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.
The 2.5 litre V6 engine in a 1995 Ford Contour doesn't have a timing belt , it uses ( 2 ) timing CHAINS
timing is off check it
No the head lights are designed different from 95-97 to 98-00.
It's a FORD Contour.
Yes, there's a special tool that is inserted into the crankshaft during this procedure. See http://www.etoolcart.com/browseproducts/Ford-Cam-Positioning-Crankshaft-TDC-Timing-Pin.HTML If he forgot to remove the tool before he started the engine, it will do damage to the crankshaft.
96 ford contour blows fuse link in reverse
No, 1997 only fits 1997. Go to car-part.com.
The neutral safety switch on a 95 ford contour is on the drivers side of the transmission. It is a black box where the shift linkage connects.
at what milage should the timing chain be replaced on a 95 ford aerostar
i put timing sensor on car chand water pump and it turning but want crank is it easy to ben a valve
I had the same question for a 96 contour. found the answer by calling my local ford dealer parts dept and asking them if it was an interference or non interference engine.
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.)

Ford stopped using carburators sometime in the early to mid 80's. The 95 fords were all fuel injected, no carb required.
It could be your EGR valve.
The Inertia Switch Reset button on a 95 Ford Contour is located on the drivers side right behind the hood release. You might have to remove the plastic cover.
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.
From what I've seen on the web and in my Haynes manual (I do Own a 95 Contour, 4-banger) The Zetec engine is a non-interference engine. Meaning you won't wreck the engine's head if the timing belt goes... But, just to be on the safe side, have it replaced. When they had to do my water pump (driven by the timing belt), I had them change the belt, along with the tensioner pulley, just to be on the safe side.
I assume you meant 95 Ford Contour. There is no bleeding when replacing antifreese. Just fill the radiator recovery tank as there is no radiator cap on these vehicles.
To set the ignition timing on a Ford Probe GT 95 with an MX engine, remove the two 12 mm head bolts holding the distributor in place. Then rotate the distributor to set the ignition timing.
