What you need to check is the transmission release bearing because if there is a clearance on the release bearing you will encounter this problem and also check the transmission oil.

Sounds like you need to cover basics first. The battery cables are clean and tight? Are all the wires in the battery cable at the battery making a good connection? Sounds like a common problem and is in the service bullitins is that the ground wire attached to the battery cable end that goes to the body and then to the transmission case bolt has failed to provide a good ground and the acuators and servos and even the switches have'nt a good path to ground ( their is one but it's though other controllers and the power isn't strongly grounded. I f you were following a dianostic tree of good and bad the ground is the number one cause of your problem. Don't fix the old grounds just add new ones. and then clear codes and test it again. Oil leaks near the transmission to engine connection were found by me everytime that I was assigned to this set of problems. Ground corrected and the car was fixed.

93f250 will not go into park or reverse,does the linkage need to be adjusted?


I had a similar problem with my Econoline--the vehicle would not start because the vehicle would not go in park (I had to manually move the linkage arm).
For my problem the linkage bolt had stripped causing an alignment problem therefore I bought a helicoil tap set and re-tapped the hole on the transmission where the linkage braket attached.
Worth a look anyway.

Hope this helps--

The 1995 ford probe will not accelerate after a complete stop, I give it gas and the car revs in drive without moving forward, does this particular problem have anything to do with the fuel injection, or...

it is a transmission issue which are no stranger to ford probes, not sure exactly what part is faulty inside the transmission but in most cases with that vehicle it is not do it yourself, the only thing you can try is replacing the filter and fluid in the pan.

Just quit running while driving will still turn still over, getting fuel thought filter, i dont think im getting fire. 1990 2.2L ford probe

i had the same thing happen to me after it turned 200,000 miles.

All you have is a bad electric connecter to the fuel rail it's located over by the battery and that should help your problem.
i hope this helps and good luck.

i'm on here looking beacuse mine is hard to get started.

1989 to 1990 Powered door conversion

about the only advice i can give is that i did the same thing with a 94 probe base and a 94 gt. i had to take the whole wiring harness out of the gt and put it in the base. It starts from the inside fuse block, goes to both doors, under the front seats, all the way to the fuel pump, abs, tail lights, and pretty much everything from the dash to the rear of the car. If you can get a whole harness, it should work.

1990 Ford Probe 2.2 automatic stalls in forward, reverse OK

Sounds like a bad IAC (idle air control valve/sensor) that controls your idle when going from throttle to idle. If bad your idle will act crazy and can cause stalls easily. Pretty sure that's it.
