Question about 1989 Ford Probe

1 Answer

Stalling around right turns

If I'm on the highway, or getting on or off a ramp that curves right, or even sometimes when I start a right turn at a stop light, the fuel cuts out... if I keep my pedal to the floor, it wont die, but when I complete the turn, fuel comes on strong and car starts I have to play w/ it to get it to smoothly round a corner. Only happens when tank is less than half full. replaced fuel filter and checked operation of fuel pump. No wires being pinched by steering.

    I have a similar problem. i have a 93 ford escort...just replaced the fuel pump but suspect that some rust may have ended up in the tank. car was running well and then suddenly would stall when making right turns, especially when accelerating around those turns. have not yet replaced the fuel filter, and i'm not sure that's the problem. does anyone have any suggestions?

While driving my 96 Ford Taurus car stalled while taking off ramp on a Highway. Can't get running. It turns over, engages for second and stalls again. Any ideas

Could be a number of different thing's ,without testing i would only be guessing . You do not what to replace a bunch of parts you don't need . Do you know what sensor scan data is . Need a scan tool to check this ,plus you need to know what the expected data should be. Factory service info .
048 Engine Hard to Start or No Start Scan Data for Starting Problems

047 Engine Hard to Start or No Start Scan Data for Ignition

Your best bet ,take it to a qualified repair shop. Don't look for magical fixes on here .

Stalls while driving

Can you be more specific does it happen only on the highway what is the speed is it when accelerating does it happen on other roads, does it start right up after stalling as it seems unlikely that it would just be the highway in order to even try and figure it out more information is required

Non so to speak without writing a book
You just have to check for codes & start
a logical diagnostic process of testing
You input is critcal for a shop to understand the
reason your there
You do not won't a tunp-up or anything else
You only want the immediate problem diagnosed
& resolved
Becareful not all shop know a lot or can solve all issues
Be part of the solution don't just hand over the key & not
be there sometime due their work on your car
Ask questions & take notes

Was driving my 2005 Mazda 6 in the curve of an exit ramp and just at the end of the ramp just before being able to exit onto the highway, the car cut off. We tried to start it, but it wouldn't crank. ...


This is likely to be electrical related.

Your vehicle's On-board diagnostic (OBDII) computer will have stored the applicable fault codes.

Have your computer scanned by your local Mazda dealership (or approved agent) for these codes, which will immediately identify the circuit/component causing this condition.

I have a 92 ford ranger and it will turn on but sometimes on the road it will just shut off and wont start up again for a while i just changed the fuel pump so i know thats not it can u help

While driving on the highway does it drive fine untill you get off on the off ramp and then it just wants to stall out?
Check the cataletic converter to see if it is clogged. Remove the front connection to the cat and drive it if it runs ok then there is your problem.
Hope this helps.
