I suppose you mean that there is oil on the floor where it is parked. It's the same as a Ford Taurus, and I suppose you have a 3.3 engine. Lack of oil in the transmission means that it won't go anywhere. If you fill the transmission with fluid, it will leak out again, but you might be able to drive the car - hopefully to transmission shop to fix it. If the car will not drive with fluid added, then it will have to be taken for repairs. What I do when I have a car that won't drive (and has driven to where it's parked) is to add 2 quarts of transmission fluid and then see if it will move. Normally this works & I can move it into my garage for work. Sometimes it takes 3 or so, but thats usually for full size or pickup transmissions. Rick

Should be okay if you use a tow dolly. This means you drive the front wheels up on the tow dolly and strap the tires down. The rear wheels are like trailer tires and should roll as if they do when driven.

I have a whining noise coming from my 1999 Mercury Sable. Starts at about 20 MPH and increases getting the loudest around 40-60 mph then holds steady, have shifted to nuetral and whining stays. I believe...


Could be anything connected with the front wheels.
So that includes hub-wheel bearings, axle joints, the differential gears, and the transmission.

Automatic transmission fluid leak.


check for a problem oil line to the oil cooler in the radiator or loose connections at the transmission
the oil is probably running back from a different position to where the spot on the floor occurs

AC water leaks inside car, 2002 mercury sable


You probably have two different issues here.
The water on the floor is usually caused by a drain tube being stopped up. The tube is supposed to let the water drain out of the car and onto the ground. It should be on the bottom of the firewall or below the floor.
You would need to have the computer scanned for trouble codes to find out why the check engine light is coming on.

2002 mercury sable wont go into gear. shifter moves, linkage moves. transmission wont engage and or get out of park


ok sounds like the transmission might be your problem
first you would need to change the transmission filer by pulling the transmission plate and draining and replace filter and fluids new fluids prefferably. if that doesnt fix it. you could have a sensor or computer part out only real way to know is to take to shop to get looked at. hope this helps good luck
