Mileage? If your cars engine has high mileage there are many things it could be. First I would try a major tune up! Cap, Rotor, Wires, Plugs, Oil change, Oil filter, Fuel filter, Fuel injector serivce etc. If your gas milage does not get better, you most likely have an injector or some other fuel system problem. altough their are other things that can cause this problem.

In your 1997 Mercury Sable wagon you have to add coolant every other day you can't find any leaks What could be the problem?

If the Sable is equipped with the 3.8 liter engine, it is probably ablown headgasket. If you cannot see an external leak, then you have an internal leak. An internal leak is more likely than not caused by a blown head gasket or cracked head. Stop driving the car immediately or you will do serious engine damage. A compression test will possibly help verify if you have a blown head gasket. Get this repaired ASAP.
