How to remove a power steering pressure hose on a 1999 Mercury Sable


You have to discon the battery cable before you start. Remove the coolant expansion tank. Remove the drivebelt and alternator if you have an OHV V6. Raise the vehicle on jack stands. Place a drain pan below the pump. From below, remove the splash shield and discon any brackets or ties that hold the hose to the body. After draining, you may have to replace the pwr steering fluid filter, located in the fluid line, then replace the fluid. A crows-foot wrench may be necessary to remove some hose fittings. This is a job for a mechanic with a power lift to be honest. Whatever you do, be careful not to contaminate the power steering fluid. Bleed the system after replacing the hose. The pressure hose is held in place by threads and not a clamp as the other hose has. Get yourself the Haynes repair manual 36075 '96 thru 2005 Ford Taurus & Merc Sable. It has a detailed step by step description of this procedure. Good Luck

1996 mercury sable speed hand and drives in strain and ****


I hace a 19196 sable-the problem is the transaxle speed sensor-this part sends all speed info to the computer ..-First symptom(speedometer stops working and then transmission shifts erratacially and power steering becomes hard and engine light comes on..The computer on this all eletronic car cannot send proper signals to the speedo-trans-power steering and other functions without knowing how fast or slow the car is going..Have the SPEED SENSOR mounted on top of the tranaxle replaced and all will be well.Part is not to expensive.labor can vary depending whether you have 3.0OHV or DOHC engine-some cars have to have exhaust dropped to get at it-Good Luck All
