When im driving my 2000 ford contour 2.5 se after drining 15 minutes about on 55 and 65 mph the car starts jerking and rpm goes up and down and when i drive slow and stop the car rpm goes back to normal.


You might have a bad throttle position sensor that's going bad.You didn't say if you had a check engine light that's on or not.If there is then I would recommend that you have your local auto parts store retrieve the codes and and that will give you a better idea as to what the problem could be.Without actually being able to completely inspect all the necessary systems I would only be making a guess according the information that you provided to me.It sounds like a bad throttle position sensor

It sounds more like the fuel pump to me, if you don't hear the pump when you turn the ignition to the on position, that's the problem, check to make sure the fuse and the fuel pump relay are still good before you change the pump.

My 2000 ford contour wont start. Engine cranks, but seems no spark. I checked plugs and coil. Fuel pump kicks on and shuts off after primed. It just got harder and harder to start, finally it wont start.


Have you changed the fuel filter.

Your pump may be priming but the pressure could be against a clogged filter.

You might want to check the fuel pressur at the rail.
It might be a fuel pressure regulator problem
