SOURCE: Can I switch a steering wheel and dash odometer with a 1998 Ford contour to a 1996 Ford contour?

No, sorry, the instrument cluster from 98 was different than the 96 model. 95-97 were similar. You will probably have better luck with the steering wheel, but be careful, it has to have the same options, ie: tilt or no tilt, cruise control, etc.

Adding water to a 1996 ford contour?

Check the level of the coolant in the reservoir at least once a month. Be sure to read and understand precautions when servicing your vehiclein this chapter.If the engine coolant has not been checked for a long period of time, the engine coolant reservoir may eventually empty. If this occurs, add engine coolant to the coolant reservoir. For more information refer toAdding engine coolantin this chapter.
Automotive fluids are not interchangeable; do not use engine coolant, antifreeze or windshield washer fluid outside its specified function and vehicle location.

Check page 169 from Ford-Contour-Owners-Manual for other details.

Hope helps (remember comment andf rated this).

Air bag light flashing and check engine is on 1998 ford contour is this factry default never been wrecked

no its not a defect you have a wiring problem and you should have it checked by a qualified mechanic.

You air bag will not work if that light is on. And the check engine light is a totally different issue, you will need to find out what code is making the light come on.

Any major parts store can give you that info for free.

no problem. If you are getting that low of voltage on a load then you might want to test the alternator as well to make sure it is running at capacity.
