2001 Mercury Sable 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 67500 miles
Last week, I purchased a 2001 Mercury Sable. I did not notice it during the test drive, but now I find that whenever the car is in DRIVE at a stopped position, the torque converter clutch seems to constantly engage and disengage from the engine, causing an annoying "thumping" sensation the whole time the car is stationary. The needle of the tachometer fluctuates with the thumping. Now, the ENGINE light is on. Aside from this, the engine and transmission runs smoothly. Someone told me this is normal. However, I find it hard to believe that Ford can sell a car with this problem as normal. What is your diagnosis of this?
have the same problem?
