Information on Contour or Escort

Hi, I am looking to buy a Ford Contour V6 engine or Escort wagon (model year ~ 1997 and up). I am wondering if anyone could tell me if Duratec V6 engine
from contour is reliable? Timing chain or belt? Have heard that this engine has issue with intake clogging (something with secondary flap...?)
Also how is Escort engine (Mazda engine or Ford?) Seen and have heard it is reliable transportation and the price of these two vehicles is within my budget.
Thx for the help in advance.

2 hours Wrap the rolls: Place 3 tablespoons of stuffing in the wrap, roll tightly - corner nearest you first, fold 2 side corners in, wrap till remaining corner is left. Brush with egg, seal, and allow to sit on the seal for a few minutes. Fry the rolls: 325 if using egg roll wraps, 350 for spring roll wraps. Deep fry in peanut oil till crispy golden brown, drain on paper towels.

Turkey serves just as well, and in fact even looks a bit like a well-dressed baby. By the time you turn the child?s breast into cutlets, it will be indistinguishable. The taste of young human, although similar to turkey (and chicken) often can be wildly different depending upon what he or she has consumed during its 10 to 14 months of life...
4 well chosen cutlets (from the breasts of 2 healthy neonates) 2 large lemons (fresh lemons always, if possible) Olive oil Green onions Salt pepper cornstarch neonate stock (chicken, or turkey stock is fine) garlic parsley fresh cracked black pepper
Season and saut the cutlets in olive oil till golden brown, remove. Add the garlic and onions and cook down a bit. Add some lemon juice and some zest, then de-glaze with stock. Add a little cornstarch (dissolved in cold water) to the sauce. You are just about there, Pour the sauce over the cutlets, top with parsley, lemon slices and cracked pepper. Serve with spinach salad, macaroni and cheese (homemade) and iced tea...

I have a UK spec Mondeo 2.5 V6 hatchback 110000 miles on the clock relaible and very smooth does around 30 miles per UK gallon. (US and UK gallons ar NOT the same ISTR UK galls about 20% more than US)
I have seen posts to newsgroups about the wate pump fan blades failing (in US spec Contour or Taurus) and seriously messing up the engine (being aluminum it would heat up and get dmamaged rather quick without coolant) but I have no personal experience or know anyone who has had this trouble.
It is a timing chain engine. Not heard anything about the intake colgging,

2 cups beef stock
Marinate meat (optional, not necessary with better cuts). Season liberally and lace with garlic cloves by making incisions, and placing whole cloves deep into the meat. Grease a baking pan, and fill with a thick bed of onions, celery, green onions, and parsley. Place roast on top with fat side up. Place uncovered in 500 oven for 20 minutes, reduce oven to 325. Bake till medium rare (150) and let roast rest. Pour stock over onions and drippings, carve the meat and place the slices in the au jus.
Bisque l?Enfant
Honor the memory of Grandma with this dish by utilizing her good silver soup tureen and her great grandchildren (crawfish, crab or lobster will work just as well, however this dish is classically made with crawfish).
Stuffed infant heads, stuffed crawfish heads, stuffed crab or lobster shells; make patties if shell or head is not available (such as with packaged crawfish, crab, or headless baby). Flour oil onions bell peppers garlic salt, pepper, etc. 3 cups chicken stock 2 sticks butter 3 tablespoons oil
First stuff the heads, or make the patties (see index) then fry or bake. Set aside to drain on paper towels. Make a roux with butter, oil and flour, brown vegetables in the roux, then add chicken stock and allow to simmer for 20 minutes. Add the patties or stuffed heads, and some loose crawfish, lobster, long piglet, or what h

I have a 99 Contour V6 with the Duratec and it has performed great for me. As another post suggests, I have heard that the water pump needs to be replaced well before 100,000 miles. I have 80,000 on my car and have had very few problems with it. Check out contour.org There is a forum there that you can search to answer any question that you may have.
