Troubleshooting 1995 Ford Probe Problem

My 1995 Ford Probe with a 2.5 V6 engine has no power above idle speed when in gear. When in park or neutral, I can increase idle after some engine roughness to 3000 rpm or above. Already changed catalyitic convertor to no avail. Can anybody suggest any other options.

Thanks.
Phil

Check airflow control valve,changed cat ?? quickest test for that is slacken exhaust manifold ,noisy but ??any blockage in exhaust system will show straight away.other problems could be fuel filter ,low fuel pressure crank sensor weak signal,i think you might find its cheaper to let dealer have look than change parts willy nilly .evan had a car doing this that some jealous neighbour had shoved a potatoe up the exhaust hence now the drop manifold down pipe part

I have a 1993 Ford Explorer that goes into high idle when I put in gear. It does this when the engine is hot or cold.


On some cars there's a speed sensor on the clutch or transmission. That might cause an idle problem.

My Nissan sentra fn15 with a ga15 engine, the rev counter does not change with rpm increase, drive car for 10 mins it slowly goes to 5-600 rpm, it also stalls sometimes, are they related


WHAT YEAR? CAR.
the engine tachometer reads what.
that whole post is a contradiction.
ahh, you mean the engine does not accelerate, or the engine bogs.
600 RPM is why below, 800 normal (most cars)
the engine stalls, well sure it will as low idle speed will surely do.
so the real post is my engine stalls.
and if i try WOT ,it will go above 600 rpm in or out of gear?
wot means wide open throttle.
can the engine race to 3000RPM in PARK (or neutral)
if engine power is ok, full WOT power up a hill and is only and idle problem say some. and we work bad idle.

the top reason for stalls (besides #1 never ever doing the 60k mile service,repeats at every 60k)_
is a stuck open EGR (part of same service to do that but Ill add that)
or stuck closed ISC (electric IAC)

Im just asking what size the motor for a 1994 ford probe???


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 period.

Just put new motor in 2001 mazda 626 v6 no check engin light on but surges and has no power any ideas


Hello! The Throttle Positioning sensor (TPS) is the likely culprit...It is mounted to the throttle body and has a three wire connector...
Wire colors are Green/Red. Violet/Yellow and Black/Yellow. The connector may not be fully seated, or has an open wire...If it passes a visual inspection you can test with a voltmeter...With connector in place...And engine at idle...Set volt meter to measure 1 - 4 volts without changing scales...If meter probes will not fit the rear of the connector push in paper clips...connect + meter probe to Violet/Yellow...and - probe to Green/Red...You should read less than 1 volt at idle...Slowly increase engine speed...Voltage should rise to 4 volts SMOOTHLY...If it jumps, jerks or acts erratically The TPS is defective...Send a comment with results.....Guru...........saailer

ROugh idle


there are 2 things that usually cause this, one is a dirty intake idle control valve and the other is hard engine mounts, I would say that both most likely apply to your car. try cleaning the intake with the following procedure from Ford.
Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls and low idle rough idle, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve and throttle valve (IAC for short), they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

1990 Ford Probe 2.2 automatic stalls in forward, reverse OK


Sounds like a bad IAC (idle air control valve/sensor) that controls your idle when going from throttle to idle. If bad your idle will act crazy and can cause stalls easily. Pretty sure that's it.
