Question about Ford Contour

1 Answer

We went to Denny's and when we left we tried to start the 1996 Ford Contour GL and it didn't start but made a clicking noise and the windshield wipers along with the speedometer went crazy. Is there anyone who knows where the starter is located ( if it is even the starter) or a quick fix to this problem, as we are still at Denny's. Thanks

Someone will need to figure out if you are lacking fuel to the injectors, spark to the plugs, or if you have a mechanical problem with the engine such as a faulty timing belt.

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).
