I bought the car a while back. It had been sitting a while. It has a 2.5l v6 from a Ford Probe Gt. Well, it ran great for about a week. Then I started messing with the exhaust muffler. Then it started sputtering when I would start it. It backfired and such, and I have to rev it up a few times to get it to run. If I can get it to third gear it runs great, but once I slow and get back to first its messed up. I had headers installed recently and a new cat and muffler and the problem isnt as bad, guy said it could be fuel injectors or a bad egr valve. Any ideas?

There is some very wrong information here. Do not remove the cap or mess with the rotor! As someone else said, go to probetalk.com jumper the t/en test point to ground to disable the automatic timing adjustment - after that it's pretty standard procedure.
A dual-overhead-cam 4-cylinder engine powered base Probes in 1993,
developing 115 horsepower. The GT coupe held a 164-horsepower V6, also
of dual-overhead-cam configuration. Both engines are Mazda designs. No
more turbocharged engines were available. A 5-speed manual transmission
was standard; 4-speed overdrive automatic optional. Except for a slight
horsepower/torque boost in 1995 for the 4-cylinder engine, and a mild V6
torque increase the year before, powertrains saw no change in this
pull up clutch pedal, all the way up. now fill fluid to top, now open the slave cylinder, it should bleed just with gravity. let it drip for a few minutes or until you have to fill it up 2 times. Make sure that when the pedal is all the way up, that the piston is all the way back on the master cylinder. look up at the back of the master cylinder under the dashl. there is an adjustment. you want just very little play between the pedal rod and the piston, just enough that there is some play. but you need some play there. if there isnt any play, adjust the rod.
Sound like the faulty diode on the Distributor which is a common problem on the '93 up to '94 and half V6 Probes. Never was recalled but should have been. Pop in a new Distributor from a mazda or ford and you're golden if that is the problem. My t distributor was a mazda but made by mitsubishi. Go figure, both are excellent Japanese car companies.
for the 1993 probe i could only find a 2.5 V6. there are two banks of cylinders, odd and even. in other words as you stand in front of the vehicle the odd bank is toward the firewall, the even bank is closest to you. the number one cylinder is on the passenger side toward the firewall and firing order is 1-2-3-4-5-6. hope that helps
sounds like your immobilizer is giving you trouble i don't think you'd need to reprogram for a distributor if it worked for a week, your only option is bring to dealer to have immobilizer checked out please rate -jeff
The horn Button at the steering wheel is simply a switch. It grounds out when pushed causing the circuit to close, routing it though the actual horn under the hood which is sitting there waiting to activate.
