Question about 1995 Ford Probe
Have had no problems with my probe, today went out to leave and all it does it trys to start, no firing , i tried to press gas petal to the floor a couple times and nothing except then i started to smell gas. so i shut it off.
Since it's turning over and you smell gas you probably have a spark proble. Check spark at plugwires and work back to the coil by disconnecting the smaller 3 prong connector at the distributor. Check for 520-580 ohms between the 2 outer prongs on the dist. side. If that is good pull the cap and inspect. Check resistance from the inner of the 3 prongs and the coil by probing the hole where the cap penetrates the high tension lead. No resistance = Bad coil. Replace dist. NEXT Remove dist. marking the rotor position and the housing position in order to replace it the same spot. Tun th rotor and you should hear 6 clicks per rotation. this is the injectores taking spark. If none then CK1 (or camshaft sensor) is likely bad. refer to manual for in depth and double checking the routine. A Disty is aroung $200-250 or 1,000 at dealer. Even after all these checks there is no guarantee as the probe is known to have some really tough spark issues. Particularly the 93. This info is for 93 2.5L 6cyl., but translates well for most any car. ICM (ignition control module) cannot be tested unless your parts house has a tester. Th eprobes have internal icm and coil (in the dist.).
Remember. You can jumper from gnd and 10 pin too pull codes.
All this can be found in a 15$ Haynes manual which pays for itself the first time you have issues. Feel Free t oe-mail me - I have gone Waayyay past this with my 93. Bayside@operamail.com
