You will have to get the transmission flushed with new gasket and filter...if that doesnt work you will have to get it overhauled.

Several oil brands have "high milage" oil for vehicles with high miles. I would go with a 10W/30 oil.

Not working


Check the bulbs to see if they're good (rare that both bulbs go at same time). If they're good, check to see if there's power to your sockets.
Under your car on the side of your transmission will be your reverse switch. It will have several wires coming out of it. Most likely the switch has died.

Hello, I bought 1997 merc sable wagon with 125000


Rebuilding the transmission. That's quite a few miles on your transmission and the seals are finally letting go.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad (and expensive) news,

2003 Mercury Sable - transmission jerking


This is a front wheel drive vehicle and has no power-train components in the rear of the car. The noise coming from the back is not related to your transmission. I would highly reccommend going to a ford dealership as these are typically trust-worthy and always use OEM parts. I also have an 03 sable with 101k miles it has always been reliable and has original transmission. It is possible something else is hard ****.

Powersteering, radio, windows won't work


Hello and thanks for using FixYa!, the problem with your sable is that the transmission range sensor needs to be replaced, back in 1996 and 1997, the circuitry internal to the sensor caused an interference with several other systems in the car, including the radio, power steering and power windows. Have the sensor replaced and it will need to be adjusted, so it is best done by a ford dealer who would have the proper alignment tool.
