Checked those out but can only find basic instructions. The man who will be fixing it for me wants to make sure there isn't anything specific to the car he should or should not do.Forgive me but I have no clue what I am doing when it comes to auto repairs.

Your best bet then is a factory service manual. That is the most comprehensive.

Barring that, a 25 dollar yearly subscription to Alldata.com will give you what you need to know as well.

That being said, generic service manuals can be had at most libraries for free or at a parts store for about 15 bucks.

I got great help.....pictures, directions and such from a Haynes auto manual.
I bought mine...approx. $15.00 where I live.
Also I found you can borrow it from our library!
I have an 1987 taurus......it covers Sable as well.....1986-1995.
I`m also in the process of replacing my water pump. It was going well....Haynes manual showed me all the tricks....but I broke a bolt.
Caution....be careful with those bolts......now I`m in trouble.
Good Luck to you.

True on the library.

But most Haynes manuals are woefully generic and will frustrate the average DIYer because steps are left out that are ASSUMED to be known by the installer. Many times they are not .

I recommend a factory manual or a yearly alldata.com subscription. Much better information and more accurate too.

Well worth the greenbacks.

Thanks for all the help. Hubby did it quite well without incident.
Well except for all the antifreeze that spilled.
