  1. DTC P0740

    Until I shut the car off...
  2. DTC P0740

    Flashed at me on saturday. TC unlocking and locking as it should be, even when the light is flashing in the cluster.
  3. DTC P0740

    I did a pan drop with fluid change and it's still happening randomly.
  4. DTC P0740

    The thing is... The convertor is still locking and unlocking as it should be! Even when the transaxle light is flashing at me!!
  5. DTC P0740

    Does anyone have any tips or knowledge about this code? The stupid transaxle light goes off and flashes at me about it and the car seems completely fine about it. I have been told to try "power flushing" the transmission via the cooler lines but I don't have the proper tools to this procedure myself. Any knowledge would be great. If my pile of crap AX4N is about to go then, I guess I'll have to look into either replacing it or *gulp* replace the car....
  6. they are leds, you get new switches when they go out.
  7. you have to run wires from the rcu location to where you want the switch.
  8. Shelbyracer78's 2002 Mercury Sable Ls Premium (Allison)

    Couple weeks ago i changed out the extremely wasted trans mount with a solid rubber one i found on rockauto. Sadly i think the trans is getting tired of my sh!t and it sometimes throws a P0740 code... I'm not sure what I can do about it. A replacement trans isn't really an option...
  9. EVAP & CAT Issues

    keep driving the car. only real way for the them to become complete
  10. engine rebuild

    Just run the car into ground. its not worth modding these outdated old cars. Just keep up on maintenance and it'll last for a long time, given before the rust sets in and ruins the whole car.
  11. Front wheel bearing hubs

    Over the almost 4 years of ownership of having my sable. I"ve done all 4 hubs. Both fronts were R&Red and the rears were swapped because rear disc conversion. I've found that popping the lower ball joint makes the job for the fronts miles easier.
  12. Please tell me the back window rolls down.

  14. Shelbyracer78's 2002 Mercury Sable Ls Premium (Allison)

    Couple years ago the thermostat piping failed on me when the port for the return line broke off. I replaced it back then with the Dorman part..... 40/10 DO NOT RECOMMEND. (you'll see soon enough) I finally got my hands on the proper motorcraft unit which included a new thermostat housing. Also had a chance today to replace said unit. Here's the pics from the job. Wonderful new Motorcraft unit. POS dorman removed Motorcraft installed went and got some worm gear hose clamps to replace the grenade spring clamps. This is why you shouldn't cheap out on part. I really tried to take the dorman out in one piece.... That didn't happen... All the plastic turned brittle, the hoses were able to be torn apart by hand and the return line snapped off as soon as I touched it. And of course, you all know i keep the car looking good... Might, could have a super rare mod coming in the mail soon for the car....
