  1. This looks to be the same engine that was in my V6 94 mustang but my friend has been having issues with his 1993 Mercury Sable 3.8

    He got gas the other day and about a couple minutes after he left the station the car was starting to act up. When in gear at idle the car would shake. but at idle and the car in Park or Neutral you couldnt feel the shaking. and with the heat on the shaking got worse.

    and when you go to drive it you hear a puttering sound coming out the exhaust and has no power at all.

    It has the same connector to check the codes as my 5.0 mustang does and I got these codes. keep in mind the VSS code has been there before he even got the car.

    But KOEO- 181, 337,452

    KOER- 172,536

    and i did a cylender test and cylender 2 popped up
