I have the same problem with my 1998 Ford contour 2.0 will not start! New spark plugs new wires, new coil pack, cam sensor, new battery cables and new ignition switch. Getting fuel and spark. and the timing belt is good and tight.. Alternator is good and starter is good also battery is good. When I try starting the car it tries and tries but nothing?? What else can I do????
