Engine Q&A 1989 Mercury Sable

  • Why does the check engine light come on when I start my Sable? Generally, your check engine light turning on upon ignition is not a bad thing. It’s just your Sable firing up its circuits. The light should go off shortly. Bring your vehicle in if it doesn't.

Whistling could mean a belt is misaligned or there's an intake leak. Squealing can be traced back to a loose fan belt, and grinding might be coming from the brakes, not the engine.

Steer clear of these habits to help protect engine performance and efficiency.
  • Is it okay to put water in my Mercury Sable radiator? While it’s not recommended, you can use water in your Sable radiator in emergencies. Normally, you should only use a 50/50 mix of coolant and water or a pre-mixed coolant. However, if you are completely out of coolant and must continue driving, it’s better to have water in your coolant reservoir than nothing.
