1998 Mercury Sable LX 3.0 from North America
Check the speed sensor before you rebuild the TRANNY!
I thought the transmission was going. The speedometer stopped working, the wipers would go on at anytime. First put in a speed sensor, It fixes everything. One transmission place estimated me for $1900 and someone told me about a $40.00 part that fixed everything!
I also have a problem with the heat not working. Something is wrong with the front end also. My car only has 64000 miles on it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I had a same problem with the transmission, and the dealer gave me an estimate 2000-4000 dollars. I went to see a small garage for an oil change and they fixed the problem too. They changed the speedometer sensor, and the car is running like new now.
I had the same problem with heat; they disconnected the AC, and since then the heating is fine. Right now we have minus 15 C, and the car is heating OK.
