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

85 ford f150 302 v8 2val carb stall when put in gear


How long since a tune-up? Have you checked the timing? How many miles on engine? How is your cylinder compression?
There isn't much load on engine in park or neutral. When you put it in gear, there is a load on the engine. With carbed engine 6--8 psi fuel pressure. Crub idle in drive, 575 rpms. With a high mileage engine, that idle speed may not work. Is there an idle screw on the carb, where you can up the idle to keep it from stalling, in gear? Of course if you do that, when you put it in park or neutral the idle is going to go high, I know it's a pain. If your engine is in poor shape, your probably going to have a tough time, getting it to run correctly. Just my opinion.

I need help please ! I have a ford f150 4.6 Symptoms are the following ....


really sounds like a transmission issue since the engine runs great in park/neutral and no power in low gear, if reverse is bad too, then one of the solenoids or clutch drum is bad.

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.

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.

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.

1991 ford probe


duck tape on the air intake. I just fixed mine. There is a crack on the intake that lets too much air in when you put it in drive that makes the car stall. Try it it works.
