Check the clutch for slipping. If you are in gear and the engine revs but you go nowhere then it is a safe bet the clutch is at fault. Check underneath that the slave cylinder is retracting fully into the cylinder. push on the arm to do this. f it is not it will be the clutch m/cyl that will be faulty. If everything is fine then the clutch assy.has failed and has to be replaced.

Need to remove clutch from air conditioner compressor


You are better off replacing the whole compressor.
The special tools required, and the risk of possible
damage to the compressor, along with the extra labor
involved, make a used or rebuilt unit the way to go.
This is how most repair shops resolve a bad a/c clutch problem. Hope I was helpful.

Ac clutch does not get power checked fuses and relays all look good. it will click if i jump power is there a known probleml. car sat for a year


Yep your Compressor clutch has gone bad.
You can either change the whole compressor, or just have the clutch changed on the compressor.
You are better off having the whole compressor changed; by the time you pay the labor to have it taken out, clutch changed, and reinstalled, you could have just paid for the new A/C compressor.

Go to your local auto parts and buy the spring release tool for the Ford a/c line. Not expensive, but you need this to release the spring lock on the lines.

OIL FILTER BLEW OFF OR MUSHROMED OUT


Replace the oil filter, fill crankcase with proper amount of oil, drive car away and pray to God it was just a defective oil filter.

How "old" was this oil filter and how long ago was it supposedly replaced? Does the SVT have an oil pressure gauge (I know my non-SVT contour does not) and did you notice anything on the gauge (super-high pressure) before the filter burst?

Unfortunately, the idiot light tells you there is "NO" oil pressure, which is the condition you encountered after the filter went south.

98 Ford Contour not charging


I dont know if yours is a 4 or 6 cyl. On the back of the motor by the firewall there is a 175 amp mega fuse inline on the positive cable comming from the battery. On the 4 cyl it is below the air box center of the back of the motor. On the 6 cyl, it is below the coil pack on the center back of the motor. Be sure to disconnect the negitave battery cable before you attempt this. There is a 3 inch long cover you pop off and you will see it. It takes a 10mm socket to unbolt it. Remove the fuse and ohm it out, if there is no continuity, you have a bad fuse, replace it. I have had 3 people replace their bats and alts ($350 in parts) just to find out it still had the problem. An $8 fuse. Good luck and hope this helps..
