Sounds like your spending alot for this problem.....if this problem is only one cylinder then changing the fuel pump won't fix it...try removing the plug wire to each cylinder one at a time while running and monitor the RPM drop for each cylinder, they should be EVEN....If not thats the bad this point you need to check the cylinder compression in each cylinder...they should be within 75>80% of the highest reading..if its lower you have mechanical problem..(valves/piston/etc)...if good compression then your problem is fuel/electrical..this requires testers if you got them great.... if not this point I suggest take it to a dealer/shop to save you any more undue parts cost...hope this helps you..GL

2000 Expedition with 4.6L runs rough for a while

Sounds like a cold start problem from the description. You should check the coolant sensor circuit and the idle air control motor. Make sure the coolant level is full or the coolant sensor will give a false reading. Check the idle air motor and throttle plate for varnish and sludge and clean with a carburetor cleaner listed as oxygen sensor safe. Other checks should include condition of filters, plugs, wires and vacuum lines and line routing. If you have a scan tool, the data stream would be the fastest and easiest way to check the sensor circuits.

I have a 2000 hyundai grandeurmy car idle rough, had duel injecters cleaned but it's still the same. now its sluggish when you take off and they say its a problem with a one cylinder is not working they...

If it is not firing on one cylinder, check and eventually replace distributor rotor, or electronic injection module.
Check also for camshaft problems.

I have a 95 ford contour can't get any spark . changed the spark plugs, fuel pump, and fuel filter, and air filter.

I'd suggest getting a chilton or Haynes book for your car first. Very handy! If no spark, you can test the coil with an ohmmeter, and test wires to it. Another possibility is wires to crankshaft position sensor shorted, or sensor is bad. This sensor tells computer when to fire, and if bad, you get no spark situation. Also check any fuses that have to do with ignition.

I have a 1998 Ford contour SVT and I pulled it into the garage last night and it will not start now. Any ideas??

the most probable cause is that the electric fuel pump has failed, to confirm this get a can of spray starting fluid and spray some into the air intake hose of the engine, if it starts u need a new fuel pump.

2000 sunfire, 2.2 litre, automatic tran., rough idle on startup for about 3 to 4 minutes till the temp gauge reads about 50 C. After that runs great for the whole day.

There is a short list of problems that can cause that.

Maintenance: spark plugs, plug wires, air filter, fuel filter.

mass airflow sensor could be dirty.

heater in the oxygen sensor could be failing

Try basic maintenance first. Any questions please reply back.

Our 2000 contour starts missing and dies. It will

Try running injector cleaner like Lucas injector cleaner through the fuel system and also check the fuel pressure regulator. If the fuel pressure regulator is bad or the vacuum hose has a leak, that's where the problem may be. The other to is to try and clean out your EGR valve. A dirty or stuck EGR valve will give you the problems your described, Remove the EGR valve and clean it out with carb cleaner and make sure that the valve is not seized and can move. Good luck and hope this helps. Keep me posted, be glad to get your car running 100% again.

Put on analyzer number 4 cycliner is missfiring

Replace the spark plugs and wire set and add fuel injector cleaner in the gas tank for the next three fill up's. If money is tight try swapping the spark plug wire with another wire and see if the missfire moves, but before you do that inspect the spark plug's condition. Remove the spark plug to see if it's fouled with carbon which is a run rich condition and if there was detonation the plugs will have a worn or damaged electrode. Keep me posted, be glad to help.
