Question type: Maintenance & Repair

2000 ford contour won't start. Have replaced
plugs,wirescoil  pack. Relays, oil filter new air filter
new battery had a new fuel system put in this past
summer. When I was driving  it started losing
power going up hill,popping sounds . Got it home
now won't start. Anyone have any ideas of what is
going on?

1 Answer


If it cranks good but won't start, have a helper crank it while you visually check for spark at the spark plugs. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure, then check fuel injector pulse. You need to find out what your missing. Popping sounds might be a valve problem? Can you check applicable trouble codes? I saw what you replaced, didn't see any testing? The basics for problems at higher rpms, check for blockage of some king, fuel--air--exhaust. Under a load, does the tranny downshift?
