Question about 1997 Mercury Sable

1 Answer

19997 Sable GS. I slow down and make a turn, when i accelerate after completing the turn, the transmission slips before it downshifts. Then when it does downshift it hits real hard. Would a flush and a filter take care of this?

Slippage on turns almost always means you are low on fluid.

Flush and filter rarely helps, but is always worth a try.
Remember that only less than a third of the fluid is in the pan, and the rest is in the torque converter, and can not be drained.

Where is the passing gear on a 2003 Mitsubishi Diamante


'Passing gear' is a term that means the transmission is down-shifted to a lower gear (e.g., from 5th gear to 4th gear) for improved acceleration to pass another vehicle. There is no physical component called a passing gear in the transmission.
To engage the 'passing gear' with an automatic transmission should require nothing more than pressing the accelerator pedal down firmly. The transmission should downshift automatically to the next lower gear (sometimes it will downshift two gear ratios, depending on your speed and how far you depress the accelerator pedal).

Truck lost power and when you try to pass a car it slows down and chuggs


Stop trying to do what you are doing!!! Sounds like the transmission is slipping when attempting to downshift, and engine is over-revving!! Check the transmission fluid level and correct if needed. If fluid level is correct and fluid smells burned, suspect transmission has internal problem.

I have a 1995 mercury sable its an automatic. I need to know which D should i be driving in. The frist D or the Second D.


use the first D. this is overdrive. it gives you the best fuel economy. The second D downshifts the transmission into a lower gear. this would be used when climbing a steep hill (it keeps the transmission from hunting between gears) or descending an equally steep hill as it would help slow the car without using the brakes.
