Question about 1992 Ford Probe

1 Answer

'92 probe won't hold charge

I have a '92 automatic probe that was driving perfectly well until I had to let it sit when it snowed. The next time I went to use it the battery was dead. I jump stated it and charged the battery to regular levels, and it was fine. The the next day went to use it, and again the battery was dead. the thing is though that the battery should only be about a year old.

Cold does strange things.. check battery health with load test... check cables especially grounds... test for parasitic leak of electrical by inserting a test light between battery ground post and cable .. only faint light for radio and comuter should exist ..a bright light means a draw and should be discovered by removing fuses one at a time til located ...good luck

2001 Rodeo 2.8 Turbo Diesel running perfectly one day won't run the next. Seems to be after it sits for a couple of days. Any suggestions?


Hi Peter, If the vehicle turns on the starter all the time, and sometimes starts and other times fails, check the fuel filter for leakage. Sometimes air gets into the fuel system. When it gives problems, open the bonnet (hood) and have someone pump the pump on top of the filter housing. If it feels soft when beginning to pump, I would suspect either a leakage on the fuel line or the filter housing. If you need to replace the housing and filter, remember to fill the replacement filter with clean diesel fuel first. the glow plugs can also cause problems if one or more have burned out. Regards John

92' Nissan king Cab won't start


If you can not duplicate the problem on demand, it will be very difficult to find and know that it is fixed.
Do you know if you have lost spark to the plugs or fuel to the injectors when it is hard to start ?
There is a long list of choices, including a faulty relay, fuel pump, ignition module, coil, and so on.
You have to know if it is a fuel or ignition problem to proceed.

Need help in bleeding brakes on 92


Always start with the wheel furthest from the master cylinder. Have someone sit behind wheel and pump the brake pedal 5 times and hold the fifth pump to the floor. The other person, while the pedal is still held to the floor, opens the bleeder valve and releases all fluid and air and closes the valve. Then and only then does the person behind the wheel release the brake pedal. Repeat this process at each wheel until no sign of air bubbles are present in the fluid. Then move to the next closest wheel to the master cylinder. Be sure to periodically check and refill the brake fluid in the master cylinder. Good luck!
