My son purchased today a 2000 Mecury Sable with the Vulcan engine and right at 60000 miles on the speedometer. It is in beautiful shape. The engine light came on right after a 100 mile drive home. What could it be?

The engine light came ON.Whenever the check engine light comes on then that is the indication of error codes stored in cars computer.In this case the car needs to be scanned at car diagnosis center to retrieve the codes.Once the error codes are received the exact faulty part can be replaced as per the codes./You can get the car scanned at your local car garage,if they do the diagnostic check for the care.But if there is no place near by your area to do the diagnostic check,then at www.autozone.con service center its absolutely free to get car scanned.And also at autozone they deal will car parts so you can get the parts replaced from autozone if required. ------------------ The check engine light ON means it can be any thing faulty /loose which is not getting detected by the cars computer.Every electrically controlled part in your car is controlled/detected by the computer.So if any of the part connection gets loose or that part itself gets faulty/short then computer will not see/detect that part and so this check engine light comes ON. ------------ This will help.Thanks.

Please Help!!! 1999 Mercury Sable doesn't seem to accelerate past first gear..engine revs up to very high rpms.

If the speedometer stops working the odometer stops also. Sounds like it is stuck in first gear. The RPM went up because the throttle was response to pedal but transmission not response. Check transmission fluid color. Whip off dipstick on a white paper towel look for gray if see any that is metal shavings and transmission is bad.

I have a 2001 Mecury Sable and today when i started it the check engine light came on and it was shaking real bad. I pull off and its acting like it doesn't really want to move. What might this problem...

There are many possibilities. If you can get to an Autozone, Advance autoparts, or Oreilys store they will scan it for free. Once you have a Code number you can get parts for it or shop around for your best price on repairs.

Check your oil level, and water in case that is the cause for the repair light. Make sure you are seeing the check engine light and not an ABS or Brake warning. Shaking with the ABS or Brake light would mean the car should not be driven before inspecting.

2001 mecury sable engine/belts

It shouldn't just fall off unless it broke from age, you did not say how old miles wise the belt was, if you replaced the belt and there is still noise you will have to check everything the belt turns, but most likely one of the idler or the tension-er pulley has a bad bearing in it, check everything by turning it and feeling for roughness in the bearings.
