Question about 2002 Mercury Sable
Something at in the front of the engine towards the bottoms keeps smoking i do not know what it is can u help? also the door open sign keeps coming on and the light's inside the car keeps coming on?
If it's Black smoke thermostat likely it's some type of rubber. If you look see if there is liquid near where the smoke is, after it heats up lift the hood and look to see where the smoke is coming from if it's oil then you have a oil leak, I need to know what it smells like does it smell like motor oil or does it smell like rubber let me know and I will help you narrow it down, the inside light is coming on, do you have the light switch for dimming the dash lights turned all the way up? try turning on the lights and then dim it low the dash lights, then close the door if the light goes out that was your problem if not look on the door for a button where the door opens and pull the little kick panel off it has a couple of screws on it and once you remove it unplug the two wires and tape them up,the light should go out, if it does replace the panel and screws if it stays on do the same on the other side if you unplug the wires on that side and the light still stays on then your headlight switch will need to be changed is it a two or four door? if there are four doors any one of the switches could be bad and you would have to follow the procedures above till you find the one that is stuck on you can push the button in and if it springs back that means it's most likely ok so check them all before pulling the panel to remove the wires. Hope this helps. if one does not spring back thats the bad switch and they are cheep to replace. Get back to me if you need more help.

The smoke could be anything from burning oil to any other lubricant from the engine, just a small leak can cause an abundance of smoke, most commonly oil, the problem with the door ajar lamp is that you have probably lost the switch that mounts in the door jam, that is probably a dealership item you can buy it from them, simple repair.
