Question about 1990 Ford Probe

1 Answer

97 Ford Probe GT will not crank

My son bought the car with over 100K miles. He had trouble with the car cranking so he would mash down on the clutch and the car would crank. Yesterday that stopped working. It seems to me that there might be a sensor that senses the clutch is depressed before you can turn the key. Is there such a sensor or is it something else.

Your absolutely rite that is a safety feature! so the car will not take off in gear if you forget to put clutch down to disengage it so no one will get ran over! maybe your natural safety switch is gone! or the starter motor.

97 should be hydraulic, so you may need to check the master and slave cylinders. Your description sounds like the clutch disc is not moving off the flywheel.

97 ford contour V-6 cranks won't run


Open the air cleaner and look down into the intake while someone else is turning over the car. Is their gas or gasoline vapor being put into the engine or not?   If yes then I take a philips screw driver on the end of a spark plug wire while some one else is turning it over, to see if it has any spark.  I woudl gues 90% or all non start but cranking problems are going to be in one of these two areas.
