1999 Ford Contour Will not start Sign In

I have a 1999 ford contour and it will not start. Spark plugs are getting fire. Fuel is getting to the injectors. When you remove the spark plugs they are really wet. Is it possible that the injectors are staying open and flooding the engine? What could be causing the car not to start. The car is a 4 cyclinder 2.0 liter engine .

hmmmmm sounds like my 92 grand am. i got a spark and i got fule. i've even checked the timing everything is ok. the only thing i can think of is the computer. if the check engine light comes on i'd start with that.

Thats the only thing thst we can think of as well. The check engine light has never been on before. Do we have to take the car to the dealership to get the computer tested?

well sometimes yes. its a 99 so i do know it's got the obd2 computer system in it. you can get a tester at a parts shop. it hooks up to the diognostic hook up under the dash board. usually on the drivers side. it might be cheaper to do it your self but i'd ask the guy at the parts shop. you might have to take it to the dealer or a automotive place.

Have you replaced the plugs? Once they are fuel fouled, they do not fire properly. Are you sure there is spark going to the plugs??? How did you check for spark? Please give more information as to what led you to your conclusion and we can give you a better answer. A bad coolant temperature sensor can cause a no start, so can a crank sensor. So we need some more info to assist you much more. Ford's PCM's are usually reliable, so that would be the last place to look.



Being way2old is why I need help from younger minds
