Question about 1998 Ford Contour
I have ford contour 98 model, it has mileage 104380 on it so far. It makes a lot of noise when i start the car and the rpm is way too high. I do not need to press the accelerator when in drive mode. It speeds really fast. the worst part is, when i change the gear, the car shakes and makes terrible noise. It has high rpm and high idle speed. Error codes in OBD2 are p1506, p0102 and p0122. I read about these problems but i dont know what do i really do about it. Hope to hear from you soon.
Check for a cracked or lose vaccumme line

The Idle Air Valve may be stuck. My Contour usually has a low idle problem. I have been tapping on the Idle Air Valve solenoid and sure enough the valve will unstick. A new valve goes for about $115 new.
