    my 2001 coutour just started this today and I've been trying to find answers. It actually happened to my dads ford focus a year ago and it didn't cause any problems, it just has been shaking ever since... I really want to find out whats wrong though as mine is right now going inbetween running right and shaking. You can hear the switch when it happens. I looked it up on google and everyones mentioning spark plugs, engine mount? or other things so I can't really isolate the exact problem, but it seems to be really common so the clear answer must be out there. Good luck!

Ok, my contour is actually a 2000... it was sold in 2001, heh, anyway, so I took it in today to be looked at and it turns out my front motor mount bolts are sheered. So basically it's totally loose and making the whole car shake because of it. So they quoted me $300 for it, but I think I'm going to give ford a call and see if they can fix it for free? It seems like it's a extremely common problem among ford coutours and other fords, so I mean, it's a defect yes? I'll get back to you after seeing how that goes, but it's worth a shot right? I mean, they make a defective mount, they need to replace it.

How can you say there is no loss of power when the car is not moving? You do have loss of power. What you have is a missfire in on of the cylinder. Diagnose the car and rectify. You could have injector or power problems.

My car is a ford contour 2000 SE please i need help


You may experience a misfire if your car is noisy on gas,and is shaking on accelaration .
you might have to check on the injection system :injectors and injector wires. also a dirty MAF and a bad spark plug may cause it .
you may wanna get the code from a OBD2 device to know where the malfunction is .
good luck !

if the nuetral safety was a problem the car would not start at all, sounds like you have a defective engine wiring harness, this is the most common cause of this i have seen while working for Ford.
