Question about 1996 Mercury Sable

1 Answer

96 sable I have a 1996 Mercury Sable with about 115300 miles on it. The most i've done in the past couple of years is routine oil and filter changes and battery changes. Is there anything I should do outside of these things to keep it in tip top shape?

You're approaching 120k miles, and usually a timing belt would be due around every 60k, so you should prepare for that. That's the really comprehensive service that includes a LOT of parts and labor - timing belt, tensioner, accessory belt(s), spark plugs, all fluids, all filters, water pump, thermostat, full inspection, tire rotation, etc.

Where is the oil pump on a 1997 mercury sable 3.0 engine think its weak as I hear valves chatter and changed oil filter it was only half full of oil is this normal


Half full is not normal. You may have leak or burn. Clatter is usually the hydralic valve lifters. Does it quiet down after it's been running a while? What is the oil pressure?

The Oil light came on on my 1996 Mercury Sable I changed the Sending unit but that didn't help so I was told that it may be the oil pump I pulled the oil pan off, and removed the oil pump. I tore


Have you checked if the fault is your oil filter,probably the filter pressure valve inside doesn't keep any pressure? or the other thing is a possibility of the pressure pipes are clogged or semi clogged.

1996 MERCURY SABLE 65,000 MILES ON SPEEDO. TRANSMISSION STARTED TO SLIP ALSO RUST UNDER VEHICLE. LINCOLN MERCURY STATED REPAIR WOULD COST 4 TO 5 THOUSAND DOLLARS AND YOU MIGHT AS WELL JUNK THE VEHICLE


Transmission problems are an issue with Sables. If you Google transmission and Mercury Sable you will come to quite a few complaints. There are actually a few posts on this website where folks are having issue too. Personally a cheap o-ring in my 1999 Sable went out resulting in a $1800 transmission repair bill. I literally gave the car away about three years ago. In almost 20 years of owning vehicles the two years I had the Sable was the most expensive and busiest in the way of repairs.
