Check the timing belt. it may have slipped a cog/ also check the spark plugs for colour and fuel on them from trying to start the engine.

Have a 1997 ford contour 2.0 reg fuel will not start normaly have to hold pedal to floor and it tries to start but dies right away has fire to all plugs had blown fuel pump fuse replace it also had bad...


Ok, this may help...
Two things to check, first, if it starts with the pedal depressed, but doesn't start with it released and in "Idle Position", then you have an issue with the "Idle Air control servo" which is located in the back of the engine under the Intake manifold.

Second, if it tries to start, kinda wants too..., then you may have a bad "Coolant Temp Sensor". This car has 2 of them. One is located in front of and below the thermostat housing above the transmission near the radiator. This one has a single wire to it and only gives the readings to the coolant temp guage.
The other one, which is the sensor for the engine control computer actually tells the computer to either run " warm lean", or "full rich cold", kind of like using a choke on an older car. The comon problem with these is they will read full warm thus leaning out the mix and when cold your car won't start very easily.
I don't remember where the other sensor is located but you can check your haynes manual to find out.
Also, important note here, make sure your coolant is full up. If not, the coolant sensors will not be exposed to the coolant and will not read correctly.

Hope this helps...

1997 ford contour


hold pedal to floor and it tries to start ! Not sure if your vehicle has clear flood mode , Most vehicle have clear flood mode strategy programmed in the ECU , PCM ,ECM .when you hold the accelerator pedal to the floor the engine computer cuts down on the injector on time to clear a flooded engine .
Fuel pressure regulator problem ,maybe ! You say there was a blown fuel pump fuse an you replaced it ? Fuse's don't blow for no reason ? Fuel pump bad , short , too much current !
Disconnect the mass air flow sensor an see if it starts !

I need the location of the o2 sensors on a 1997 ford contour gl 4-121 2.0 dohc


Ford contour has 4 O2 sensors, one under the coil pack between the engine and firewall (bank 1, sensor 1 and it's a pain to reach), one in front between the radiator and engine and two accessible from underneath.

99 saturn will carnk but won't start


try cranking engine while holding gas pedal to the floor, this turns off the fuel injectors to clear excess fuel from cyls. eng my just be flooded. may need to crank for a long time. if engine starts do not let off gas until you are sure eng will run on its own.

97 ford contour V-6 cranks won't run


Open the air cleaner and look down into the intake while someone else is turning over the car. Is their gas or gasoline vapor being put into the engine or not?   If yes then I take a philips screw driver on the end of a spark plug wire while some one else is turning it over, to see if it has any spark.  I woudl gues 90% or all non start but cranking problems are going to be in one of these two areas.
