SOURCE: 97 Ford Contour GL 2.5 L V6. Stalling out. Auto

They are not only for improving milleage, but play a crusual key for ECM to give out how much fuel to mix with air to have proper combustion hence not stalling when accelerated. But Oxygen sensors are expensive and even you have them replaced , this is not going to solve your problem since gum has built up at your throttle valve over the years. Have another shop to clean your throttle body first. Make an appointment so you can be there to see how dirty the throttle body is and also to make sure they actually take out the part to clean, not just spraying cleaner to the Air mass flow flap valve. After the throttle body cleaned, take off the battery cables for 30 minutes to reset the ECM to its default state so it doesn't use data from your current state. You will see an improvement. Afterward, the problem is still existing then Have Auto Zone store diagnose free for O2 problem before replacing them. Cheers.

2000 contour, rplaced fuel pump(3 times) car starts will go to 10-15mph then stalls to idle. any ideas


How many miles are on the car. It sounds like it is going into limp home mode in the computer. If that is the problem you may have a catalytic converter that is plugged or nearly plugged. If the cat gets plugged if won't allow fuel to be pulled into the engine and causes it to stall. Have you ran a scanner on the car to check for trouble codes.

My son has a 1998 Ford Contour and after his last fill up it started stalling. Did he use the wrong octane or is there a bigger problem?


Could be another problem. It`s just a coinicidince that the car started stalling. You could by gas at any gas station for this car. It could be cheap gas from a no name station, and the octane level would`t matter. I would be more concerned if he was driving a high end car like Jaguar, Mercedes, Porshe. etc.etc. -where you need a cetain level of octane. Have your son`s car checked by your service shop to narrow down the stalling problem..
Possible stalling conditions--lack of tune-up, vacuum leaks,ignition problems, fuel pressure. These are possible problems just to name a few. Have the car diagnosed..

97 ford contour V-6 cranks won't run


Open the air cleaner and look down into the intake while someone else is turning over the car. Is their gas or gasoline vapor being put into the engine or not?   If yes then I take a philips screw driver on the end of a spark plug wire while some one else is turning it over, to see if it has any spark.  I woudl gues 90% or all non start but cranking problems are going to be in one of these two areas.

If you throw booser cables on does the car start ? If it doesnt then its time to replace your starter and relay.
