Answers from the Automotive Experts

Jessica Howe, Automotive Expert & Coach at


The 2000 Mercury Sables came with two different engine types. One is a 3.0-liter V6 with 12 valves controlled by a single camshaft. The other engine types is a 3.0-liter V6 with 24 valves and dual overhead camshafts. If you own the model with the dual camshafts, then your engine will have a "24V" written on it somewhere, and you can also find that detailed information in your owner's manual. Good luck!
