Question about 1995 Ford Probe
Ok this is going to sound strange. I recently bought a 95 probe se 2.0 w/AT. Drove it for two days no problems, then went to start it the third day and wouldn't start.I started trouble shooting it and my code reader says code 211 primary ign. pick up circut fault.I have replaced the coil, the ign. module tried another dist.and it still does the same thing.It will start up, run for a few seconds and die.Try to fire it back up and it turns over lick there is no compresion, so I checked the timing every thing is good.Put it back togeather and fired right up ran great.I thought finally!!!! drove it around all day without any problems. the next morning fired up ran for a few seconds and died same thing all over again.Ok so now I am getting frustrated to say the least,so I did a compresion check on it and had 0 compresion in any cylider.so I recheked the timing still good,checked the cam and crank shafts, ther good as well. So I went to bed reading about poss. problems, remember 0 compresion. The next morning fired right up ran for about 1 hour turned it off a few times within that time ,started right back up then bam it does the same thing with the same outcome on the tests that I have done.I have worked on cars for years and know my way around them farely well, but this has got me very confused, and frustrated as well. SO CAN ANYONE HELP ME WITH THIS PLEASE!!!! IM AT A STAND STILL WITH IT. I have checked the fuel pump its ok,canged the ECM, the coil, the dist. ign. modular what next ?????????????? ANY IDEAS THANK YOU
Crank shaft sensor? I've had these be bad in a couple of vehicles, and I spent weeks/months worrying about the possible cause. Just a possible thought.
