SOURCE: 95 Mercury Sable oil headache

1999Mercury Sable died...acts like battery dead or alternator, however with key off there is a click, click sound and as soon as you giggle ignition and make sound stop ...there is power but as soon as you turn key on it all goes dead again.. battery takes a charge and don't think its an alternator problem.. think it is a relay switch...possibly the windshield wipers.. have noticed that the wipers turned on for no reason a couple of times and once again when I was messing with this situation

Removal Procedure

Important: The original oil pan gasket is retained and aligned to the oil pan by rivets. When installing a new gasket, it is not necessary to install new rivets.
DO NOT reuse the oil pan gasket. When installing the oil pan, install a NEW oil pan gasket.

Caution: Refer to Battery Disconnect Caution in Service Precautions.

  • Disconnect the negative battery cable. Refer to Battery Negative Cable Disconnect/Connect Procedure
  • Remove the front differential if equipped with four wheel drive. Refer to Differential Carrier Assembly Replacement in Front Axle.
  • Remove the under body shield from the vehicle
  • Remove the oil pan underbody shield.
  • Remove the cross brace if equipped.
  • Drain the engine oil and remove the engine oil filter. Refer to Engine Oil and Oil Filter Change
  • Remove the lower transmission-to-oil pan bolts
  • Disconnect the oil level sensor electrical connector.
  • Remove two front wiring harness retainer bolts.


10. Remove the engine wiring harness retainer bolts from the engine oil pan.
11. Remove the engine oil cooler pipe to oil pan bolt.
12. Remove the transmission oil cooler pipe retainer and the bolt from the oil pan.
13. Remove the starter motor. Refer to Starter Motor Replacement.
14. Remove the left closeout cover and bolt.
15. Remove the engine oil pan. Refer to Oil Pan Removal.

Installation Procedure

Important: The alignment of the structural oil pan is critical. The rear bolt hole locations of the oil pan provide mounting points for the transmission bellhousing. To ensure the rigidity of the powertrain and correct transmission alignment, it is important that the rear of the block and the rear of the oil pan must NEVER protrude beyond the engine block and transmission bellhousing plane.

It shouldn't be hard on that car as the oil pan is exposed. Unplug the oil plug and drain the oil. Then unbolt the oil pan, clean off the old gasket and replace. Make sure you scrape both the pan and the block clean thoroughly and then bolt back up. Don't forgot to replug the drain plug.

How to replace a oil pan gasket 2003 mercury sable


1st. Can you remove the oil pan without partially removing the engine? If - YOU CAN'T - take it to a local ASE Professional. Concerns: 1 - rear main seal, will it be damaged when you remove the oil pan. 2. Front oil seal, pan seal, same concern? Lets assume you can remove the oil pan, ok, ... you MUST get the TWO gasket surfaces clean, smooth, I mean REAL CLEAN. SIT THE oil pan with the gasket surface up and flat, ..CLEAN THE GASKET SURFACES AND EVERY BOLT with QUICK EVAPORATING brake cleaner or acetone. Let then dry. Get some Permatex spray "red" gasket glue/sealer. Spray the pan side of the gasket with the red glue, carefully lay the gasket on the pan, use the bolts to locate the gasket, make sure the gasket is seated against the pan 100% around the edges!!!! Let the gasket dry overnight!! Then spray the face of the gasket with the red sealant before installing, do it while its still tacky. tighten all bolts finger tight, then start a criss cross pattern, start slowly tightening them (WITH A QUALITY TORQUE WRENCH) TO 50% OF RECOMMENDED.VALUE, keeping the criss cross pattern to 75%, then to 100 - 110% of FACTORY SPECIFICATION. This should stop all gasket caused leaks!!

2001 sable oil pan


Sounds like he is just going to reseal the pan it is very labor intensive and the price id about right as the exhaust has to be dropped down to access the pan and bolts plus the clean up of the mating services if you get it done demand he install the FELPO OS30717R they fixed the problem with the oem gaskets it cost a little more but well worth the money and no future headaches

If it is in fact the oil pan gasket that is leaking, then you would first need to drain out the oil through the oil drain plug and recycle the oil. Then you can remove the oil pan and replace the old gasket with a new one, refill with the proper amount of oil. Then you can run the car and see if it still leaks.

first drain the oil then u need to remove the bolts that fastened the oil pan to the crankcase using a sockrt wrench / clean it with gasoline/ dry it/ put a new gasket or gasket sealant would do tighten it evenly and fill the engine with fresh oil.

let sit 2 minutes and check again.the filter uses about 300ml,so top up til full and your'e done.
