Question about 1996 Ford Contour
First thing you need to do is verify voltage do you have 12 volts at the battery? check your connections for your ground, also BATTERY TERMINALS double check them for loose fittings on the battery itself, and starter side, as well as your ground at the motor and at the body, Next step is to pull spark plugs and install inline spark detector,turn over and watch for light about 5 dollars at parts store. now you've eliminated fouled plugs, next buy a haynes manual or chiltons manual asually around twenty dollars this should have specs on what your ignition coil should be(ohms ratings), or they may test it for free at autozone or advance (however they can usually only test primary ratings)if this checks out i would proceed to the igniton control module(wich either store i've previously mentioned can test), these are fairly typical problem children of ford. This should take you reverse order back to your ecm and should find your problem. Oh bye the way i looked up your coil it is around 25 dollars on e-bay control modules are usually around 30 dollars. Hope this helps chris
