Is the check engine light on and flashing? Have you checked to see if fuel pressure holds? Is the fuel pressure regulator leaking? Can you hear any vacuum leaks?

My 2000 Sable starts blowing hot air about every 6 months. I mean like an oven. All I do is disconnect the battery negative terminal for about 5 minutes. After I re-connect the problem is solved. This solves many problems on this car, it just needs a re-boot. It must be powered by Microsoft (ha ha). Good luck. ps my auto headlamps never did work right either. Dave.

SOURCE: power steering leak on passengers side of 1999 mercury sable.

If it "RED" in color, like p/s fluid, and coming from the BOOT, then its your p/s rack assembly.The unit has to be replaced and alignment reset. ..also check the HOSES they are prone to leak also...hope this helped..GL

Oil smells like gas

sometime you will get this smell if you go a little over your oil change time of every 3000 miles also check when you replace the PVC valve normally in top of the valve cover gasket cause this will cut back on the ventilation that is needed to go through your engine if you take it off and it rattles it is still good but if it has been a while since you changed it it would be a good idea to change it also
