Question about Ford Probe

1 Answer

We have a 89 ford probe that while driving and stopped at a stop light lost all gears. It's an automatic that while running the manual shift light keeps flashing. We checked the transmission fluid and the level was fine. We can't figure out the problem. Please help

Manually shift thru all gears up & down the scale. Try adding Motorcraft Additive Friction Modifier, available from Ford parts dept. This REALLY STINKS!!! Don't get any on you. Pour into trans fluid. Drive a few miles shifting manually thruthe gears, then do a normal start stop drive several times. This will luburcate trans, normally used for differential but has worked in automatic transmissions of all makes for years. Otherwise mechanical problem for transmission repair facility.

The car shift in first and second gear but slip in third is this problem common in probe?


I have a 1989 Probe GT, 2.2L, 5spd, Turbo.

If its one thing I have learned about the Probes is that they are amazing cars until something needs fixing.

--Is the car an automatic or manual trans?
--What engine is in it (if you know)? If not what size is it
(ex. 2.2L, 4cyl / 3.0 V-6)

If its an automatic it could be a number of problems. If its manual the most likely causes are bent or broken shift linkage, or third gear is shot.

Is it only 3rd gear that it pops out of, or anything past second?

Manual transmission light flickers off and on-car won't go over40


Is the car a manual or automatic, 4 or 6 cyl? If it is a manual trans the hard shift could be due to worn shift forks which were rather common in these cars, had them go out in my 90 GT a few years ago. Could also be low on lube or the wrong lube. To check the lube on a manual trans car remove the speedometer drive which is on the top of the trans. The fluid should be at the bottom of the gear on the drive. The proper fluid is ATF not heavy gear oil that ends up getting put in. Hope this helps
