Low brake pedal after replacing rear pads

Just had rear pads replaced 2008 Sable Premier AWD because dealer said they were getting low. Now I have a very low pedal, and need to pump a few times to get pressure. Went back to shop, removed 4 wheels & checked for leaks etc - none. Bled 4 wheels - got no signs of air. Still low pedal. I have op...

Re: Heated driver seat

Paint concern? Seems like Deysha might need an appointment with an optometrist, or she needs to stop copying & pasting the generic responses to have people with problems return to their Ford Dealer. BTW, my 2008 Sable Premier AWD experienced a problem with the drivers side heated seat. I searched fo...

Re: taurus 2010 se won't start

I had the same problem with my 2008 Sable. Called AAA for a tow and my wife for a ride home. Tried her key and BINGO - problem solved. It's too bad you only have the one key, as you could buy blanks on ebay and program them yourself if you had 2 working keys. BTW about a week or two later, I tried m...

Re: Tires

My 2008 Sable has 225/55/18s and I also have the Hankook Optimo 727 Tires. Have put on almost 83 Thousand Miles on these tires (in fact the most mileage I've ever put on a set of tires) with rotations at almost every oil change. Even in this Boston winter we've had so far - 9 feet of snow, 2 blizzar...

Re: Warning Lights Come On Car Stops

Re: warning lights come on and off

The 2008-2009 Generation has KNOWN Transmission issues and FORD is NOT acknowledging that fact. There are TSBs on the tranny CLUNKING while shifting and other problems, and in the past they had offered a re-flash of the tranny computer to help. Some have reported little or no change and some have re...

2008 Sable won't start won't crank - With **REMEDY**

Yesterday when leaving work I went to start the car and nothing. No clicking, no cranking etc, and I replaced the battery a few months ago because dealer kept telling me it was failing the test. I disconnected the battery & waited - nothing. Got a pipe and hammer & was tapping the starter case - not...

I have a 2008 Sable Premier AWD with DUAL Zone climate control. The job in this car takes about 10-15 minutes. You need to remove the glove compartment door. start the car, turn the heat/ac on and look and feel to see which actuator is clicking (THERE ARE TWO if you have DUAL Climate Controls) then,...

Re: Recall letter

No Letter, but a few weeks ago I had my 2008 Sable Premier AWD at the dealer for THE WORKS, and they told me they had to reprogram the computer or PCM for some emissions recall that had just came out. No big deal. But they said the process is s l o w, just like when/if you update the SYNC - it takes...

Re: 08 Taurus trans fail safe mode p0720

I know this isn't a fix, but for now I have been disconnecting the battery terminals for an hour or so when this is happening, after I reach my destination (work). If I can't reach my destination, I pull over, shut engine off, remove key, lock door, unlock door etc & start engine. Usually the lights...

2008 Sable AWD with approx. 94,300 miles on it now. A few months ago my car had an 'episode' while on a highway on-ramp. No bumps or potholes etc - just recently-paved, smooth roadway. Noticed the wrench icon was on. Then saw speedometer was zero. Tach was a little higher than usual and engine slugg...

Re: Warranty Items

I bought a 2008 Premier AWD Sable in August of 2011 from Salem Ford Hyundai in Salem New Hampshire. After I had the car a week or so I noticed a sound like a tire was out of balance. I wasn't going to drive from Massachusetts to New Hampshire to balance a tire, but another week or so I decided to tr...

Just signed up. Hi everyone. Was a member of the Ford Truck Enthusiast until I traded in my 2000 F150. Bought a 2008 Sable 3 weeks ago. Tried the heated seats when I went to look at the car but now the driver's side doesn't work. Light stays on for a few seconds & goes out. Brought car back to the F...
