    Shelbyracer78's 2002 Mercury Sable Ls Premium (Allison)

    I think I've got another mod in the works for this old thing.
  7. After many weeks and many test drives, I finally have another bull. Here is my "new" 2002 Mercury Sable LS Premium "Sport". It has many factory options, but the ones I would need to add and some rough edges too. The mileage is on the high side, over 166,XXX miles. It came from the dealership with with Taurus rims with shot tires. So I picked up a "new" Sable rim, (matched balanced at college, no weights on the face of the wheel) we put my wheels and tires on it as well. I also swapped over my dipped spear for the chrome one. I hope I can finish making this Sable a true "sport" before I see it go. The first mod done to the new car: https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/oFhvgpgVKpXmM7EDO-U6qnJvvPWQ5lxKLyoAK-eg8Q=w769-h577-no A full detail will becoming in the spring (WHEN ITS FU*KING WARM OUT!!!!).

    Did something dangerous the other day. Washed it.... Also found a needed snew teering wheel finally and you can see my double din radio that replaced the mach audio a couple months ago. If you know this screen then you know what has happened... No more limiters on this #RaceSable.... I ended getting Sam Reeve's old XCAL3 for a good price and a tune for a good price.

    DTC P0740

    Until I shut the car off...

    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....

    DTC P0740

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

    DTC P0740

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

    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!!
  19. they are leds, you get new switches when they go out.
  20. you have to run wires from the rcu location to where you want the switch.

    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...

    EVAP & CAT Issues

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

    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.

    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.
