1999 ford contour won't start

Asked by Aug 31, 2010 at 11:53 AM about the 1999 Ford Contour 4 Dr LX Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Driving along....car stalled. Wouldn't start again. Garage said cylinders were full of fuel. Put
new plugs in, coil pack ok,timing ok, spark now ok.  He says I need a new motor. Does this
sound right? What is he missing? I have had no problems so far with it till this point.

1 Answer

like i have said before,the contour was not the car they though it to be,they have always been trouble,if your timeing belt broke it would do nothing sounds to me the mechanic is right.
