try changing both timing gears

If the timing belt breaks on your 1999 Ford Contour will it cause engine damage?

most snapped timing belts will in most cases cause engine damage,the only exception would be a freewheeling engine were valve to piston contact would be minimal an interference type engine would cause damage.

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.)

Could crossed wires cause timing to jump?

No. A worn timing chain or belt would cause timing to jump.

Whenthe timing belt on a 1997 contour breaks does it bend the valves?

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.

Do the valves hit the pistons when the timing belt goes out on a 1995 ford contour?

I'm not a mechanic / technician but I would say ( no ) According to the Gates website ( they make timing belts etcetera ) the 2.0 liter four cylinder engine in a 1995 Ford Contour ( IS NOT AN INTERFERENCE ENGINE )

my best opinion is the timing belt has become loose after re doing the timing so many times. this means a new timing belt is needed

How do you reset jumped timing on 99 ford contour 2.0?

The only reason the timing would have jumped is if the belt has lost some teeth which it will do right before it breaks. The timing belt should be replaced before the car is driven or the motor started again. If the belt breaks while the engine is running, it can cause major damage to the head and possibly the block.

The only way your engine could "jump time" would be if there was a timing chain problem. Step one would be to remove the timing chain cover and see what's going on.
