We went through about the same thing for three years, with none of the mechanics around here being able to help us either. I finally fixed it myself. I wrote a little story on how I managed to do it. The story can be found at the link below: http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/6108428/the_ford_contour_is_the_worst_car_ive.html?cat=27

check for vac leaks,have the timeing checked,as i have said before the contour was not the car that ford expected it to be,they had problems from the start and ford did nothing to fix it.
