1999 Ford Contour Repair Question
1999 Ford Contour stops running
1999 Ford Contour 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic
Car engine quit running while driving and then starts again. Will turn over all day long but only starts sometimes. Could it be the electronic pickup in the distributer.
Next time it refuses to start do below to find out what's causing it between fuel and spark
Get a helper disconnect a sparkplug wire or 2 and ground it to the engine at least 3/16 away from ground -have helper crank engine over-do you have a snapping blue spark? If so-you have a fuel related problem, check the fuel pressure to rule out the fuel filter/fuel pump/pressure regulator and listen to the injector/s are they pulsing or hook up a noid light. No snapping blue spark continue to troubleshoot the ignition system-power input to the coil/coil packs,coil's resistances,distributor pick-up coil, ignition control module, cam and crank sensors and computer Note: If it doesn't apply disregard it.
