Re: ford contour eratic shifting

Have you checked the codes? maybe you can fix what's wrong with yours. Has it been serviced? Sometimes that's all they need. How does the fluid look and smell? Burnt and brown?

Often the MAF will give a poor running and shifting problem. There's a special cleaner for that. Try cleaning it, keep track of the codes, clear the codes and try driving it to see what happens.
