  2. I own of a 1999 Contour SVT as well as a parts car for it which is a 1998 SVT, Both Silver. The 99 is a low mileage car that has some minor front end damage I will be fixing with parts from the 98. I'm a long time mechanic and own a good portion of the Ford Contour specific Rotunda/OTC service tools. I always liked the idea behind the Contour Concept and following in that line I owned several Ford Probes and still have a 1987 Merkur XR4Ti. My other vehicles and interest are: 1999 Jeep Wrangler TJ lifted and some custom made parts 1965 Mustang Fastback 1989 Land Cruiser FJ62 1953 Chevy 210 Sedan 1971 Triumph TR6 1988 Mercury Cougar XR7

  8. Hi all, and sorry (yup, Canadian), but I don't see any rules about posting items for sale. I have a '99 Contour in good running order, plus parts (doors, hood, trunk lid -- yeah, no, we don't say "boot" -- a moon roof and an instrument panel) from my previous SVT (we've had 4 Contours in all). Just wondering if OK and where I'd post pix and details on these items -- unfortunately, it is time to sell.

  10. I will be working on the back end of the site and also updating the forum software to 4.4.1 from 4.3.6 we are on now. This will result in a little downtime here and there. I will try to work on this later tonight so the site is not down during peak visiting time. Thanks, -Dominic
  11. The valve covers are different. Just look at a known early one 95-98 and compare to yours. If the same it is early, if not it is VVT. AF
  12. The difference has to do with variable valve timing in the later Zetec. AF
  13. I only see a cutoff on the production date of 3/29/99. Before 3/29/99 is one style, From 3/29/99- is another style. You can call any Ford dealer service dept. and give them the VIN and they will give you the exact build date if you don't have it for reference. Since you are a 4/99 build you are in the after club on the cutoff date. -Dominic
  14. Hello everyone glad to be on this form i’m a new owner of a 1999 Ford contour SVT it was a dream car that I always wanted unfortunately is not running at the moment but I’m trying to solve the problem.
  15. What is the difference between the timing belt on the before and after 4/99 engines ,my engine is dated 4 /99 so it`s right on the cusp. ,vin does read 3 for the engine but I have read all different info. on the timing belt, some read 3/99 others read 5/99 as the cutoff for timing belt difference who is right?
  16. Stay away from the Gates kits, never had anything but issues especially with the included idlers and tensioners that come with the full kit.
  17. Hello, I like a Continental Contitech kit, but I don't know of a kit that includes a water pump. Be sure to check out info on replacement procedures and using the proper tools will make it go much better. Terry Haines posted a lot of info about this. Regards, AF
  18. What is the best timing belt kit with water pump that can be had? 1999 contour 2.0
  19. When the car is off, yes. It's a theft deterrent. -Dominic

    Pats system

    So I'm still kinda new to cars with security, never paid much attention to them.. But short question... Pats light on dash blinks every 3 seconds... Normal?
  21. Wow, sounds like it's had some work done! Normally what happens is the speed sensor on the transmission shorts out (due to the wiring at the sensor end fraying and cracking) and the PATS system will lockout. This will cause a no-start condition. Basic symptom is flashing PATS light (Red light on the center dash plate that says "Contour" - That is unless you swapped it out for a clock). Speed sensors are cheap and removeal and installation are pretty simple. I would start by checking that first as it's quite common. -Dominic

    Ok... bit of back up... Bought the car needing a clutch.. Also had no radio... Took it to a bad mechanic unknowingly.. Got clutch replaced a couple times... After the last time he worked on it my a/c was no longer working,and the guide pin passenger side on radiator was ripped up causing radiator leak... Took it to an awesome mechanic who installed new radiator.... Installed radio myself... Used to do it a lot when i was younger.. Blast ahead a couple years... Don't remember transmission or motor mount... One was broken and rubbed a hole in the hydraulic line for clutch... Had that all fixed but the second mechanic... Worked great until recently when i moved to Portland... Had the power steering pump, rack n pinion, and brakes completely replaced before i came here... All had bad leaks.... Over all it had been a great car... All this time on the same battery.... Lights have dimmed with radio since i stated driving the Car... Or when the idle is down it dims slightly.... And recently not been starting all the time and speedometer bouncing when the accelerator is pressed.... Currently I'm driving with the radio face off to see if the drain stops... Thought back story may give other ideas as well
  23. Welcome to FCO! The speed sensor (VSS) on the transmission can short out causing this and other issues. There are some examples floating around if you search. -Dominic

    Currently I do need a little help, recently the speedometer started jumping when I start it and sometimes when I rev the engine... As well as not wanting to start.. Any ideas?
