Question about Ford Contour
Check the radiator itself by feeling the radiator while hot, being careful not to burn yourself feel from the top to the bottom while going side to side, it should be hot at the top and generally cooler as you go down with out any cold spots, if you have a cold spot the radiator is plugged and will need to be cleaned or replaced, also make sure that the radiator fan runs with engine temperature, not just when you turn on the a/c. If this all checks well, look at the exhaust pipe, if you have antifreeze in the radiator see if there is white smoke coming out the tailpipe when engine is hot, if so the cylinder head gasket may be blown out. Hope this helps, let me know.
