  1. Thank you for the reply. The car was running great before it overheated, but hopefully they are not related. I will give it a tune up and see if it solves my issues.

  3. My 2000 ford contour v6 broke the water pump belt on the way home from work tonight. It was a few minutes until I got the car off the road the temp was pegged. I had a friend bring me a new belt and replaced in the parking lot. I was able to get the car home, but a few !miles feo! Ho!e in started to get a misfire.

  7. Hi! This is my first post and I am excited to be on this forum. Have read over a lot of posts but just decided to join. Currently, I am working on my 2000 contour se v6.
