Question about 2003 Mercury Sable
The car was squeaking when I pushed on the gas, now it won't start but the batteryis ok. What could it be?
If the car was sqeaking it could have been your alternator belt, The sqeaking sound is the belt slipping, it is loose because there is not enough belt tension on the pulley. If it was slipping your alternator was not charging properly that's why your battery is low or dead.
Have the belt tightened or replaced (depending on condition) and drive your car around for about a half hour at normal speeds to recharge the battery.
