Question about 2000 Mercury Sable

1 Answer

My a/c fan does not turn off, even when I have the heat on in my 2000 mercury sable. I wasn't getting any heat so I replaced the thermostat and I only get very little heat and saw that the a/c fan kept running so I took out the fuse for the a/c and I am still getting very little heat???

The fan is sopposed to cycle on and off its to keep the car cool your problem ti your heater core is plugged up and very restrictive. just pull the hoses off of it on the fire wall and hook up a garden hose to one side by cutting the end off and clamping the hose to the heater core, then turn the water on untill clean water with good flow comes out of the other hose bung, then switch sides and run the water the same way then hook everything back up and top off your coolant leval and check to c if all is well

When i turn the heater on my 2000 mercury sable cold air comes out

Check the radiator coolant level. If full with proper 50/50 mixture most likely cause is the thermostat.

No heat or defrost in my 2000 mercury sable

If you are referring to the air won't blow through the defrost vents or on the floor, you may have a stuck or broken blend door actuator. This part diverts air through the different settings: defrost, vent, floor etc. If you aren't getting warm or hot air regardless of the settings, you may either be low on coolant or have a bad thermostat.

2000 Mercury Sable rough idle at start and any time foot is off the gas, was told to replace iacv but that made it run worse. Ran diagnostic gave me code P0174 and P0171. Was told to replace the MAP...

Rough idling can be caused be `ye olde vacuume leake'.HaHa!
So check for THAT first.I have also seen those cars eat a set of spark plugs and wiring pretty fast, so remove a coupla' plugs(they're easy to get to if engine's cold)and check their condition. (:^) don-ohio

My 2000 mercury sable is over heating after I've replaced my radiator water pump and thermostat after replacing both cooling sensors the fans stopped working

Open the radiator cap with the engine running at temp and look for tiny air bubbles. If you see bubbles you have a blown head gasket.

1994 mercury sable has no heat

Yes, your sable has a thermostat, and it sounds like it needs to be replaced. Are u sure the temp gauge is broken? It may be that the thermostat is stuck open, which won't allow the engine to warm up, which in turn would show low engine temp. and result in no heat. Even the gas fumes could possibly be a result of the car running inefficiently due to running below operating temperature. So, replace the thermostat, and u may solve all your problems.

Most likely the thermostat needs to be changed.

If you do replace it make sure that you get the seal as well. It will cost you about $25 to do it your self.

Hope all goes well:)
