The PCM is behind the passengers kick panel, but i recomend taking it to a ford dealer to have it installed, because it needs to be programed with a ford diagnostic computer.

SOURCE: how to replace spark plugs for 1999 ford contour

to replace spark plugs remove spark plug wire boots. use special sparkplug socket or else you can break the sparkplug. to remove turn ratchet counterclockwise remove all four one at a time, make sure that the sparkplug gap is correct. most plugs come the box it will do not overtigheten plug once it has fully seated give it a good snug....if you do one at a time you dont need to mark the spark plug wires. if you mix up the wires your car will back fire which could cause severe internal damage.

This could be either the crankshaft sensor or the temp sensor on the engine. IF you have a check engine light that is on, you can get the codes from it and see.

Can someone please tell me where to hook up a timing lite on my 1999 ford contour

The timing on Contours is not adjustable, as it is controlled by the Engine Control Module (ECM), the computer that controls and monitors the engine functions.

1999 ford contour se custom sport check engine light stays on recently had new alternator replaced and when i turn heat on it only runs on hi otherwise car is running ok will the check engine light go off...

Contour's are notorious for check engine lights. Mine has been on for years. The only way really to reset the CEL is to rent or buy a code reader and record the codes that are stored. Information on CEL codes is available on the internet. FYI the most common code for contour's are P0420 and P0421. These won't cause any driveability issues. As for your heater problem, your fan blower relay is toast

I have a 1999 Contour, it died while driving. Has power, no start

Most the time the engine dies while driving is due to a crankshaft sensor failure. When this fails, the engine can't be started since the ECM doesn't know the location of TDC to provide proper ignitions. Have a shop check out and replace this part then you are good to be back on the road. Good luck.
