Engine Mechanical problem
2003 Mercury Sable 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 75000 miles
When running errands, I can make several stops but after engine is at operating temperature, if I turn the engine off for less than fifteen minutes, then re-start the car, it will stall after about a block. This has happened 8 times in the last 5 months. Engine temperature normal, and engine light does not come on until engine stops. Engine will restart after 15 minutes and run perfectly for weeks. The engine light stays on. Mechanic gets an Analyzer code 191 - engine gasoline pressure low. Mechanic put on pressure gauge and ran for 3 hours, but it did not stall. They did not turn the car off after it reached operating temp and try to restart it after 5 minutes as I had instructed. Not sure if restarting and letting it idle will cause it to stall. I have always RE-started it, put it in gear and driven about a block before it stalled. The car has an anti-theft system but the dealer says that would prevent the car from starting and would not stall the engine after going a block.
have the same problem?
