HI
got 1998 Contour. 1st problem was with PCM and then after replacing it, wiring for O2 sensors was all messed up. Sent last saturday trying to get it working and still one O2 sensor would not work. I had to trick a computer by switching wires from one that work to one that does not. However CEL came back on after worming the sensors. How do you find if there is a recall from it??? and are there any good electricians?
car was at dealership but they wanted to $2000 for harness and who knows how many labour hours....(i am not crazy to pay them so much)
its a big problem...

I'm sure you could jerry rig the wiring. Just need to find out where it goes dead along its run. Which bank and is it the upstream or downstream O2?

Hi Guys
here is what i posted in "troubleshooting"
I posted here before about CEL and O2. i was looking for diagrams(1998 Duratec V6 2.5L), after getting all of that i started fixing it.
In novemeber car was shutting off on wet conditions, so PCM was changed(pins were corroded) then 3 of 4 O2 sensors were not working because of problems in the harness, but car was running in wet weather or after car wash. so i fixed 2 sensor wires and one was left.
so here is fun part.
after car wash on friday car died on the road again!!! i was furious... but after 1hour or so things got dry and was drivable.
next day i was trying to solve the mystery:
CEL was always ON but it was only one O2 sensor, and now i got one more code:
P1451 - Evap system vent control valve fault
p0136 - HO2S12 CKT fault

so what do i do with P1451 and is it the code that can cause my car to stall after washing again????
P0136 - front bottom Bank1 Sensor 2. tried fixing it with all combinations. but its reading freezes at 0 or 1600mV. i knew it was wires so i reconnected wires to other sensors since all of them run in parallel(but nothing). Last thing i did was to trick a PCM(wires from sensor1 to sensor 2 in PCM to get a good reading at least, but it was no go)

Sorry if you had to read so much but i really want to get this done cause u cant imagine parania when car shuts off when u driving 50 or 100(i had both)

Thanks so much

I found a person in London who will machine cross drilled rotors for 15 bux a pop. Catch is, you have to take in your rotors yourself, he doesn't have the stuff to take the wheel/brakes off

Call Jim @ Battery Supply 519-433-2811

Any Part Source will turn rotors for $9.99ea. I'm not sure about cross drilled though.

A very good guy I deal with is in Scarborough. The shop is Alex Performance Exhaust (416-715-4015). This guy doesn't just do exhaust work,but does pretty much anything. He swapped my tranny for $500 when any other shop wanted $1400! However,I did get a bit of a discount through my Celica club,C7Performance,so if you use him,tell him Mike (that's me ) from C7 with the Contour referred you,and he should give you a discount.

He's just a small one bay garage and runs the shop by himself. He is a great guy,who is very honest and will bend over backwards for you. His shop is in a bit of a shady area,as some people who have parked their cars there overnight have been broken into,but Alex is such a good guy,that one guy had a $600 amp stolen from his Celica and Alex bought him a brand new amp for $600 out of his own pocket!

The shop is located on Sinnott Rd. not far from the Eglinton Square plaza.

I highly recommend his services.He is very knowledgeable and talented in what he does.

------

I can also recommend Summit Ford on Hwy 27 in Brampton. I have a friend who works as an apprentice mechanic there,and can get parts at cost,so if you need stuff,let me know and I can tell him and he'll order it.
