Sounds like from the brief description you gave that either your starter teeth or your flywheel teeth are shot

My 98 ford contour is making a clacking sound and smoke is coming from under the hood, what could this be?


To start with, the check engine light means there is a problem with the computer that controls the engine. You need to get it scanned to check for trouble codes. It is not telling you the engine is damaged.

As for the noise, it could be a long list of things including pistons and valves in the engine.
A mechanic can check for codes and evaluate the engine and then give you a report.

99 Ford Contour SE is making a grinding noise from the rear passengerside whealwell, as well as a lack of pressure at the brake peddal. Any Ideas would be appreciated.


Check the brake hose going the caliper or drum on that wheel, its probably leaking. That would explain the lack of pressure. Dont know whether your car has disc or drum brakes on the rear, could be either.
But if the hose is leaking, fluid will be all over the inner part of the wheel. And check your brake fluid to see if its low.

Or one of the springs in the drum could have broken or popped off.
That would explain the grinding noise. A broken spring is more likely since
you hear the grinding noise because the brake shoe would always be touching the drum
because the spring keeps the shoe from contacting the drum when the brakes are not being
pushed.

Take it back to the shop who did the work and make sure all the engine wire connectors are on and locked, also check the air inlet hoses to the engine for loose clamps
