Without seeing it here is my best answere, do you have the ability to pull codes if the cam and crank sensors are functioning properly ( no codes for them) i would then check the fuel pump fuse and relay . do you have fuel getting to the fuel rail . if u have a guage to check pressure at the fuel rail it should be above 30lbs , if you have no pressure and your fuses and relays are good then you have a pump problem provided you have not been in an accident , i believe that vehicle has a safety shutoff that might be located in the trunk .

Wont start replaced fuel pump, injectors working, spark is good, replaced computer, getting low compression reading, turns over sometimes but wont stay running


if compression is 100 psi or under you have internal failure of the motor and is why it is acting the way it is. could be head gaskets , valves or piston rings or even a crack somewhere in the compression camber. how much compression do you have on the all?

If the Contour does try to start when I spray the starter fluid but doesn't actually start then is it the fuel pump..


at least you know you are getting spark, you need to do a fuel pressure test and injector signal test to be sure, canyou hear the pump running??
