Fuel pump bad or fuel pump relay bad. Likely fuel pump.

Spray some starting fluid in air intake and see if it starts. If yes, replace fuel pump in fuel tank. drop tank for access. About a $250 repair at shop. call around.

Describe your 1999 Mercury Sable1999 Mercury Sable station wagon will occasionally not start after running it for a while. Seems to happen more when the weather is warm. Starter seems fine, just feels like...


next time this happens, listn vry caefully at the fuel tank while you or someone turns the key to "ON". Listn or the fuel pump to run for 5 seconds and shut off. If it does not do this, your fuel pump is not activating.
I suspect the fuel pump is going bad, if you bang on tank bottom, it may start up again. Th pump is sticking due to contamination or the armature is stopping at a bad spot.
