1999 Ford Contour was running sluggish No CEL came on alternator light did come on. Replaced the Battery and the Alternator then the car would start and run fine but after a few moments would stall out. Took car to shop and they replaced plugs and wires. Car is still stalling out. Hooked up pressure gauge to fuel rail and pressure starts fine but after a few moments loses all pressure. Shop can not figure out whats wrong any ideas?

Injector and fuel pressure regulator could be leaking dropping it-

Take it back to the shop and have them check it for you

Went to the shop and they claim that the fuel pressure regulator was checked along with all the vacuum lines?

I dont know if this helps at all but I just drove the car home from the shop and the car drives fine in 2 gear. It does have an automatic transmission and only stalls out in park and drive?
