1993 Mercury Sable Problems
Worn motor mounts can cause the motor to rise during acceleration, causing a clunking noise and possibly damaging the AC hoses. Damage to the AC hoses can cause a loss refrigerant resulting in no cold air from the AC. The motor mount will need to be replaced prior to repairing the damaged hose or the problem will continue.
White smoke coming from the exhaust could indicate that a head gasket has blown or there is a cracked cylinder head. Our technicians tell us that removal and inspection of the cylinder heads will be required to confirm a crack is present.
While steering, if you hear a clunk or a rattle, or if you experience premature tire wear, this could indicate the inner tie rod ends are loose or worn and will require replacement.
1993 Mercury Sable Questions
Dealer said that they cannot find any error codes. He does not know what is causing it.
I can shut my trunk and yank on it with all my might and it won't open. But after a few miles or a hard bump and it flings open. I disconnected the trunk release but it did not solve the problem. Do I need to replace the entire assembly, can it be adjusted, or should I just weld it shut?!?
This car has a previous owner who did not take good care of it. I got an estimate from a shop in town for $2801 for total repairs. The one thing that I really need fixed is the ignition. I do not know exactly which part of the ignition is bad, it stalled out twice so far and would not turn over o...
1993 Mercury Sable Recalls
Ford has recalled certain 1986-1995 Taurus and Mercury Sable models and 1988-1994 Lincoln Continental models in high corrosion, cold weather states because the rear subframe mount plate nuts may corrode and fail, causing the subframe to drop.

This is in conjunction with a safety recall to protect tires in the event of spring failure. In the event of fracture through the year 2001, dealers will replace both front springs.
1993 Mercury Sable Reviews
I drove my Sable out of the Manhattan showroom Christmas 1993 and she has been a very sweet ride for the last 19 years and 180,000 miles. I had various parts replaced in recent years ie: alternator, water pump, radiator. Major issue was the head gaskets replaced Jan 2011 and for no apparent reason since the car never ran low on coolant or overheated. Its 6000 miles later and she flys as she a...
I bought this care for $1100 ten months ago with 106,000 miles. The royal blue paint job is wearing off and the dashboard has cracks. I saw another identical Sable in the same color and it's paint is wearing off the exact same way! The car runs perfectly. Immediately after purchase I had my mechanic check it out and do a major tuneup and maintenance for $700. I was taking it on a 2,500 mil...
