Doesn't look like anything, unless you have done the

How about going to a dealers parts dept & give them your VIN #
to find the part #,then buy on Amazon or Rock Auto

Doubt that switch has anything to do with OD

I need help! need to know where Oxygen sensor is located on a 2000 ford contour 2.0L 121CI L4 DOCH. Also what tools are needed to replace it?


The Contour has two 02 sensors...post cat and pre cat, which means 1 in front of the catalytic converter and 1 behind it. An oxygen sensor wrench is the best tool to use for replacing an oxygen sensor, it is slotted on the end and will slip over the wiring harness & is designed to work in tight quarters...A 7/8" or 22mm open end wrench can be used if you have room to get it on the sensor and still turn it, without busting your knuckles---Spray some WD-40 or Liquid Wrench on the old sensor and let it soak a couple of minutes, it helps.---Autozone has the 02 tool if you need to purchase one. Good luck, i hope this helps.

If the fluid is full, it's most likely time to replace the transmission. How many miles are on the car? If you keep driving it like that, you will find yourself on the side of the road soon.

It fill like the transmission on my 2000 ford countour is sliping. is their any way i can adjust it


Sorry, but you'll probably have to take it to a good trans shop. I assume yours is an automatic - if you don't have the special tools and knowledge to deal with these things, don't mess with the innards!

1996 ford contour transmission range sensor


Transmission range sensor and neutral safety switch are the same thing (when you go to buy the part). It's at the top of your transmission. You'll see the shifting cable connected to it. Here are the instructions for adjustment:
Shift Control Linkage
The transmission shift linkage adjustments must be performed in the order in which they appear.

Column Shift

Place transaxle range selector lever in (D) (OVERDRIVE) position or D (DRIVE) position on vehicles equipped with a transmission control switch (TCS). A weight of 1.4 kg (3 lb) should be hung on the transaxle range selector lever to ensure the lever is located firmly on the (D) (OVERDRIVE) or D (DRIVE) position on vehicles equipped with a transmission control switch (TCS) detent.

Loosen manual control lever-to-control cable retaining nut.

Move transaxle manual control lever to OVERDRIVE position or D (DRIVE) position on vehicles equipped with a transmission control switch (TCS), second detent from most rearward position.

Tighten retaining nut to 17-23 Nm (13-17 lb-ft). Check operation of transaxle in each transmission range position. Make sure that park mechanism and transmission range (TR) sensor are functioning properly.

Floor Shift

Position transaxle range selector lever in DRIVE position against rearward stop. The floor transaxle range selector lever must be held in the rearward position using a constant force of 1.4 kg (3 lb) while linkage is being adjusted.

Loosen manual control lever-to-control cable retaining nut.

Move transaxle manual control lever to DRIVE position, second detent from most rearward position.

Tighten retaining nut to 17-23 Nm (13-17 lb-ft).

Check operation of transaxle in each transmission range position. Make sure that park mechanism and transmission range (TR) sensor are functioning properly.



To take it off, it's a couple of retaining bolts and a wiring harness.

2000 Ford Contour Acceleration Probs between 40-55 mph


Transmission was initially misdiagnosed as being ok. The problem was the "range sensor", which showed up on the transmission shops diagnostic computer on a second look.

Replacement of the range sensor solved the problem. This was a $150.00 fix. Unfortunately a lot of other cash was spent because of the initial miss.
