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.

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! :)

1999 mercury sable 24v engine oil ends up in transmission. where to start


Seal between the Engine and Transmission is leaking. The oil is only getting into the bell housing area. If you are checking your transmission oil and it is black or brown you need a major transmission repair and fluid and filter change.

98 MERCURY SABLE. TURNS OVER BUT WON'T START.


I would check to see if you have spark and fuel at the motor. Double check that everything was connected back up.

How do i get to my rear Spark plugs?


I assume you have the 24v engine...you must remove the the plentium(sic) to get at the rear plugs. This means removing the air filter line and also the throttle body.
