Speedometer stopped working. 96 ford contour gl 2.0L engine 5 speed manual transmission.
The car quit running. Had on defrost. Turned off defrost and cranked it back up. Also transmission has been jerking into gear. Not all the time but more often.
What seems to make the problem better or worse? cutting off with defrost on and cranking back up and running with no defrost.
How long have you had this problem? cutting off for a day now. transmission jerking for a few weeks

10 sec. or more than stop and as I'm driving it'll come back (the HUMMING) stay while driving for 5 min. it's seems to be get worst. It sounds like the sound is on the driver side . what could cause the humming? Sincerely Humming Along!
The fan on the passenger side spun a bearing causing the fans motor to burn out. The fan on the Driver side still moves freely but doesn't want to kick on. So I checked the fuse and it was blown, but when I replaced it with the New one after putting it all back together and reconnecting the battery, I started it up and the fuse blew again. So now what do I look for?
its as if no electrical current from ignition to starter no warning at all
The problem seemed to have stopped for about two weeks after we changed the valve cover gaskets and plugs and wires. Then slowly started to occasionally have an "episode" till the other day went out to crank to go to work and it would never start up and run.
Both fans run as required. Only way to lower temp is to switch on heater to max and needle returns to normal but passengers pass out! Blocked Radiator? Mileage is 85,000. Thanks in advance.

You can hear the door open and push heat, then it sounds like it closes in about 3 seconds, like a loss of vacuum on it,or an electrical malfunction to it. Then it seams to start sending cool air...
