2004 Mercury Sable Problems
The engine oil pan gasket can develop a leak. Leaking oil may accumulate on the exhaust system resulting in a burning smell. Replacing the gasket should correct this leak.
The magnet for the camshaft position sensor may fall out of its mount and damage the synchronizers. This causes long crank times when starting the engine and may cause the Check Engine Light to illuminate. If this happens, both the magnets and the synchronizers need to be replaced.
2004 Mercury Sable Questions
Our power steering went out, was just replace within the month and the battery drained to dead and car stopped. We were told the AC compressor was going bad and needed to be replaced. Are these all on the same belts? How can we tell if we are being sold a AC compressor when me may not need one...
