SOURCE: 98 mercury sable starts and

got me racking my one ameoba brain cell this one,and i cant think of anything that i have had like this sort of problem,except once with an old petrol commer truck many years ago,and the problem here was the inlet maniifold was loose.Now as this is obviously an auto then when the engine "kicks " as its dropped into gear then something is causing it to cut out .Now i suggest you check manifold nuts are tight first.Then check all the wiring connectors onto the sensors on the engine ,pulling the rubber covers back and checking the wires are connected and none broken or and undue bending that could have broken the copper inside the insulation.Then check the actual connectors themselves ,ensuring they are not broken or burnt.If you cant find anything then call out your local mobile mechanic as he will no doubt have a plug in tester and when engine cuts out it should show a fault??But if it is one of these sensors then iam at a loose end as to what one would cause this sort of fault because when i was at college we were still taught how to white metal and scrape the big end and crank bearings.Not to walk around with white coats and plastic pervert gloves and all looking like bill gates type nerds who can only talk about gigas and OBDII also wouldnt dream of changing a clutch on a big truck on the side of the road with only a trolley jack and a couple of pieces of 4x4 and a chain.Let alone sort out the truck driver and give him a right hander for burning the clutch out in the first place.

SOURCE: 2007 mercury milan V6 Car wont start. Jumped it

Remove the lugs at the battery. Clean the posts and the lugs - then reconnect. Your battery won't charge (and the jumpers won't work) largely because of a film on the + post and lug. If you live in a hot summer area, (Arizona) the problem is especially troublesome.

SOURCE: Why does my fuel pump stay running on my 1994

Look for an EEC relay and that may be the problem. Contacts may be welded on pump side... it also sends power to ignition with other contact that may be bad or won't close

Mercury sable 1999 while driving stopped at light engine shut down an will just turn over not restart


The first thing you must do is check for fuel delivery, you may have run out of gas even if the gage says there is fuel in it.

2001 Mercury Sable Intermittent Fuel Pump?


You are right that it could be either component, or something else electrical. The security system will kill the fuel system if the wrong key is used or the system is acting up.
A mechanic would check base fuel pressure with a gauge and also see if the pump is getting power from the relay when it fails to start.

My 97 mercury sable 3.0 is very hard to start once started runs really rough for a second then smooths out


My first guess would be a dirty throttle body or a faulty idle air control valve.
Also one of the injectors could be leaking fuel into the cylinder when you stop the engine.
Is the check engine light on when the engine is running ?

Hi i have a 1996 mercury sable wagon and it was running fine, I went to start it the other day and it wouldnt start, I checked the fuel pump shut off switch and its pushed down it dont click up or down or...


There is nothing wrong with the Inertia Fuel Shut Off Switch

It is down & closed, as it should be & you haven't been in an accident,forget it

What are you missing?

Fuel,Spark, MAF

Have to start testing, if the starter turns the engine over

Try to use some fuel injector cleaner. You can find tis at any automotive store. Also change your fuel filter.
