My 2001 mercury sable has new altinater,battery, and spark plug but won't fire up.What could be the problem?

Are you getting fuel pressure? You have an inertia switch in the trunk and it might need reset(push the red button down). It shuts off the electric fuel pump in case you have an accident or get bumped hard.Sometimes they just actuate for no known reason.
Also crankshaft position sensor could be dead. Have you run the engine codes? don-ohio (:^)

My altinater belt snapped, how do I replace it? Is this a dificult job to do on my own?

Not very difficult. Typically, it involves:

Loosening a locking nut on the tensioner for the belt. This allows the belt tensioner to be loosened to put a new belt on.

Finding the belt tensioner (some are automatic, spring loaded, others you loosen\tighten manually through a bolt) and loosening it so the belt fits loosely on the pulleys. If I were you, I would look at the pulleys without the belt and see if you can determine which is the tensioner.

Install new belt.

Tension it to spec. (Depends which vehicle you have.) If you have doubts, just tighten it so it doesn't flex more than an inch when pressed on the longest span.

Tighten locking nut.

Try running the car with the new belt. If you hear screeching, either loosen or tighten it until it goes away. Also make sure the electronics are all good, and that nothing is surging (as if losing power) since the alternator does charge your battery.

The battery of my hilux (2L engine LN65) is always weak although I have changed a new one. When the power of the battery is low I will have to push start in order for the vehicle to start. and the wiring...

try checking the altinater see if it is charging if you have a volt meter or a load tester to do so if not stop at an advance auto they will do it for free

I got a new battery, its been in it for a month or so. Now its dead and when I jump it off it starts then I turn the headlights and it dies and the battery is dead again.

In computer controled cars the computer needs at least 10 volts to operate . If your car is not charging or not carging enough The voltage is low to start with when you boost it. Then you turn on the lights it drops the voltage more to where the computer can't opperate. The batery should be charged before you start it anyway because it is really hard on the altinater to recharge a dead batery. An altinater is only meant to keep a batery topped up , its not a cahrger.

1996 Toyota Celica GT: car loses power and stalls out.

Check alternator voltage at back of alternator ( big wire ), if you have no less then 13.5 volt's, alternator is ok, check for blown alternator fuse or break at wire from back of alternator to starter then to battery, could be a bad fuse link at starter.

Battery Not Charging on 1990 Ford Aerostar

I would say to change the alternator again even if it's new from the parts store it really is a rebuilt one try a different one . If the car is dieing while it is driving more than likely the alternator especially if things like headlights , radio ,ect.. cut off first.
