SOURCE: how do i reach the rear spark plugs on the 24v 3.0L 1999 Mercury Sable

I recently did a tuneup on my 88 sable, and the back spark plugs were a pain to get to. However, it didn't require any special procedures. You may want to try getting a SMALL ratchet extension to avoid jamming your wrench into the firewall, because without one you won't be able to get far enough into the spark plug seat and a normal sized extension will prevent you from getting in at all. You could also try an appropriately sized deep socket (sorry I can't remember what size the plugs are) and use that instead of a spark plug socket. Just try to use the spark plug socket to put the new ones in, or you may damage the connectors using a normal socket.

SOURCE: DOHC or OHV, How do I tell?

If it's a V6 then it would be a Double Over Head Cam... Thermostat will be on top of engine where coolant outlet to upper hose is located... Hope this helps...;-)

SOURCE: mercury sable 2001 duratec engine DOHC I get check engine light and diagnostic code PO401". Any suggestions?

Barring any vacuum leaks, P0401 is indicative of a bad EGR valve. Hope this answers your question. Best of luck.

SOURCE: how do you replace a thermostat on a 1999 mercury

Here ya go!

3.0L DOHC VIN S Engine
CAUTION NEVER open, service or drain the radiator or cooling system when hot; serious burns can occur from the steam and hot coolant. Also, when draining engine coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted to ethylene glycol antifreeze and could drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantities.Always drain coolant into a sealable container. If necessary, clean coolant maybe reused unless it is contaminated or more than two years old.


  1. Drain the coolant until the level of the coolant is below the level of the thermostat.
  2. Raise the vehicle and support it with jack stands.
  3. Disconnect the lower radiator hose from the water inlet connection.
  4. Unfasten the two water inlet connection retaining bolts and remove the water inlet connection.
  5. Remove the O-ring seal and thermostat from the water inlet connection. Inspect the O-ring for damage and replace as necessary.
To install:
  1. Clean the water inlet connection mating surfaces.
  2. Install the O-ring, thermostat and the water inlet connection. Refer to Figure 10 if you can't remember how the O-ring and thermostat are positioned.
  3. Install the water inlet connection assembly retainers and tighten them to 71-106 inch lbs. (8-12 Nm).
  4. Connect the lower radiator hose to the water inlet connection.
  5. Fill the engine with coolant, start the engine and check for leaks.
  6. Stop the engine and top off the coolant recovery reservoir as necessary.

All Mercuries in 2001 were shipped with a label affixed to the inside of the engine compartment, listing FIRING ORDER, spark plug gap, and vacuum routing. Find the label, and there's your answer! :)

I have a 1999 Mercury Sable with a 3.0 24V DOHC. I got into it this morning and noticed the radio,clock, heater, (whole panel is out) and windshield wipers, speedometer and tack are all not working. But...


It might be worth your time to replace the ignition switch. The power through the switch is working off the Acc lead for most of the things that work while the car is not running, so the wires are still connected.

Drive belt diagram for 24V DOHC engine


re: 1996 Mercury Sable, ohv V6 . . . . A mechanic diagnosed the cause of engine failure to a bent piston rod as a result of someone having poured water directly into the engine -- is that possible? Further, research showed evidence that water had been leaking past the head gasket directly into the affected cylinder. Additionally, the heads had to be resurfaced.
