Fuse location for a 2000 mercury sable

You should have 2 locations, and some circuits are found at both places, some only one.
Your owner's manual should tell you about both of them.
One should be under the left side of the dashboard, which would be like to the left side of your left shin bone when you are driving.
The other is in a black plastic box under the hood of the car, most usually in front of the passenger seat near the firewall behind the engine.
Some though are found on the right side in front of the driver's seat near the battery., also in a black plastic box.
God bless your efforts.

I have a 1994 honda accord ! The car started givin

You need to let your car cool down over night if possible. If you can't wait over night turn the car off, open the engine hood, and leave it open for a while so it quickly cools down. Check the radiator fluid level. To do this there should be a plastic tank near one side of the radiator which is located on the very front of the engine under the hood. The plastic tank is clear and should have yellow/green fluid in it. If the tank is low or empty let the car cool down like stated above but even longer. After about 1/2 to 1 hour with the hood open it is safe to open the cap located on top of the plastic tank. Add pre-mixed coolant fluid through the cap until the fluid reaches the "FULL" mark on the plastic tank, replace cap, start engine and let it idle or run for about 15 minutes with the hood open. Check the fluid in the plastic tank again and add fluid if needed. Repeat until fluid remains at full level. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE COOLANT FLUID AND CAN NOT BUY SOME YOU CAN USE JUST PLAIN TAP WATER BUT YOU BETTER HAVE YOUR RADIATOR FLUID CHECKED BEFORE WINTER. Good luck!!

Just got a 94 honda civic drove it home it is a will not go in gear it makes a griding sound and will not go into any gear..tryed starting it in gear and it jump...I am a girl I think maybe the...

Jessica. Raise the hood, and look at the 2 containers that are probably white plastic with grey plastic lids.
They are right in front of where you sit in the driver's seat, except they are under the hood.
These is a large and a small one. The small one should be nearer the fender, the larger one should be neared the middle of the car.
The large one is your brake master cylinder, the small one is your clutch master cylinder.
Take the lid off the small one, if it is empty, you have a leak, probably in the "slave" cylinder which is down on the transmission.
If it is full, you have a broken part in the clutch area, like a cable, or a clutch part inside the bell housing. :-(
Both of these units take brake fluid to fill them, but just filling them will not fix the problem, repairs are needed.
Be blessed.

Drove car thru deep puddle. Car stalled and won't restart.

A car will stall when driven through standing water if the ignition system is not watertight. Worn spark plug wires and coil wire, improperly seated spark plug wires, or loose distributor cap are all possibilities.
There is a spray called CRC or some agent that promotes a water drying action can be used to dry out a wet distributor cap and wires. Drying off the electrical components will remove the moisture that is grounding the electrical energy that should normally go directly to the spark plugs.
If car will not restart after stalling from the water splashing as described in the question - and the poor condition of the electrical system is ruled out, some water may have passed through the air intake into the engine and perhaps into the cylinder. If this happens have the car towed to a repair shop where they can remove the water before any further damage results. This condition is not easy to occur but a real deep puddle can set the stage for water to be sucked into the air intake and pass through the filter into the intake and through the valves into the cylinders. This is why you see a Hummer with a snorkel - for wading through deep water

My windshield washer reservoir leaks on my '98 Honda Civic.

Ok... put the duct tape down. And back away from the truck... just kidding.. I wouldn't recommend duct tape. or hot glue...
If you have a visible crack or hole, drain the tank to below the crack, clean with a little vinegar and water, and lightly sand the plastic housing.
Place a small patch of plastic sheetrock mesh tape over the crack and then...
Use a bit of epoxy that is recommended for use on plastics. Mix up a small batch, spread over the crack and over the mesh.. Let dry and refill.
Don't worry about pressure, because the tank isn't under pressure on most cars...

Not under hood at front of either fender or maybe behind grille. Plug may have a black plastic cover over it, so look real close.
