Question about 1995 Ford Probe

1995 Ford Probe sputtering, dying. Won't start now.

My 1995 4 cylinder 2.0 Ford Probe started cutting out recently, but would keep running. But last night, it sputtered, and died on me. I couldn't get it started. Plenty of gas. I put in a new PCV Valve, but that didn't work. Starter turns over fine, but it just won't start up. Could it be the fuel filter, the fuel pump, or something else?

Sounds like either distributor or bad timing might need new belt

To make sure the fuel pump is operating get in a quite place get in vehicle and turn ignition switch on position you should hear alittle buzz for about 2 seconds try this several times if no buzz is heard then the fuel pump is not running. check fuel pump relay in power box by switching relay with one of same type thare should be one of same type in the box if not then purchase one and try it. If the pump is ok then you know you have a firing problem. check to see if you have spark by taking one of the spark plugs out then hook spark plug wire to it lay it on engine and look for spark while someone turns the ignition switch as if trying to start car

This to me sounds like it could be the fuel pump but first I would check the simpler solution and make sure your alternator is good because if your started turns over fine but the car wont start the next part to check would be for me the alternator.

Why does my recently tuned-up 1995 ford taurus with 127,400 miles, cuts out and sputters when I get up to a certain speed.


A couple questions first.. at what speed does it cut out at, and is the cut out consistent at that speed? Just to throw a couple ideas at you to begin with, it could be a plugged fuel filter, because what happens is that the higher speed you travel at, the more pressure it takes to push the gas through the filter. So if it's plugged, you will notice it at higher speeds. If you slow down, the gas will trickle through enough to keep the engine running smoothly. Start there, and if no help, write back and we'll get into some sensors to check. But they are a little more pricey...

1994 Ford Probe GT fuel flooding problem. The longer it sits unstared, the harder it is to start the next time. I have to hold the gas to the floor before priming the ignition to cut off fuel to my pistons...


Your fuel pressure regulator is bad. It is a small round 2" diameter component with a vaccuum line connected to it. If you remove the vaccuum line ane have any hint of gasoline in the hose the diaphram is bad and needs replaced. It is located on top of the engine connected to the fuel supply rail. Hope that helps answer your question. Thank you.

Backfiring sputtering, won't start


Could be lots of things. Could be plugs or wires or a combination of both are going bad. Probably time to change all of them any way.
