Question about 1999 Ford Contour
Car won't start after a shut it off for 10 mins. or so. Cranks but won't start. Seems to be intermittent problem. (happened last week 1 time and after an hour or so it started. Fine all week - just happened again). What could be causing this? I have a full tank of gas and fuel pump switch did not pop.
Not likely a fuse those you can check
If a fuse blows you don't replace it only
to blow again,you find out why
Relays should last for 25 years & you can
switch them with other to check that
The fuel pump siezes mechanically or electrically
& that can go on for 6 months so check fuel pressure
at the motor with a gauge
Also there are at least 3 other tests that have to be done at
a repair shop with the correct tools

SOURCE: Car ran good for 30
I had the same problem took me a year to solve it. If its hot or very warm outside when it does it, it is your FUEL PUMP. It is going in and out. It will run good for about 30 mins than such down for about 20mins and if it is hot it will take longer to cool down.
