKAGE


Either your hydraulic clutch in your transmission has failed or your shifting linkage has disconnected or failed. Hydraulic clutch replacement is common for Ford products, especially in 2003.

Transmission Range Sensor and Neutral Safety Switch are the same thing. As for the other question, I'm not sure what you're asking.
