Engine Performance problem
1999 Ford Contour 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic

My 99 Ford Contour was having engine problems a while back. Battery light was on so we replaced the battery and problems continued with car dying and such. Ended up replacing the alternator, spark plugs, fuel filter, had oil changed and transmission flush.

Seemed like it was running pretty good for a month or so and now sometimes it either dies or doesnt turn over. It eventually starts after a couple tries, and runs great.

What can this be?
Do you
