Question about 1996 Ford Contour

Open Question

Hi. I have a high mileage 96 ford contour. drives very nice. but last week for the first time ever, after i was out driving for half hour, the engine suddenly reved (as if it slipped from gear) and then there the car shot forward as it made loud clunk noise. I was almost home and it did not do it again that day. next day i had only small errands in low speed limit areas and had no problems. i stopped and had transmission fluid changed. ran fine afterward. but today, again after half hour driving, it repeats the same rev, lunge clunk sequence. Ideas?

SOURCE: 96 Ford Taurus GL Revving problem when stop then go

Did you check the transmission fluid again. You could have a major leak. Or reving the car up so high it started to burn the clutches in your transmission, resulting in replacing the transmission. Always check the fluid. A few dollars for fluid is better than 1500 bucks for a new tranny

tell your mechanic to replace the fuel filter. This part is usually less than $10. It should be replaced aout every 50K miles.

Battery light on no powersteering on my 96 ford contour


Sounds like the serpentine accessory drive belt on the engine is either broken or has come off. It drives the alternator and power steering pump, as well as the air conditioning compressor and (depending on the engine) the engine coolant pump. Check the belt (it's on the right, or passenger, side of the engine, between the engine and the fender) and replace it if needed. Also, check all the pulleys that it gos over to make sure they aren't loose. There should be a diagram under the hood of your car that shows how the belt goes on.

It sounds more like the fuel pump to me, if you don't hear the pump when you turn the ignition to the on position, that's the problem, check to make sure the fuse and the fuel pump relay are still good before you change the pump.

1996 EXPLORER This TSB article is being republished in its entirety to include the 1995 4.6L Thunderbird/Cougar. ISSUE: After a 1-4 hour engine soak time, long crank times and/or long crank to start followed by a stall may occur on some vehicles. No further stalling or rough idle will occur after the engine is running. The long crank and/or stall may be due to the Idle Air Control (IAC) Valve sticking.

SERVICE PROCEDURE
  1. Perform normal diagnostics and correct any DTCs as required by referring to the appropriate year Powertrain Control/Emissions Diagnosis (PC/ED) Service Manual.

Coolant sensor may be the problem. It is located near the thermostat housing. It may be sticking between modes & not operating properly.Also make sure coolant is circulating in system.
