You had a professional change the spark plugs in your 1999 Ford Contour now the timing is off and the dome light stays on how do you fix this?
While I won't say anything is absolutely impossible, I can't think of a plausible connection between these three items. How do you know the timing is off? Have you measured it? Is that your way of saying it's not running right? If so, what are the exact symptoms? If the dome light has a switch attached to it, make sure it's not in the "always on" position. If it doesn't have an integral switch, check the dash illumination dimmer switch -- many of them have a "dome light always on" position they click into at the full brightness end of their range. If that isn't the explanation, the next most likely thing is one of the door switches is faulty.
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…
Your question is too vague usually when someone says that their engine has jumped time that means that the timing chain has jumped on the timing sprockets. If that is the case you would need to change them. If the distributor is out of time to do it right you would need to have a timing light. You would need a repair manual for the specifications to fix both of them.
Answer to this depends upon which timing you want to change. 1. If you want to change the igition timing, this is done by loosening the distibutor. You will need a timing light. You can ususally get service manuals at the local library to give you the procedure. 2. If you want to change the cam timing, this will require you to remove the timing belt. If the cam timing has changed, it is likely…
if you know the proper timing for the engine, and it depends on the makeup of the eng. all 350's are not the same. you need a timing light. loosen the dist. hold down clamp,and with the eng. at an idle , shine the light at the timing mark over the harmonic balancer.if you have to change the timing, rotate the dist. very slowly ,and watch the timing marks with the timing light. when the…
this depend on the way where you want to place your design you have to design a timing circuit first.(u can use IC 555 ) after that according to your variable and expression give this output of timing circuit to LOGIC gates serially after every one minute the output of timing circuit will change and gates are also change their position and indicate traffic light.
My 1995 Ford Contour started hesitating after you would stop at a light and now it wont go over 40 and sounds like its stuck trying to accelerate?
unscrew the distrupittar cap and turn it till it's right, make sure you use a timing light, if you don't know what that is then please, do everyone a favor and have a professional do it. Actually, since you asked how to in the first place, have a professional do it and save yourself the potential the get hit with 80,000 volts, or getting you fingers chopped off from the fan.
What would cause the overdrive off light to flash and not change to overdrive on a 1999 Ford Contour LX?
Has your timing belt been changed? From what I understand, the car automatically turns on the light every 60,000 miles (the recommended interval between timing belt changes). I changed mine well after the light came on (it came on while the previous owner still had it) and the belt was long overdue. Also, when you do change it, you have to manually reset the light.
You need a timing light. Hook timing light to #1 plug wire; loosen hold down bolt on the distributor and start car. While looking at timing light pointed to balancer timing marks adjust the distributor to get the timing you want. This assumes you are close to desired timing. If you are way off you will need to line up the rotor with #1 at tdc. HTH
