SOURCE: 99 ford contour 2.0 dohc timing belt

Engine Timing Belt/Chain Illustration
Figure 1
fm1069500554000x.pngBefore installing tool. If the belt broke turn the engine so the #1 piston is half way up. This way you will not bend the valves while turning cams. If you feel that the cams are very hard to turn or stops turning then turn crank by hand to lower piston away from valve. Then turn the cams clockwise or counter clockwise slow one at a time too the proper slot position for the tool to fit. Once the cam marks are lined up bring the #1 piston to its TDC.

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.

Replacing throttle position sensor location ford contour 2.0

You only replace parts that you know how they work &
how to test them

If you do no testing to find a failed part,your replacing a
perfectly good one

OBD Codes have nothing to do with parts replacement

Google your vehicle & look at a picture of the sensor

All tps sensors are on the throttle body

Where does the rubber hose by the transmission range sensor go to on a 99 ford contour 4 cycl

There is a small vent hose that mounts on a black plastic clip by the battery hold down bolt/ nut., if not properly installed fluid will leak from the transmission, while driving the vehicle, we had a new battery installed and the little hose dropped down toward motor.

What is bank 1 sensors location on ford contour

Bank 1 is where the number one cylinder/spark plug is located. If this is a 4 cylinder engine, number 1 is at the front of the motor and bank 1 is irrelevant and the number 1 sensor would be the one screwed into the exhaust manifold attatched to the cylinder head. If it is a 6 cylinder than number one is on the side closest to the radiator, and at the back of the engine near the exhaust crossover. The number 1 sensor is going to be the one screwed into the exhaust manifold just outside the cylinder head.
