Question about 2000 Mercury Sable

1 Answer

Hi, my wife drives a 2000 merc. sable wagon 3.0 l dohc last week she leaked major trans. fluid, a puddle and a line of fluid for about 16ft. she parked it. I filled the trans 4 to 5 hrs later with new fluid car ran fine with only a small spot on the driveway. was wondering if certain tranny lines, seals etc. can overheat from long drives and be fine on short neighborhood drives? Thanks

When my sable gets in hot wheater and drives for a distanse it will blow the tranny fluid all out. if i let it coll down and refill it it drives fine. whats wrong ? Its a 1999 DOHC motor sable.

You need to have the fluid changed and replaced with fresh fluid. The reason it is currently boiling the fluid and causing it to spill out is because of the drop in viscosity of the current fluid and is unable to perform its duties. I would take it to a local AAMCO transmission shop, they have always done good work for me.

A circle with a explanation point on the inside start blinking then the next day it start leaking transmission fluid real bad

you have a blown front seal in the tranny refill with fluid and drive a short distance and monitor the light and check under car for puddle if no puddle and no light then i would service the tranny (replace filter fluid and gasket cheap fix ) if still leaking and light still on you can have it repaired or replaced

Transmission went out this morning due toexcessive leak.

Always check trans fluid with engine running.But its ok to fill to see if you can drive home if vehs trans is slipping you might think about getting it towed. You always have the chance of causing more damage. If you mean by (went out) that its just leaking and is just low on fluid. Yes you can fill and drive but dont let the fluid level get below min. mark on check stick. DRIVE SAFE TIM

Red fluid leak. Large puddle formed overnight.

It could be a leaking trans pan, output shaft seal,or bad rack & pinion.

Hello, I bought 1997 merc sable wagon with 125000

Rebuilding the transmission. That's quite a few miles on your transmission and the seals are finally letting go.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad (and expensive) news,

My 2000 Pontiac Sunfire 2.2 5 speed wont move ahead.

you may have pulled the lines from the slave cylinder a tiny bit and 1 may have cracked i'd check the lines to your slave cylinder first for leaks, 2 plastic lines going inside the transmission on the drivers side near the front of the trans..
