My 2000 ford contour lopes at an idol, every battery I put in it ends up dead with no juice.

This sounds like a charging system problem as in no alternator output, has the charging system been tested for proper output under a load? Autozone and Advance auto do this test for free have it done and get back to us with the results.

Where is the speed sensor on a ford contour

(For Zetec 2.0L) Set parking brake, jack up car on front driver side. Remove Drivers side front wheel. Crawl under car by firewall. Look up on transmission (mid vehicle), you should see the bottom of the VSS as it screws into the top of the transmission - loosen VSS (turn 1/4 turn). Open hood, Disconnect neg cable from battery (safety first) remove 3 long bolts holding down air intake over throttlebody. Unclip air filter top cover. Disconnect MAF connector. Lift off entire top air assembly, disconnect IAT sensor from under intake tube by MAF and put whole assembly away. You need to remove the rest of the Airbox, close to the firewall is a rubber band O ring holding down airbox, unhook. Then Pull up on airbox. You need to pull hard, it is held on by pins that push through rubber donuts on each side of the box. When it comes off it'll make a huge pop and you'll swear you've broken something - you likely haven't. (It's super easy to put back, just push down - hard to remove though). With airbox off, you will see large wire harness, follow it back - as it reaches under the brake booster and throttlebody, you will see a small offshoot with a connector - that is the VSS connector. Even though it's fairly easy to see it's a PITA to unhook. One-handed shennanigans, and some cursing required. Some small hands or really long needle nose pliers would help. Be careful, don't mess up the harness/connector side. When it's disconencted, go back under car and unscrew VSS and pull up. Then install new VSS. Reconnect nrew VSS to harness connector - hard again but not as bad as disconnecting. Then put everthing back together in reverse

Got a 1999 ford contour had alternator rebuilt replaced spark started dieing while in idle..took it to shop and they replaced the cam and crankshaft long as the alternator wasnt...

It still sounds like the alternaror is putting out to many amps and more than 13.5 volts when hooked up but what you could do is to borrow one from someone else and try it if it runs ok then YOU NO THE ANSWER TO THAT

But let me know how you get on . Ron

What is the part number for the alternator

If your car is a 2.5l v6 duratech Then the altenator can be bought from dealer, or other supplier. Tips to change the alt can be found in the pages of this site under 1998 contour altenator. The original Motocraft altenators were built by Visteon Part #N7775 (AO7775)This is a 130 amp altenator. Have the diagnostic done in car before you change it. Also check the maxifuse which is located under the coil pack at the back of the engine. The removal is time consuming, but you will save money big time.
