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.)

How can you set timing on 95 contour?

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.

Do the valves on a Ford Contour get messed up when the timing belt breaks?

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.
