who ever is putting it in sounds like they should stay away from it,if the belt tension is not right it will jump time or pop off,you could also have worn gears on the cam gear or crank gear,the Contour has beena bad car for Ford,when they came out new they had problems.

what do I own,71 torino cobra,70 \71 ranger xlt,3 T-Bird,super coupes,.2-89,s 1 90,99 grand am,2 S10,09 SHELBY COBRA KR,2 peterbuilts,FYI,that is 2 tractor trailors,now what do you own??? oh I also own my home.
