I have a Mercury Sable 1997 actually, Same thing internally…

Customer Question
I have a Mercury...

I have a Mercury Sable 1997 actually, Same thing internally technically from what I've seen. Anyways, my alternator went out a couple weeks back and then my battery a day after I replaced the alternator. I tried to turn on the A/C and it doesn't even blow anymore.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the Freon level?

It was blowing ice cold before my alternator went out and now my A/C won't even blow air hot or cold. Doesn't blow anything.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Sable yourself? What have you tried so far?

For now yes, only because I'm trying to sell it and don't want to take it to a dealership because it won't sell for as much as the shop will charge me. I'm getting a truck next week.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No ma'am.

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.

9 dollars, 2 hours of my time, and I drove away. Your diagnosis was right on the mark. Thank you so much.
