2005 Mercury Sable Questions & Answers

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Mercury? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Mercury tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Sable’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • Does my Sable's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2005 Sable’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Mercury. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
  • Can Mercury Sable transmission fluid leak? Yes. Mercury Sable transmission fluid can leak over time and potentially cause transmission issues.
