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
