If the engine won't turn over, clean the battery cables. If it will turnover but not start, findout if it needs fire or fuel to run then go from there.

Had same problem in my 2000 contour. The problem was with a bad wire on my fuel pump. Every time i turned a sharp corner car would stall. I replaced fuel pump and no probs since.

About a zillion things, one would be a bad fuel pump. If it will jump start and drive a few miles then die again replace your alternator.

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.

Notice the pattern around that contour line. Then determine the interval that the surrounding contour lines are increasing or decreasing by. Ex. 50 100 150 200, the contour interval would then be 50

The first thing I would check is your crankshaft position sensor

If there is a hole in the engine then something came out or tried to come out. If by chance the engine started and ran again it would run poorly and not for long. I would advise to have a mechanic determine what to do next, don't drive it.

Each contour line represents a different elevation. If two contour lines crossed, or touched, then the point where they cross or touch would be a point that has two different elevations, which would be pretty silly.

The wider the contour lines on a map, the gentler the slope.

you would fall down and die and then either time would never start again or it would start again because you died. If time started again, the people near you would just see you walking or talking and then just fall over dead. Imagination will ever inspire fantasy.

I would start off by checking any vaccum hoses for leaks.

nothing much really if you would like to do the heart event again then you would have to start the game again

If you can jump it and get it running again, drive it for a few miles and then it dies again, it is the alternator. Buy a new alternator and it will fix the problem assuming you do not have bad connections "wires" in your charging system "your alternator and your battery".

You may have activated security system if theft light flashing when key is turned, needs reset.
