    Where are the timing marks on a 1998 ford contour lx zetec


    If you are refering to the timing marks for timing chain alignment then you will need a special tool that fits in the end of the camshafts on the drivers side of the engine. You can make a tool to align the 2 camshafts out of some flat stock. The crankshaft mark will be on the crankshaft gear and engine. There are no marks on the camshaft gears.

    I have a 1998 ford escort 1.6 16v zetec but cant set my timing how do i do it? help please! asap!


    you can't set timing on that engine. No distributor. Timing is controlled by computer. If it is throwing a timing retarded code, then your timing belt needs replaced because your cam to crank timing is off.

    Where is the fuel filter located on a 1997 contour gl


    Fuel filter replacement for the 1995-1997, 1998 Ford Contour (4 Cyl 'Zetec' 16V and 24v Duratech V6) Fuel filter is located under the passenger side of the car in front of the rear wheel. Time: 5-10 min Tool needed: One flat head screwdriver Replace this filter is fairly easy. First, have a replacment filter and absorbent material as this will spill some gas. Suggestion: Remove black caps from new fuel filter. Have those handy when removing old filter. You can use them to cap the gas that will flow out of the old fuel filter, thus saving you a small mess. Also, take a good look at how the old fuel filter looks attached. Replace the new fuel filter with the same side (IN-OUT) The fuel filter is attached via a simple screw cable. Unscrew the cable to loosen the fuel filter (It will not detach by itself). Give it enough slack to pull out once you are ready. Next ,using screwdriver, pop-off white plastic retaining clips. Remove front and rear fuel line. Replace with new filter. Connect fuel lines. Connect white retaining clips on both sides (There will be some play on the connection, but that's normal). Screw the screw cable so filter is connected firmly (Do not overtighten and make sure screw nut is visible so you can see it the next time you need to replace filter. Double check your connections. Turn the ignition to ON for 5 seconds - but do not turn the car on. This will allow the fuel pump to push gas through the filter. Turn ignition OFF. Check to see if there is leakage. If no, turn car's motor ON.
