My wife’s 2004 Mercury Sable broke down on the highway last night. We had it towed to the nearest Ford Dealership and are awaiting the official diagnosis. I am 99% sure it is transmission, as the engine didn’t die, but zero of engines power is reaching tires in any gear.

I am just trying to get an idea of how much this is going to cost us so we can mentally.

Figure about $3,200 for a transmission replacement.

Did you at any time service the transmission fluid?

Not ourselves, all our general maintanence has been done by Ford dealers.


#4

Did your Ford dealers ever do a trans fluid change?
If so, how often was this done?

If not, then you have found the reason for transmission failure.


#5

Cross your fingers and hope that it is the linkage between the gear shift and transmission, or an electrical/electronic problem.
