My 97 mercury sable 3.0 is very hard to start once started runs really rough for a second then smooths out


My first guess would be a dirty throttle body or a faulty idle air control valve.
Also one of the injectors could be leaking fuel into the cylinder when you stop the engine.
Is the check engine light on when the engine is running ?

Check engine light is flashing while driving. It seems to be running a little rough. This just happened this morning when I started the car.


The check engine lamp will flash when the computer/emission system sees a problem that could possibly damage the catalytic converter or other components. Often the cause is a cylinder or cylinders that are misfiring which will make the engine run rough. Because the light has been flashing you should have the problem checked out and repaired to avoid any possible damage. Good luck, hope this helps!

1989 Mercury Sable GS 3.0L runs rough and idles down and stalls


Sounds like you might have a stuck open EGR valve. Is the check engine light on. I would replace the fuel filter if it hasn't been replaced, also check the air filter.

Idles rough when first starting in morning. plugs replaced, new throttle body, two new ignition coils. After a few minutes rough idle goes away. Sometimes causes check engine light to go on. Not consistent...


Sounds like you might have a bad engine coolant temperature sensor. I would have the codes retrieved from the computer to see what sensor/s it is seeing a problem with.

Rough idle


Mercury had a recall on 3.0 duratech motors in 2000 and 2001. If you get a fuel smell at startup then you might have a bad lower intake gasket, it could cause a miss if seal is cracked. Article No. 01-4-3 you can get it on AllData.

Also, check the PC rubber L piece that runs from the PVC valve to under the throttle control - it could be busted.

Make sure ignition wires are not cracked. If you haven't tuned it up in over 30-40K consider doing that.

Missfire


Locate you computer (right front kick panel) and tap on it with a pen while the car idles... Also flex it back and forth with your hands to see if the car runs rough or quits... You may need a new one.
