Tip & How-To about 1993 Ford Probe
I Thought about it a while, and suffered with it for a long time. If left sitting, it would restart in a few minutes and keep on going.I finally got it to continue messing up, and by using the key, and radio, I conclued it was related to ignition. Radio off station would stop clicking when it quit. I also turned off key while driving, and speedometer would drop to zero. This indicated computer was working. Finally took apart the distributor, and found cracked ignition module. Several other things were questionable about the distributor, so I splurged for another whole unit. I found it on E-Bay at a store called Distributor King. They sold me a brand new unit, no exchange, no sales tax, and no shipping for $200.00 including distributor cap, coil, module, etc. This fixed the problem 100%. They said that the Japanese did not consider the hot temperatures when manufacturing these models. The new distributor was and improved version (so they say) and is working perfect so far. It was easy to replace, and could not be installed out of time. Thanks to them, I saved a lot of money, and am happy.
