Do you hear the fuel pump run a few seconds every time the key is turned to run? Have you pulled a spark plug and looked at the tip? What engine does it have?

Take the plugs out and if wet , either dry or replace them .

Re: Ford Contour Wont Start

the plugs look a little bad but i do not think it is that
it has a 2.0L engine also the pump is fine it made a noise for 1-2 seconds when i turned the ignition switch on then turned off it is not in fail safe mode
is it possible that the crank position sensor went bad?
