The ignition timing is non-adjustable. It is strickly electronic, and you cannot change it. The valve timing is controlled by the timing belt. If it has jumped time, you have to remove the timing cover to access the belt, replace it, and set it to the correct specifications.

Timing procedure 95 ford contour?

I don't have a Contour, but if it has a distributor, then you use a timing light and simply twist the distributor cap to change the timing. If it has coil packs, then it's all done electronically, and you can't adjust it. If your timing is still off, you have a sensor somewhere feeding the ECU bad info. ====================================================== All of the Contour engines' ignition timing is controlled by the computer, and is not adjustable. If there were any sort of problem in this area, the computer would turn on the "Check Engine" light and store an error code.

Can the timing being a slight bit off make a 95 ford contour run rough?

The ignition timing on Contour engines is controlled by the computer, and is not adjustable. However, if you're talking about the 4-cylinder 2.0 liter, it uses a timing belt for the cams, and if it is worn and slips a tooth, it would cause some real problems. (The 2.5 liter V6 isn't subject to this, as it uses a timing chain for the cams.)
