What do you do if your 91 Mercury Sable overheated and now it will not run?
It depends on how hot it got. You need to get an accomplished mechanic to checkit out.
You can check for compresson by removing your plugs one at at time checking for compresson by letting someone turn the key while you check for compresson, if your compression are weak you might need to remove everything from the top, from intake manifolds, to head gaskets, then from the bottom you need to remove the oil pan and the muffler assembly, once the top and bottom are removed you can remove your pistons from under by pushing it upward, you will have to unbolt some nuts from the connecting rods to push out the pistons, once pistons are out check for wear and scratches on the pistons and cylinders, replace piston rings and reassemble back to how it was removed.
My 1991 mercury sable runs but sounds like it has no oil and the oil light stays on after it starts?
Why does the low coolant light on a 1999 Mercury Sable stay on even though the coolant level is good?
Run a compression test. If compression is down in several cylinders you've probably warped a head. That's a common problem after an engine has overheated, that's why it's so essential that you NEVER allow an engine to run out of coolant, and you should watch the temperature indicator. If an engine dies from being overheated you've probably blown a head gasket.
Why would your 1995 Mercury Sable continue to run even after you turn key to off after changing ignition switch?
Where exactly in the trunk of a 2001 Sable is the cable that connects to a CD Changer or other audio ie MP3 device?
If the pump is working properly it is very hard to hear it run. You can however hear it if you remove the gas cap and listen at the fuel filler while someone else turns on the ignition without starting the engine. It will run for a few seconds and then shut down which is normal. It will only continue to run when the engine is started.
Oil yes. Sludge from overheating maybe not. Might be able to run some engine oil flush through the oil system and see if it cleans it out. Don't drive the car with it in the engine and change the oil twice after you drain it all out to be sure you get all of the kerosene out. Otherwise, you will end up with a locked up, overheated engine.
Run a compression test. When engines overheat the head(s) often warp causing the head gasket to blow. If you find low compression between any two cylinders OR if any of the sparkplugs are wet with water or coolant as you do the compression test, it's the head gasket and warped head. BTW, that's one of the most common problems that shows up after an engine has overheated.
Your mercury sable blew the radiator hose that runs to the block car ran hot and tried to repaiar on the road drove another 7 miles and shut off car- now wont start-may-b timing has spark and gas?
If a 1976 Chevy Blazer with a 454 overheated due to the fan belt snapping now it will not start what could be some possible problems?

Tilapia is considered a low mercury risk. Larger, older, ocean run fish like shark, swordfish and king mackerel generally contain higher levels of mercury and should be avoided by pregnant women.

Does the antenna motor run when you turn the radio on or off? If no, then the entire antenna assembly likely needs to be replaced. If the motor does run, the nylon 'teeth' on the mast are likely stripped or broken. Replacing the antenna mast (that's a good search term), is an easy task, and can often be done from outside the car. I found one on-line for less than $20 - and easily replaced…
check the fuse box. If all of the windows went at the same time it is unlikely to be the motors. See if they are all run by the same fuse. If so, it is probably that. Also if any other minor electrical things do not work along with the windows it is likely a fuse because they tend to bundle things on one fuse.
