My car drives fine until about 4 hours on my route then it stalls and sputters until it dies. It cranks up and runs for a little bit longer but throws the code P0304. I was installing a new fuel pump but noticed my fuel pump assembly had a burned wire inside of it and got another assembly out of the salvage yard.

For it to start but it does start after I do that then I turn car off and it does it again not all the Ti.e but most of the time now engine light came on 98000 miles on it it makes a grinding nose when I turn it of and turn it back on what could be the problem been doing this for six moths now

Have timing belt
Now how to time it

Okay so my dad got his first transmission fluid replaced at 150,000 miles... yes i know that was dumb but now it keeps slipping from out of overdrive into overdrive. Currently it wont shift into 3rd gear. I need to accelerate to get it going. The O/D light is flashing and thats a check transmission light, and a check engine light is on. I didn't check the code yet but I will when I can.

after repair of shifter cable the speedomoter bounces around erratically.

97 ford contour will run for a little then die then after you wait like 10 minutes you can start it again. Sometimes I can drive long distances

I'm looking at buying this car is it difficult to fix and what other problems may arise?

Its a Ford Contour 1999... it also has a fuel feed problem. It seems to shift erratically between 40 and 50 mph.

I need an estimate for the replacement of an O-ring for the #2 cylinder. Want to be sure I don't get ripped off when it is replaced. Thank you for any information you can help me with.

Just bought the car took to advance auto they say needs repair on this O-ring.

Recently changed the starter tried to start the car fuse blew hot wired it how long is this short fix last and is it safe to drive on the hwy

has less than 1 hundred 20 thousand km
Started to notice it about a week ago, got progressively worse until I almost didn't make it home a couple nights ago. At that time I was traveling at approx 80km per hr. tranny was slipping from drive to neutral and back again as I was driving on the hwy. This transmission apparently doesn't require a filter so that isn't the problem. Up till now it's been a good car to me so I'm really hoping it won't require a new transmission to get it back on the road. I just can't afford that kind of expense. Someone on this forum said something about a pump, anyone know anything about that?

Belt broke, had it replaced. Now its running rough, from pocket diagnostics I thought it needed the Master Air Flow Sensor replaced but once installed its not the problem. Any idea what it could be?
