they may have done a relative compression test which is done electronically by measuring the RPM drop of each cylinder when the test is running, but not sure anyone but the dealer can do this test. This low compression you mentioned is not good, suggest u run the test yourself, the compression test guage kits are cheap u can buy them on line for about $25 US, also tank added chemicals don't do anything in the short term and noting if the injector is badly clogged, do u understand what I mean about a high pressure factory cleaning? it is quite a different animal.

These engines are know for leaking head gaskets. A good quick test for this is fill the coolant tank to the top with the cap off. Start the engine. If the the coolant blows out of the tank, you have a head gasket leak.

Where is the thermostat located


Under the hood find radiator at front of the car on either left or right side of radiator is a fat hose that will be connected to the radiator. Follow that hose to the engine and it connects to the thermostat cover that is connected to the top of the engine with two bolts holding it on. Remove both bolts, Remove thermostat cover replace with new thermostat, Scrap off old gasket on both connecting sides place in new gasket (using a gasket sealer with the gasket wouldn't hurt to) replace both bolts only SNUG tight if using sealer let sit for a hour or two. your done!!

Broken coolant line.


I'm not sure if you can buy just that piece, it's recomended that you replace the entire heater hose assembly.
For reference the NAPA p/n is BK 8155114 go to thier web site and verify this is the part you're needing to replace.
You should flush and replace the coolant if it old.
Hope this help you with your problem.

Where is the thermostat located


1. Follow the upper radiator hose from the radiator to the engine block and there you should see a neck where the hose is connected to the engine block.

2. Take the hose off by removing/loosening the clamp and pulling the hose off. Sometimes it's easier to use a screwdriver to pry the hose off. Be careful though not to damage the hose.

3. There should be 2 bolts on top off the housing. Take the bolts completely out and remove the housing from the engine block.

4. Remove the thermostat and gasket from the block and clean the location good with a wire brush. This ensures a good seal for the new gasket. Sometimes it helps to have a razor blade or other scraper to clean it with. Try not to score the metal when cleaning.

5. Installation is reversed. Some thermostats require a sealant to be used with the gasket, be sure to ask when you buy the thermostat.

6. Start vehicle and let it run for a little bit to check for leaks. If everything checks out, you are good to go.

Where is the drain plug on the radiator? 1997 Mercury Sable station wagon


as i recall, it is on the back of the radiator on the engine side at the bottom, probably under the lower radiator hose. it is a t fitting, probalby really tight, dont break it off. and be sure and have something to hold the coolant and not let it run in the gutter. critters drinking it, especially birds, die from it, and your neighbors get upset when you pollute

Where is the thermostat location on my 1997 mercury sable?


Follow the upper radiator hose to the engine to where it's held on with the hose clamp. The hose is clamped to the thermostat housing. Remove that housing to reveal the thermostat.

It's over heating i think it might be a leak in the radiator hose but it's leaking from the rear drivers side of the engine where 3 hoses come together what other problems do i need to worry about.


not seizing the motor up or blowing the head gasket have it looked at fast,,,, keep a close watch on the water in the motor, every time you drive it till its fixed and carry some water with you a bottle of rad weld may help in the short turm

This is no joke, I can,t fine where my thermostat is in my 1997 merc sable, ,i even followed the top hose back to the engine block


if you follow the "upper" radiator hose from the radiator to the engine it should have a metal piece that bolts to the car ( usually with only 2 bolts) and also the hose is clamped to it. it most likely has a domed shape to an elbow looking piece. take the "upper " radiator hose from where it connects to the engine. remove the bolts that hold this metal piece to the engine that you just took the hose off of. the thermostat "should" be located under this piece. you must take that metal elbow thing off from car to access the thermostat. where it bolts to the engine it most likely will have only 2 bolts and where that connects to the engine will be a gasket and it will be kinda football shaped. a lot of cars will also have a brass flat screw on top of this domed shaped elbow. that will be the give away to that that is where it is. what you do is when the car is running and the coolant starts to get warm, you back out the brass screw a little. this will let the air escape thats trapped and when coolant starts to escape tighten the screw back down. now you have the air out of the system after youve replaced the thermostat. I hope this helps....
