    i recently had the same problem with my 2004 mercury sable. i actually had to keep my car on at all times except once i made it home because i was too afraid to turn it off or else it would not start back up. one shop told me it was the starter, another said the ignition, another says the air mass flow sensor. of course i did not spend the money to replace those items cause it didnt seem to match the problem. i took it to one last shop before finally throwing in the towel they recommended that i take it to auto zone to have the battery, alternator, and otc's checked. i did and turns out the battery was bad. once i replaced the battery i had no other problem with starting the car.

Depends on the sound that it makes when you turn the key over.

Clicking noise...usually the starter

If it sounds like its going to start, but doesnt, most likely the battery.

If you have replaced the battery recently, then its the alternator.

Sometimes there can be oil build up over the spark plugs so it doesnt get the spark to start.

Hope you get it fixed!!

2001 Mercury Sable Intermittent Fuel Pump?


You are right that it could be either component, or something else electrical. The security system will kill the fuel system if the wrong key is used or the system is acting up.
A mechanic would check base fuel pressure with a gauge and also see if the pump is getting power from the relay when it fails to start.

98 mercury sable runs fine but when you turn it off it may not start. let it set for a while it might start and run for some time until you shut it off and same thing happens will not start


The likely cause of this is a defective electric fuel pump, to verify buy a can of spray starting fluid at the parts store, next time it won't start remove the air hose to the engine and spray the starting fluid in, if it starts you will need to replace the fuel pump. The fuel pump is located inside the fuel tank, about a 3 hour job to replace.

next time this happens, listn vry caefully at the fuel tank while you or someone turns the key to "ON". Listn or the fuel pump to run for 5 seconds and shut off. If it does not do this, your fuel pump is not activating.
I suspect the fuel pump is going bad, if you bang on tank bottom, it may start up again. Th pump is sticking due to contamination or the armature is stopping at a bad spot.

Possible Electrical Short Or Module Malfunction


I have this same exact problem in my 2004 Mercury Sable. It seems that it causes scrapping noise in my engine though aswell. I have had it for a few months and I fix it but turning the car off after a minute or two and just restarting it. That seems to fix it but it's progressivly gotten worse.
