Hope this might help. I was having trouble with the trunk leaking on my chevy colbolt because of a sliver crack on the tail light, plus I also learned the colbolt have a drain hole under the trunk.

Could be a faulty gasket for the trunk lid, a seal around one of the tail lights, or a problem with the back window.
If you can put something in the trunk to pinpoint the source of the leak it would help. Or put a battery powered light in the trunk and look at night for the gap on the outside.

The trunk has water inside and now the car will not start. Is there a drain plug?

some cars do have drain plugs. Sometimes the plug is painted the same color as the car or the interior of your trunk body. Lift the trunk carpet you may find a black rubber plug. After that is done check on your trunk seal for separation. Maybe the adhesive on the foam rubber has failed and is allowing water to seep in under the foam rubber or maybe there is a cut in the material or maybe your trunk lid is just a tad bent. Check the contour lines of your trunk lid with the trunk closed and search for any gaps of foam to rubber. If you order a new seal you can put it on yourself. It's easy! check out this video to learn How To Find Water Leaks In Your Trunk:

Well my 1995 ford contour 2.0 gl 5 speed is blowing out water areound my Expansion Tank Cap and it over heats after it dose that what would you suggest i know its not the theromostst please help thank

Probably a leaking head gasket, allowing pressure from a cylinder to get into the cooling system. The only cure is to replace the head gasket - radiator stop-leak compounds will NOT work!

How to remove tail light lens on 2000 ford contour SE

Open the trunk. Pull back the trunk lining where it covers the tail light access inside the quarter panel. Remove the lamp sockets for the turn/stop and backup lights, and remove the screws that hold the lens in place. The lens will then pull out from the quarter panel. Installation is the reverse: make sure the rubber gasket is in place properly.

1999 ford expedition. smells like antifreeze in the cab, worse when I turn on air conditioner ?? I saw a leak today at the firewall. I drove it about 5 miles stopped the car and it hasnt leaked...

This is likely the heater core leaking. Once it turns cold you will have foggy windows too.

When the heat is turned off the antifreeze stops flowing through the heater core, once it was all gone the leak would have stopped until the next time you need heat.

Not getting fuel

Turn the key on to the on position and not start. Listen very closely. You should hear the fuel pump run for about 2 seconds. If not then the fuel pump is probably bad. I think that the Contour has a place in the trunk to access the fuel pump. If not, you have to drop the fuel tank.

95 ford contour idles low and shuts off when slowing or stopping. i also think i have a coolant leak. i am scared that a mechanic will screw me over because i don't know anything about cars. please help!

You're probably gonna have to get your timing belt replaced and while you're at it get your water pump replaced. Also tell them to check your cooling system for leaks.

Trunk lamp

Check the trunk door lock sensor, when it is defective the lamp will stay on.

If it is not that, then it is simply a contact in the trunk light wirings.

If you cannot fix it, then remove the bulb, if the light stays on for a long time when car is parked (at least a matter of days), you can find a flat battery when you try to restart.
