Check the thermostat. The temperature sender is to the right of the thermostat and if the thermostat doesn't open the hot coolant from the block won't be flowing to the sender/gauge showing it is overheating. The thermostat is at the end of the top radiator hose where it enters the engine. Check the wires to the sender to make sure they are connected. Flush the coolant and heater core at the firewall connections as it may become clogged.

2002 mercury sable overheating


Generally speaking, you can run the engine with or without the heater connected and it should make no difference in cooling the engine.
I wonder if the engine is actually running above 220 degrees.
Do you know where the steam or smoke is coming from ?
It could be a leak rather than actual overheating.

You need the cooling system topped off and the system pressure tested to find the leak and repair it then everything should be ok.

I have a 2002 Mercury Sable 3.0. I noticed when


The clicking noise is the motor for the "blend door". The heater core and the air conditioning side share the same ducting. When you move the knob a small motor moves the door letting the respective hot or cool flow happen.
The heater core is probably blocked. The engineers at Ford have the coolant hoses bypassing the core with a WYE at the firewall. The coolant takes the path of least resistance and stops FLUSHING the heater core and it eventually clogs.

97 sable daytime running lights


This could be caused by a relay that is staying closed when the key is turned off. The contacts fry over time and stick closed. Replacement is usually easy.
