For a while my 99 ford contour will not start.

Asked by Jun 05, 2014 at 08:46 PM about the 1999 Ford Contour 4 Dr SE Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

It would for a while only start if I gassed it. I was driving to work one morning, stopped at a
stop light and she turned off. got her to start after two tries.
Drove it for a mile or 2 then i noticed instead of accelerating it decelerated. it wont start.
changed spark plugs 3 times. may be compression problem but dont have a tester for it.
ive had a problem with the vaccum as well. Any ideas will help. thx
