Do i have to pull motor out or lift motor to change oil pan gasket?


YOU MAY HAVE TO PULL THE MOTOR MOUNT BOLTS, AND RAISE THE ENGINE HIGH ENOUGH TO GET THE OIL PAN TO CLEAR THE CROSSMEMBER, BUT YOU SHOULDN'T HAVE TO PULL IT OUT! JUST HIGH ENOUGH TO CLEAR THE OIL PUMP INSIDE THE PAN!

How do you remove a starter on a 1998 mercury mystique 2.0 litre


Please first see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r5973094-starter_replace, then see specific instructions below for your Mercury. Let me know if you have questions.
Your starter is in the back of the engine.
from autozone.com
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove air intake resonators. [loosen clamp and remove bolts, lift out resonator]
  3. Remove starter motor upper mounting bolts.
  4. Raise and support the vehicle.
  5. Remove the nuts on the starter terminals and remove the cables from the terminals.
  6. Remove the two starter lower retaining bolts and remove the starter.

How do I change transmission fluid in a 1998 Sable?


ok there are 2 ways..

1 .) get a pump machine and pump it out (like the kind most mechanics use)

2.) the easy way

  • under the transmission is a bolt to the oil pan..
  • unbolt it,, the transmission oil will come out.. (this bolt is actually a flush plug)
  • when its all drained out tighten back the bolt and fill it with new fluid.. ( 5 - 6 quarts)
  • easy as that .. good luck

Most likely, you'll need to raise the engine a bit to get the oil pan to clear the crossmember and the crank throws. This is not as hard as it sounds, but you will need a lifting bar to raise the engine and remove the bolts from the engine mounts. I would get a manual for this car as they are not the most intuitive to work on.
