Re: heat don't workin 1998 for contour
Sounds as if your heat vent door is hanging up or blocked. When the car is completely warmed up and the heater is on, feel around under the dash near the heater system to see if you can feel any warm or hot air coming out.

With out hearing the noise it is hard to say but it could be a wheel bearing but most of the time a bearing will hum, this could be a bad cv axle or a brake brake hitting the bracket, try to drive the car and hit the brake a little and see if the clicking goes away, if it does then i would say it is in the brakes. if it does not then have the cv axle checked.
Rough idleing, especialy when the air condition is on, is really quite normal for old cars. I drive a 96 corolla and when the airconditioner is turned on, the car will make a deep whining noise. It should stop when shifted into drive(automatic) or gear(manual) in most cases, it is not a serious problem. However, if you feel the idle is too rough, i would recommend fuel additives designed for highmilage cars. I use fuel injector cleaner. after many uses, my rough idle ended. If after trying this, you find the idle to still be to high or rough, have a talk with your local mechanic. Hope this helps
This sounding like an Idler bearing problem, Sounds like the idler bearing that supports your belt is either loose or needs replading. I say this because when you get the RPMs up on the motor the noise should almost disappear?
i have a broken down ford contour 1998 i dont know if it will help but when you replace the bearings you have to replace both at the same time or it will end up making the same noise again. go to the parts store, and get TWO bearings. replace them and it should fix the problem.
