Question about 2000 Ford Contour

2000 ford contour

So i don't know how to explain this problem really but i will explain it as best as i can.when i am driving my car it doesn't matter if i am accelerating or not just as long as i am in drive it kind of makes a spuddering sound .. . it gets worse the longer you drive it and it usual wont do it unless i am going 30 mph or greater but lately it has even done it while i am at a stop sign or stopped at stop light but when I put the car in neutral it doesn't make the sound it almost sounds as if the engine is misfiring?

Try this: take a thick rag and plug the exhaust with the car idling(don't worry you won't hurt anything) does the noise change? if it does, you have an exhaust leak. otherwise let me know.

LOST ONLY KEY FOR FORD 2000 CONTOUR V6. NEED KEY CODE. LOCAL FOR DEALERSHIP ONLY GOES BACK 10 YEARS, EVEN WITH PROVIDING VIN # and title.


There's a way to install a magnet in the column at the ignition to allow the key to work. My son did it on a 2000 Ford Focus and it worked fine. I do not know the details but surely a search would turn it up? don-ohio (:^)

2000 Ford Contour, the check engine light is back on and the cooling fans are running constantly.


I would say you have some other problem .I really don't think you could get even two bad sensors . I could tell you better if i knew the codes . high and a low voltage codes are referring to a circuit problem usually . This sounds like a problem with a relay contacts stuck closed .Thier are two relays

What all should I replace while replacing the water Pump on my 2000 ford contour


That's a very good question...but I gather that this car has been taken care of and should be in very good shape and with economy the way it is..I see no reason to get a new car...My advice..Just get the water pump replaced and happy motoring....and don't let any mechanic try to sell you something that you don't need...I'm sure that you've heard the expression"If it ain't broke...don't fix it."..I hope this was heplful...PEACE.....

The gear shift indicator lights on my 2000 Ford Contour (V6) are very dim. Is there a bulb or led that can be replaced to brighted this up? Where is that accessed? thanks,


yes its kind of a pain to change but there is a single t10 style wedge bulb 194 or 168

go to the auto parts store and buy a pack of 168 silver-star bulbs (they are $$$ like 10 bucks) but will be the best solution for brightness...

don't waste your money on led's like me they fail a lot due to overheating or make bad connections because they are in a plastic base

My car is a ford contour 2000 SE please i need help


You may experience a misfire if your car is noisy on gas,and is shaking on accelaration .
you might have to check on the injection system :injectors and injector wires. also a dirty MAF and a bad spark plug may cause it .
you may wanna get the code from a OBD2 device to know where the malfunction is .
good luck !

Waterpump belt


you have a serpentine belt, which is one belt drives all, so the routing of this belt is very specific also it matters whether or not you have a/c. Locate your belt routing chart under the hood before beginning. There is a tensioner pulley mounted on a spring arm, the spring arm should have a square drive hole in it, either 3/8" or 1/2" drive size you will need a ratchet of the proper size to insert into this square hole. Using the ratchet move the tension arm (away from belt) to loosen the belt and remove, route and install the new belt and move tensioner the same way place the belt over it and release. Hope this helps, let me know
