I HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM WITH MY CONTOUR AND IT ENDED UP BEING THAT THE FUEL INJECTORS WERE LEAKING DOWN INTO MY CYLINDER THEREFOR "FLOODING IT OUT"
No. The chipped ignition key did not start until the 1998 model year and was only on the 6 cylinder Contour and Mystique. (I've got a '97 6 cylinder Contour that seems to have a chip in the key.)
Hesitation. Stumble. Backfire. Flooding. Hard cold start. Hard warm start. Poor idle. Poor mpg. Smell of fuel.
truck gas flooding
There are several reasons why a 1998 Ford Contour will not start. The car may not start if the battery is dead, the starter may need replaced, or the head gaskets are blown.
19th Novembe3r 2009!
hot wire it
Cylinder head valves. Try slightly thicker oil.
Normally, no. If they do start to smell then you have rotten eggs.
probably getting too much fuel and flooding
December 2010 to January 2011
ford 99 contour will not start, front wheel is in lock position. how do you fix the anti- lock system
A contour line is a drawing that is just an outline of an object, with no shading. I'm not sure if this answered your question, but it's a start.
You will smell, start to shed (skin), start iching, and you will look ugly because of the smell.
the Australian flood stared in December and is still flooding . 9 people have gone missing. 35 people have died
It began in the start of a new year
sounds like its flooding. does it do it all the time or only once?
It can vary, depending on climate and other conditions. Generally it will start to smell after 24 hours.
you start to smell a diaorhhea smell
Makeup can start to smell funny if it's old.
Thunderstorms are often followed by rain. So you have the lightning in the thunder that can start fires, and the rain that can cause flooding.
Its the cold start fuel sensor giving you troubles. Its flooding the engine with fuel.
maybe fuel injectors?
try the crank sensor
it would be easier to answer if one knew what was meant
