Anyone interested in a repair resource for members
#887650 - 03/25/05 05:09 PM

Hi All
I was just wondering if we could put a post together and keep it as a FAQ to list all the Contour friendly garages and mechanics we have dealt with? I know the questions keep coming up, so instead of having to do a search everytime, we would have one place to look at for whatever info we are looking for.
For instance, I know that Second Time Around tires at Kenneday and the 401 looked after me real well when I bought my Falkens. They said then they would provide a small discount for list members too.
ANy thoughts?
Erik

Good plan. We can make a sticky of this post so that it is always on top.

That was my thought. Glad you agree!

Hi
So does anyone know any other mechanics in GTA who are willing and know how to work with contours? From my experience i know that not too many people know and want to deal with that engine.

My local garage, Super Tech Auto Repair (50 Industrial Rd., Richmond Hill), has been great with my '98 SVT. So far, they've done wheel bearings, brakes, complete intake rebuild, etc. They're very reasonable and honest. Lal and Sonny, 905-780-7551.

Hi
I got V6 2.5L Duratec. I been having lots of problems with harness. It all started with a PCM(even Ford did not know that it was a computer). They were fidgiting with a car for a week and i think broke some stuff in the harness(maybe by mistake). After changing a PCM(most of the pins had corrosion on them because of water). Then, CEL was on until now. Problem is with sensors and not with units itself but the wires. and i had so many mechanics turn it down and not wanting to look for it. and the one who do, change way too much and it costs way too much i labour hours. I got one guy working it so i am maybe 75% done.
Has any one else had a problem with a harness?
