Question about 1997 Ford Contour
I just had a rebuilt transmission put in. It started after practically having to flood the engine. Then let it sit for a while and now it will not start at all. Please help.
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.
