1996 Mercury Sable Question: Where is the oil pump located on this vehicle?
Answer #1mastertech6371 July 04, 2011, 07:20Master
inside the oil pan. the pick ups clogg frequently and cause this type of issue. it can be determined when the pan is dropped and looking at the pick up screen.
Sorry, i miss read the motor. it is behind the crank pulley. thanks for correcting me.
