1999 Ford Contour won't start when engine is cold

I have tried cleaning up battery cables and posts. I have also put in a new fuel filter not too long ago. I'm thinking it's something with the fuel. Anyone have an idea?

SOURCE: 2000 Ford Expedition wont start

On the engine there is a tube that supplies fuel to the fuel injectors, on that tube there is a valve, like a metal tire valve, this is the fuel pressure test port, you will need a special guage to check the pressure that screws onto that valve, Kragen and other parts stores sell this test kit, it is very inexpensive, about $20.00, but cheaper than having a shop do it for you, if you do the test and you have no pressure while cranking the engine then your fuel pump is bad, the pump is in the gas tank, a big job and dangerous due to chance of fire if you are not cautious.

SOURCE: 2001 ford focus will not start. The engine will

I will try to help you. You are correct about the starting fluid, if it has fire starting fluid should do something. So the problem must be either no fire to the plugs or the timing belt is broke.

Check to see if the plugs have spark. If they do not, then get with the Autoparts store and ask if your car needs a Ignition relay to run. Then ask if your car takes a rubber timing belt. If your car does not have a rubber timing belt try the Ignition relay. If you do have a rubber belt check behind the shield in front of the engine to see if the timing belt is broke.

The timing belt is different than the serpetine belt that drives the pulleys. Cars with rubber timing belts have both belts. Should your timing belt be broken it is not an expensive repair. But you will need to details on replacement of that part.

My 1999 Ford Contour sport has been sitting for a couple years, I'm not much of a car guy so I don't really know how to start it up now. It wont start, and I need help, Thanks


If you think the pistons are rusted Put a socket on the front of the front of the crank shaft and try turning the socket with a 2ft breaker in a clockwise direction.If engine rotates start checking electrical connections at the battery.Dont just check positive connections check ground connections at frame; starter ,engine and body also.

Have you ever heard of testing before replacing parts ? Fuel pressure an flow tesing , testing the electrical circuit for the fuel pump , amp draw testing , voltage drop testing etc... Thier are no magical fixes in auto repair . No spark ! check B+ voltage an ground circuits for the ignition system , Ignition System Designs Operation and Testing an SD Premium video

I can't get my land rover discovery 1999 to start!I go to turn it over and it acts like it wants to start but it won't.I have replaced the fuel filter,the fuel pump,put a new battery in it,and a start


Sounds like a dead short between the starter and the battery. Check the cables under the hood for anything that has rubbed through.

However, it is more likely to be the control line to the solenoid that is shorting out. Trace that line from the solenoid up to the firewall first, than drop the panel under the steering wheel and look there. Use a multimeter set to ohms with one probe on a solid part of the frame and the other probe to the solenoid wire - there should NOT be any reading. If there is, the wire is earthing out

My ford taurus won't start put on new starter and new batterie


New starter and batttery means that the engine must crank well but if the FUEL and SPARK settings are not correct or faulty then the engine will not start.
So please have the fuel checked, from the fuel filter , pump and pressure of fuel.
Check for the spark intensity and timing. If any of the above is absent or is not to the level desired then it must be checked.
