Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

I have a 2000 mercury sable LS. I have blown 5 coil packs. The car shakes and the engine light flashes. I have replaced one of them twice, and I have no idea how to prevent them from breaking.Please someone help.

problem #1

Feb 112009

Sable Ls Premium 3.0L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 66,300 miles

We bought this car used from a dealer in Feb of this year,66,300 mis.Car ran beautiful on test drive,and on 25 mi. ride home. Next day it ran horrible,barely made it back to dealership. They said the code read 2 coils misfiring,they replaced them no charge. A few days later we had rain&wet snow, same problem, back to the dealer again.1 coil they had replaced went bad,replaced IT again. It worked fine for a while but every time it rains we can detect a miss but it clears up, and the engine light goes back out.Now that the Lemon Law Warranty has expired, it's been back to the dealer again, this time it was another cylinder coil misfire ( there are 6 ign coils mind you ). Coils aren't covered in my extended warranty that I paid $ 1700 for, so now I'm out $185.00 and we've only got just over 3000mis on it. WHY does this problem only happen when it's wet out... it runs perfect otherwise... ANY IDEAS ?
