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 bucking...so 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?

Idles roughly, then low when stopped or in park, then dies. Decreasing gas mileage. Slow to accelerate


Sometimes that's caused by a vacuum leak near the manifold area.

Sometimes air in the coolant will cause an idle problem. Air will keep the air temp sensor from sending proper info.
Hope this helps.

Tip

Save Money on Gas/Petrol


  1. Avoid idling. While idling, your car gets exactly 0 miles per gallon while starting the car uses the same amount as idling for 6 seconds. Park your car and go into the restaurant rather than idling in the drive-through. Idling with the air conditioning on also uses extra fuel. Also, avoid going so fast that you have to brake for someone. Whenever you brake, you waste the gas it took to get going that fast.
  2. Drive at a consistent speed. Avoid quick acceleration and hard braking. Cruise control will keep you at a constant speed, even when going up and down hills.
  3. Avoid stops. If approaching a red light, see if you can slow down enough to avoid having to actually stop (because you reach the light after it is green). Speeding up from 5 or 10 miles per hour will be easier on the gas than starting from full stop.
  4. Anticipate the stop signs and lights. Look far ahead; get to know your usual routes. You can let up on the gas earlier. Coasting to a stop will save the gasoline you would otherwise use maintaining your speed longer. If it just gets you to the end of a line of cars at a red light or a stop sign a few seconds later, it won't add any time to your trip. Ditto for coasting to lose speed before a highway off-ramp: if it means you catch up with that truck halfway around the curve instead of at the beginning, you haven't lost any time. In many cities, if you know the streets well, you can time the lights and maintain the appropriate speed to hit all green lights. Usually this is about 35 to 40 MPH.
  5. Slow down. Air resistance goes up as the square of velocity. The power consumed to overcome that air resistance goes up as the cube of the velocity. Rolling resistance is the dominant force below about 40 mph. Above that, every mph costs you mileage. Go as slow as traffic and your schedule will allow. Drive under 60-65 since air grows exponentially denser, in the aerodynamic sense, the faster we drive. To be precise, the most efficient speed is your car's minimum speed in it's highest gear, since this provides the best "speed per RPM" ratio. This is usually about 45 to 55 miles per hour.
  6. Use A/C only on the highway. At lower speeds, open the windows. This increased the drag and reduces fuel efficiency, but not as much as the AC at low speeds (35-40 mph). The air con - when used a lot - is known to use up about 8% of the fuel you put into your car.

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

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. ...


Hi,

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.

Cheers,

Car will shut down at random times. There is no pattern to it either. It will shut down at a traffic light, on the highway, or on city streets. I have power everywhere else: lights, radio, and everything...


It could be an electrical problem or a fuel problem somewhere, but I suspect the CPS (crankshaft position sensor) is going bad. When this starts going out, the car will shut off at anytime, but it will sometimes start right back up and sometimes a couple of hours. But I will say, if this is the problem it will leave you stranded. Good Luck.

Hi, 1997 monte carlo that idles, but cuts out when put in gear, or at times while driving. 3.1 engine. 184,000 mi.


I don't have an answer for you, but I do have a similar or maybe even the same issue with mine. It usually starts up fine, and idles and runs fine when first started, however a few blocks or a few miles down the road it starts to cut out on me, sometimes dying completely... throwing it into neutral and pumping the gas usually will keep it running. This has gone on for a couple of months. When it does die, It normally will restart after sitting for a few minutes. Then a couple of weeks ago it died on me (normally this happens when slowing down and coming to a stop,) and would not restart even after a 1/2 hr, I had to have it towed. I periodically attempted to start it for over a week, it would turn over, but nothing more...then someone suggested that I disconnect the auto start box...It started right up. However, it still continues to cut out when slowing or stopping unless thrown into neutral and pumping the gas. It seems to run better on the open highway, than it does in town with all the slower speed and stop n go. I bought this car used about 6 mos. ago, and considering it's age and the 135K miles on it, I don't want to put any more money into it. I just read there is a recall on this vehicle for the fuel pump and additionally the fuel assembly, I'm not sure if this would be the answer to the whole problem or not.
