It is in the fuel line, under the chassis, under the front drivers door (in a 2000) and has 2 little clamps holding the hoses and a ring clamp holding it to the chassis. It will take you only 5 minutes to change and costs about $10. It will leak a little gas at first (1 cup) so keep your head away. A 12 year old can do this.On the 1999 models its located on the passenger side rear almost even with the tire.

It's best if you find your fuel shut off first, located on the left wall under the dashboard in a 2000 SE. There's a square hole in the plastic cover; stick your finger in there and push down on the red button and crank the car. Let it idle until it dies. It may take a few minutes. Repeat three times. That will relieve the pressure in the fuel lines, and you won't have so much gas squirt out when you disconnect the filter. When you're done, turn the fuel back on (you have to manually raise the red button you pushed down before) and before turning the car over turn the key to the on position, then off, then on. That'll prime the pump and re-pressurize the fuel lines.

My Contour didnt have a transmission filter. It was just one of those inline things that needed to be back flushed.

I think you will find that the 1995 Ford Contour does not have a Cabin Filter. To make sure look in your owne's manual, or, go to Advance Autos Parts and ask for one. If it indeed does have one, then purchase a Purolator Cabin Filter. The filter will come with detailed instructions on location and how to install it.

The automatic transmission filter is pretty much buried inside the transmission, and is not easily accessed.

The filter on the CD4E automatic trans is NOT user changeable - it's way up inside and doesn't require regular / routine changing.

you can change the fluid, but not the filter. drain the fluid from the drain plug on the bottom of the transmission and refill from the dipstick. the filter is only accessable by overhauling the transmission

The transmission plug on a 1995 Ford Contour is located on the side of the pan. It allows for fluid to be quickly drained during maintenance.

The fuel filter for a Ford Contour 4 cyl (Zetec 16 V) is located on the passenger side, in front of the rear tire. It's small and is attached by a metal band. See "Related Questions" below for more details on replacing the fuel filter - the procedures are the same.

Yes , a 1995 Ford Contour should have a heater core . It is used to warm the air ( if necessary ) that comes in to the passenger compartment of the vehicle
