take care of that CD4E man. they like to fail quick. our 626 has the CD4E as well and the first one lost 3rd after i changed the fluid so it got a low mileage junkyard one that was rebuilt in 08 and all was well until the torque converter started slipping in lockup. it turns out that the pressure goes to high and it can crack the piston for the torque converter lock up clutch. there is a shift kit for them that helps to correct the problem and help to keep it from happening. its the TransGo CD4E Jr shift kit. i did it in my backyard in a few hours. it actually does work for the most part. every once and a while it will come out of lockup but hey its better than replacing the torque converter.
also a few things to help extend the life of the trans.
get a aux trans cooler on it to keep the fluid in better shape longer.
also the filter is not serviceable on this trans, its inside the case . so some have put a put a line filter on the cooler lines to keep the larger flakes out of it.

It probably wasn't in the way, I just opted to take it off so I wouldn't get it wet with coolant.
My bad for sure. I made the trip back up here to Bend, fixed it with the one from the old motor. Started fine and warmed up great, but I heard a little noise from the timing cover. So when I pulled it off, I found the timing belt had split lengthwise. Damn. So now I'm gonna limp it 200 miles home in the morning. Wish me luck!!!!
And thanks for the info Daggit.
Lengthwise? How the hell does that happen?
Cars are just like fine women; great to ride but they always end up pissin you off.

I made it home, no problems. Car got to temp and stayed there, so therm and coolant were bad. Now to tackle the timing belt.
Nice what'd it well for if u don't mind me askin.
I got $1500 after buying it for $500 and using it nearly a year. The girl got a "driving while suspended" citation while I was at the Fabulous Fords Forever show, so we sold it to pay her fines.
looked like a clean ride, but priorities come first...
Well, I just got a certified letter in the mail from the county. Looks like the person I sold this Contour to, had a hit and run and DUII in it last weekend, and it's still in my girlfriend's name. Oh boy.
dayumm...that's why it's important to meet at the dmv and sign everything over right there. keep us posted on the situation.
Did you have the buyer sign the title and keep a copy? A print out of this thread might also be useful to back your claim if nothing else is documented.
