Asked by Dec 14, 2015 at 04:21 PM about the 1995 Ford Contour

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I pulled off the highway and gave my car gas it putted along with no power
and died. I changed the Mass Air Flow sensor and once I shift it into reverse

cranks, and when starting fluid is used it turns over but dies immeadiately.

Replace camshaft sensor and / or crankshaft sensor would replace camshaft sensor first than try to start vehicle.

By pulled off hwy and gave it gas do you mean that you put gas in it or pressed the accelerator? Also by the fuel pump worked do you have a fuel pressure reading? do you mean that it will run on starter fluid or just seems more eager to crank? If it runs on starter fluid it isn't getting fuel or fuel that burns. If it does run on starter fluid it would indicate that the crank & cam sensors are working as they also control spark. Do you have any more info?
