Question about 2001 Ford Taurus

Open Question

I have a 2002 mercury sable and have had no problems till lately. The car will start and set and run. misses when the air con is on and when pressing on the gas to go up a small incline. Sometimes the check engine light will come on. Some times the open door or trunk light will come on and stay on. Some times the inside lights will come on and stay on then run the battery down. When the car sets in the sun the alarm will go off. Does anyone know what is going on.

What makes my 2002 Merc Sable have three little short pauses like misses when it shifts from 1st to 2nd gear.


Sounds like a coil breaking down. Try this for a test, get going to around 45 mph and lightly accelerate, is the is miss is reproduced then the most likely cause is the secondary ignition system. I.E plugs or wires or a coil.

2002 Mercury sable misfiring only on cylinder 3


Can't believe some the lame answers here. Anyone having this issue check the PCV hose where it attaches too the air intake, the rubber breaks down and develops a leak. But these engines also have wiring issues that causes crankshaft sensor to fail at startup or under 1000 rpms causing the computer to shoot a code and trigger the engine light. I have these issue cause the above problem.

The blend door that regulates the airflow over the heater core may be stuck in the AC position. It is inside the case and is most difficult to get to. There may be a YouTube video that may help you locate it and test it.
