Most common cause is a air leak into the fuel system at the filter bleed valve.

the sound is comming from your intake
has your air filter housing been modified in any way or is it missing a part?
what you are hearing is the idle air control solonoid opening up and allowing alot of air into the engine .

SOURCE: busted timing belt

If you are in a town where there is an Auto Zone or an
O'Reilly's, you can ask them to print you out the view that you are needing. Or you might try to get it from the place where you originally bought the new belt at.
I know from personal experience that Auto Zone is good about printing you out the view.

SOURCE: 1999 ford contour that wont crank

You mean wont CRANK or CRANKS but WONT RUN???? 4 cyl or V6 auto or manual trans????????? The 8th VIN digit would be most helpful as there are 4 different engines for that car. Its really cheaper to check items before you replace them. The starter should have a smaller BLACK wire that should have power on it when trying to crank the car. You say it wont crank, then check the neutral switch on the trans. Try putting it in neutral to start it. If it has a manual trans, the clutch switch on the pedal may be bad. There is a starter relay in the fuse box under the hood that powers the starter, does it click if you turn the key to start? if it does then the relay is at least trying to work, but doenst mean the contacts inside are good, If it does not click, then the neutral switch may be bad.Check the BLACK/YELLOW wire at the trans switch, if it has power on it, the switch may be bad, ground that (Black/Yellow)wire and see if it cranks. I dont know if there are any other relays in the fuse box that you can swap for the starter relay for test purposes.

1995 Ford contour SE V6. In the shop replacing engine,


The most common failed start is ignition spark, usually forgot to hook it up, this is controlled by the ignition module and the crank sensor, second most common is fuel. Has your mechanic fixed it yet? if not check the three basics- air-fuel-fire, one them is missing.
