The V-6 cars spin the alternator at very high rpms, and it is a surprisingly powerful unit at 130 amps. By comparison, a 1988 Grand Marquis with full power options and automatic load leveling utilized a 100 amp unit.
Most commonly a bad ground from the battery to the top of the engine. Some models from 96 and 97 had problems with the insulation on the wiring deteriorating & falling away causing short circuits.
Many aftermarket alternators are not built/rebuilt to the specifications required for the Contour/Mystique/Cougar and you may go through several before finding one worthy of the task. Try a different brand.
Update: I've concluded that MotorCraft alternators are the best option here. They're pricey, but doing this job only once is worth the extra cabbage.
I would recommend to check for a short on the wiring to the alternator. Check the fuse box.
RESISTANCE-Make sure the GROUNDS are Good.Engine Grounds-Frame Grounds-Body Grounds-Battery Grounds Be careful of cheap rebuilt alternators. Sometimes cheaper is not better.
have you checked the fuses?
broken motor mount
People with diabetes often have a burning sensation in their extremities especially their legs and feet.
If you would like information on high output alternators I would suggest looking at the following very informative websites: www.qualitypowerauto.com and www.knowledgesonicelectronics.com.
Since the alternators are in parallel, the resultant voltage should be the same as either alternator - exactly as it would be if two batteries are connected in parallel. Voltage remains the same but current capacity is doubled. I would recommend connecting the alternators through a network that will balance the load between them.
Probably you are getting inferior alternators. If this model has an external voltage regulator, then possibly it is the voltage regulator instead of the alternator that is causing the problem. As a mechanic, there is nothing in the car that would cause the alternator to be ruined. Alternatively, some people suggest that if your battery is weak, this causes a strain on the alternators, but in 40 years of wrenching I believe that is not the case.
got the same exact problem.
Aids....or you pulled a muscle
what would cause your tongue and back of throat to have a burning sensation
nebula is collection of galaxies, it don't burn but the star or the sun would be burning
A potential cause of bulbs burning out in cars is a dirty or corroded bulb socket, or a bad wire connections at the socket.
This would depend on your nose. A bad CMP sensor may cause improper burning of the fuel and can give a smell out the tailpipe. Will the CMP smell? Never. A Ford camshaft syncronizer will squeek and could cause a metallic burning smell.
The starter is burning.
Your car may be on fire.

there is probably a sensor on the transmission that is either gone bad or become loose.

One contour can not cross another because a contour is one exact elevation; if it crossed another contour it would show that it is higher than the second contour on one side, but lower on the other side.
The word contour does not exactly have an antonym, however, it you use contoured, the antonym would be flat.
