    hey 662buffalo7... where would i even find the temp gauge in the radiator on my 2002 sable? i wouldnt even know were to look for that. if you are on about the temp gauge cooling censer that turns the fan on when the cooant gets to hot thats working and has been changed. the car will not over heat at all if its just sitting there. But as soon as i start driving the car it will just start rising up there. but if i put my A/C on 90 deg on full it brings the temp right down to half way.

Are you sure you got all the air out of the cooling system? Air pockets are very common problem when you do any work to the cooling system. An air pocket will do what you discribe.

2002 mercury sable, first ignition cranking but no start.


I would start with the fuel pump relay. The relay may not be working which would require the engine be cranked for a long time to get fuel pressure.
You could also have a problem with the venting of the gas tank.

2001 sable 24 valve duratec water pump belt routing


The water pump on the Duratec 30 on the 2001 Mercury Sable is driven by a separate belt on the driver's side of the engine. You can see the belt easily form the top of the engine compartment. The pump is driven by a belt from one of the overhead camshafts in the front bank of cylinders. The diagraom that is provided does not go to the water pump on the 24-valve 3.0 liter in the 2001 Sable.

Our mercury sable 1999 keeps overheating very hot changed threomstat help please it has 125000 miles changed altnater, water pump what else can it be


Hello,
I read your problem and what you have done to try and rectify the problem. Let me say this first. You did a great job of trying to fix this over heating problem. There is only a couple other things to check or have done to solve this overheating problem. Only other things it can be that cause it to over heat is Number one, make sure your temp sensor is operating proper, you can have this checked by any repair shop, they will check with a amp meter. And assuming you do not have a head gasket leaking, which would cause over heating, what i would do is have the radiator system flushed, and put under pressure. Reason for this, is a lot of times, radiator gets some what partially clog, this is due over time from not proper antifreeze and water ratio. Internal parts and coils of radiator become partially clogged as things break down inside. First thing, i would suggest if to have radiator flushed and then see if it flows correctly via the new thermostat you just put in, and of course the water pump is providing the proper flow of operation. If that does not work, have them check the coolant sensor, to make sure it is triggering correctly to allow the thermostat to operate normally. I hope this helps, Thank You, Mike

Where is the fuel pump in 2002 Mercury Sable


it is in the gas tank you have to drop the tank and it goes down in the top although i would locate the filter on the frame rail first and replace it its cheaper and i reccomend you replace it anyway with a pump change

Car is running hot occasionally and the serpentine


Well there's only part that has to do with the cooling system and serp belt - the water pump!! Maybe it's starting to seize or has too much play. Either way, when you change the water pump, replace the thermostat and flush the system very thoroughly, those 98-99's are notorious for rust build up. Make sure to pull the heater hoses off and flush the heater core too. After all said is done, purge the coolant and make sure there is heat from the blower. If not you're going to have to replace the heater core because that gets clogged sometimes when flushing.

Locate the flywheel, and just to the right of it is the water pump - (connected to the bottom radiator hose).
If you reply with engine size - i can give you procedure to change it.
