Question about 2001 Mercury Sable
When I start my car,it acts as if everything is normal,but then this loud,obnixous motorcycle or helicopter noise and the engine shakes. I tried to drive it to Auto Zone to check the engine but it dies. I dont believe its a battery issue because lights,phone charger and radio works..I have fluids(i know it needs more brake fluid but i dont think brake fluid would cause this issue)but I dont have a clue what it could be.
Try taking polybelt out sounds like something is worn or seized

Get it to an auto parts store and borrow their OBD reader. That's step #1.

SOURCE: break light and odd noise,
For problem #1 the sable has a sensor inside the cylinder(called fluid level indicator) to activate the brake light when the fluid level is low. in the 96 Sable, mercury had a recall for these cars regarding the brake light not functioning right
On problem 2, you did not specify if the noise came from the wheel area or directly under the car.

sounds like your brake/shift interlock solenoid is not releasing.
Your owner manual will tell you how to bypass in emergency.
Check your fuse first. fuse panel on instrument panel.
Please rate as fixed if this helps.
Fuse 23 - 1 5 amp
Fuse 34 - 7 1/2 amp
check enigne light not related.
The selector lever lock can be moved mechanically out of position ”P" when for example the battery is disconnected or completely discharged.
Using a ball point pen or similar item as an unlocking lever, push forward and hold in position.
Move the selector lever out of position "P".
NOTE: If the selector lever is moved back to ”P" it is re-locked.
