Question about 1997 Mercury Sable
How hard is it to get at the transmission pan to change the gasket on a 1997 Mercury Sable Wagon?
Not too hard at all, even easier if you have it up on a lift. But if I remember right the pan is easy to get to without having to remove anything else. It is a good idea to go ahead and replace the filter while you are there. Make sure you get the rubber seal out of the valve body when you remove the old filter.

You have to use and engine support bar that hooks across the top of the strut towers like this
Then you remove the sub frame under car and remove tranny thru the bottom.

Q: Are you wearing your seat belt? Yes? No?
Solution: Put on your seat belt!!!!!! Save a life!!!
Soultion: There has to be a fuse either under the dash or under the hood that controlls the chime.
There is a switch in the seatbelt connecter that controlls the chime. It has either failed or the wireing that carried the signal to shut the chime off has been damaged.

Of course you can, in any vehicule either automatic or manual, you can replace the transmission oil easily. The only thing to be sure is to have a new filter and gasket ready to replace the old ones if you have an automatic, and with a manual you usually just drain it and fill it back up since there is usually no filter or pan. And in any case, you need to know just how much oil has to go in it too so that you don't over fill and cause damage, or underfill and also cause damage. If you have no idea how much oil you need, just call up your local dealer, garage or parts store and by telling them what year and model car you have, they will be able to tell you just how much oil you need. Be sure to ask them also what TYPE of oil you need, as it's not the same oil in manual or automatic, and also even in an automatic, most fords need a special type oil, and there are also a few other models like some mitsubishis and BMW and Mercedes and the like which also sometimes need special oils.

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.
