Question about 1996 Ford Contour
My1996 ford contour runs for about 5-10 minuts then the electrical system shuts down as if the battery was dieing. then after the car sits for 5-10 minutes the power returns and car starts only to repeat scenario again. I have replaced both the batery and the alternator with no change to symptoms.
Ford has a technical service bulletin out that may fit your concern.
The charging system indicator may illuminate or vehicle may not start. This may be caused by a discharged battery due to a poor electrical connection at the generator terminal.

The generic method of bleeding air from the cooling system is to use a floor jack and raise the front of the car as high as possible, then fill the coolant recovery tank full and run the engine until it just starts to overheat, high end of normal zone on gauge, then shut the engine down and run cold water over the radiator core, this will self bleed the system and the coolant will be pulled from the recovery tank, repeat as necessary, never let the recovery tank run dry or more air will be pulled into the system.
