    It runs good but when I stop ( or slow down for a stop sign but not entirely stop) it acts like it's on N. And I have to shift gear.

See my answer to post by dwood1542 on 2/6/09 for 1998 Taurus. It could be the VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor). The same thing happened on my 1998. The VSS drives the speedometer and tells the electronic transmission how fast the car is going. So, if you are moving and it happens, look at your speedometer. If the speedometer goes to zero, its the VSS. P500 and P502 codes may be stored in OBD-II.

Check the transmission fluid first. it sounds like one of the clutch plates is sticking.

If you shift into second after you've stopped, can you get the car moving?

98 MERCURY SABLE. SPEEDOMETER STOPPED WORKING AND THEN THE TRANSMISSION WOULD NOT SHIFT PROPERLY. IT REVS HIGH AND THEN WHEN YOU LET UP ON THE GAS IT WILL SHIFT. I WAS TOLD IT IS THE OUTPUT SPEED...


yes, it's the speed sensor. It is mounted in the transmission above the axle as seen in picture below. The part is $24 at autozone.com. Before buying the part, make sure the connector is properly attached to the sensor and the wiring is intact. If the wiring is good, the sensor is most likely the problem. let me know if you have any more questions.

1999 Mercury Sable 55,000 miles ....will not move .


Since the fluid level is okay, I think your gonna need a rebuilt transmission. Tow it to a good transmission shop.

Gar wont go in reverse or drive...just the shifter


Sounds like lack of automatic transmission fluid. Other possibilities are the linkage is broken from the shift to the transmission or a bad shift solenoid.. I'd certainly check the fluid before doing anything else. Hope this helps.

98 Mercury Sable no overdrive


I would suggest trying a tranny service. Changing the fluid and filter may help this. You can also put some transmission conditioner or something in it and try that. Lucas makes a real good transmission cleaner/conditioner. Be careful not to overfill the tranny though by adding this product. If this doesn't fix it then the soleniod will probably need to be replaced which requires tearing into the tranny

it sounds like you need your shifter cable adjusted or replaced or you may have a major motor mount problem that when you decel and acel you are rocking that cable out of postion. but i think it will just take a small adjustment. good luck
