1997 ford contour will not start after replacing transmission why not?

Check your electrical connections especially the throttle position sensor, and the cam position sensor. One other thing to look at is the two coolant temp sensors. One on the front is for the dash gauge, the other on top is for the PCM reference. Ie cold engine, full choke. Warm engine, lean open choke. if not connected it's like trying to start a cold engine without a choke closed, and you end up flooding the cylinders with gas washing them out and killing compression. also ensure you connected the idle air control valve electrical connection. It's located under the throttle body at the back of the engine towards the top. hard to get to but it won't allow the engine to start or idle.

It starts and runs good when cold but after it warms up it dies and sometimes wont run right until cold again

Try putting your car in neutral, and then start it. Once it starts, put it in park, once you hear the engine start to choke out, rev the gas pedal, and see if it stays on. I used to have this problem with my '95 Ford Contour, I forget what the problem was. But, until you solve it, this may be your only solution lol. Maybe EGR Valve could be bad?

1990 full size blazer starts fine idles then dies

sounds real easy either a bad idle air control solenoid or more likley a blown throttle body gasket. to test fro a blown gasket, with engine running and cool spray carb cleaner or brake cleaner around base of tb were it bolts to intake. when it hits the bad area, should idle down and be normal for a second or 2. iac is possible,try this first since its so common and let me know

Your transmission torque converter lock up clutch is not unlocking, that kills the engine and is the cause of the OD light flashing.
