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 SUV is choking and it hesitates


which engine? 2L I4 or 2.5L V6?
chocking, it bogs full time.
total loss of power at all times? any speed, any hill, any gear.
is this a A/T or M/T car, the A/T can slip. easy
does the engine lack power, or does the tranny slip.
slipping is easy to discover, the RPM of the engine rise fast
but you go now where fast.
bogging can happen in many modes. (all or just 1: pick one)
all permutations
1: hot engine?
2: cold or both.?
3: wont race even in neutral, but idles ok. at 800 rpm.?
4: only with a fast right foot,called tip in throttle. but recovers.!
5: lost power at all driving loads, and worse on hills.?
6: all the above.?
in a real shop, i drive it and in a few minutes all the above is seen and vastly more, that is why online help is so bad, (me too)
no inputs. = wild guessing.....
heck i even notice things like?
dash volt meter dropping. below 14v at any time running.
overheating
CEL glowing or worse flashing (USA feature , OP never said)
old noises and vibration.
clutch slipping or A/T slipping.
Scan tool connected, and seeing pending codes, or any odd PID behaviors.
bad idle speed, idle speeds not controlled correctly.
and 100 more things, Ill stop here, it's a complex machine.

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.

95 ford probe se auto. trans. shifts back and forth from 3rd and 4th gear once on hwy. suspect o/d switch or speed/shifting sensors. any ideas?


I own a 1995 Ford Probe SE 2.0L that suffered the same problem. The transmission shop Techs insisted the transmission was blown and needed replaced. After doing some research it turn out to be the Park Neutral Switch also known as a Transmission Range Sensor right below the air box. The part cost 54 bucks. The problem stopped after replacing it. About a year latter the problem came back. After doing some more research it turn out to be the VSS speed sensor. The part cost 57 bucks. The problem stopped after replacing it.

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.
