Question about 1992 Mercury Sable

1 Answer

Our 1992 Mercury Sable after warming up it shuts right down. We have replaced the fuel pump and filter along with the control module and the coil is fine. We also replaced the distributor gear shaft. What could be wrong with our car??

It would appear that you've got a major vacuum leak. Listen under the hood for a loud hissing sound. Also have someone else shut down the engine while you listen, this will allow you to hear any major leak for the vacuum lasts about 2-3 seconds while the engine is slowing to a stop.Happy hunting!

Look at the fuel pump as your problem. When you first get into car listen for pump. Have someone put their next to the fill cap and have them listen for a hum. If no hum bad fuel pump.

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.
