    Timing is the next thing I need to know about cause when we took the cap and rotar off he forgot to make sure of where it was positioned.

You should check power at each one to verify that they have power, which engine do you have 4 or 6 cyl? the 4cyl the coil is seperate from the distributor and the module is located on the side of the distributor, the 6cyl it is all inside the distributor, but to replace parts without verifing power is not cost effective. The most common ignition failure is the ignition module, but you still need to verify that it receives power.

    check power at the coil, if you have battery voltage, I would replace the module, it is responsible for firing the coil

    If you have the automatic trans the coil is in the distributor, if manual it is external, if the coil is in the distributor you should have more than one plug connected to the distributor, check each plug. If manual trans locate all plug wires, the wire that does not go to a spark plug goes to the coil, hope this helps

    the connector with three should be the coil, the connector with five should be the module, check the pins in the five pin connector with the key on do you have power? on any of the pins? if not your ignition module is getting no power, therefore it won't work. If you get power the module is probably bad. The module can be removed and taken to autozone and tested.

    why didn't you say you had codes?? verify the code 11 is actually 11 and not 2, code 2 is crankshaft position sensor #2 this will keep your ignition from sparking. The other codes are for the transmission but will not keep the engine from running. To verify codes, disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, reconnect and try to start, then pull codes again see what comes back, let me know what codes you get.

    the rotor can not be put on incorrectly it had its own index, the cap is the same way. Timing can be verified by turning the engine by hand until the timing mark comes up on the indicator to the zero mark, put the mark on zero and check the rotor position the brass end should be pointed at the number 1 plug position. Did yo uremove the module and have it tested?

Try replacing the coil... this is what gives spark
to the cap and rotor. good luck.

    the short wire on your cap (in the middle) should go to a little coil pack mounted on the engine near by.

DETERMIN IF YOUR PROBLEM IS ONE OF THE FOLLOWING BEFORE CHANGING ANYTHING .1.ELECTRICAL
2.FUEL RELATED OR 3. MECHANICAL.

PERORM A COMPRESSION CHECK TO ENSURE THE COMPRESSION IS GOOD .IF THE COMPRESSION IS IN ALL CYLINDERS PROCEED TO CHECK FUEL SYSTEM .REMOVE THE FUEL INJECTORS AND EXAMIN THE INJECTOR TIP FOR CARBON DEPSITS .CHECH FUEL SPRAY PATTERN ,ENSURE INJECTORS ARE ACTUALLY SPRAYING . THEN PROCEED TO EXAMIN THA SPARK PLUGS .LOOK FOR DISCOLOURATION OF SPARK PLUG ELECTRODES OR CARBON DEPOSITS. IN DIAGNOSING PROBLEMS ONE HAS TO SYSTEMATIC OR ELSE YOU WOULD BE WASTING MONEY AND TIME PURCHASING AND REPLACING COMPONENTS WHICH ARE NOT DEFECTIVE . GOOD LUCK .

You may have a blown head gasket or burnt valve. Run a compression test on all cylinders. If you find one or more that is low then there is your miss.

hi, there may be a number of things blocked SLOW RUNNING JETS ( inside carburetter), spark plugs need replacing or cleaning, high tention spark plug leads dodgy (cracked insulation) leaking current (missing spark), distributer cap and or rotar arm ( cap inside distributer), insufisient fuel feed. gerry

Want to replace fron in 93 ford probe


1993 is a split year, if you have charging ports are a little bigger than the size of a tire valve stem then u have R12, if they are big then you have R134, most all Ford in 93 use R12. In the picture are adapters for a retrofit to R134, these screw on an R12 port, note the large cap R134 cap on the end of the adapter.

Since it's turning over and you smell gas you probably have a spark proble. Check spark at plugwires and work back to the coil by disconnecting the smaller 3 prong connector at the distributor. Check for 520-580 ohms between the 2 outer prongs on the dist. side.  If that is good pull the cap and inspect.  Check resistance from the inner of the 3 prongs and the coil by probing the hole where the cap penetrates the high tension lead.  No resistance = Bad coil. Replace dist.  NEXT Remove dist. marking the rotor position and the housing position in order to replace it the same spot.  Tun th rotor and you should hear 6 clicks per rotation. this is the injectores taking spark. If none then CK1 (or camshaft sensor) is likely bad. refer to manual for in depth and double checking the routine. A Disty is aroung $200-250  or 1,000 at dealer. Even after all these checks there is no guarantee as the probe is known to have some really tough spark issues. Particularly the 93. This info is for 93 2.5L 6cyl., but translates well for most any car. ICM (ignition control module) cannot be tested unless your parts house has a tester. Th eprobes have internal icm and coil (in the dist.).
 Remember. You can jumper from gnd and 10 pin too pull codes. 
 All this can be found in a 15$ Haynes manual which pays for itself the first time you have issues.  Feel Free t oe-mail me - I have gone Waayyay past this with my 93.    Bayside@operamail.com

Ford probe won't start


distributor is placed wrong for timing
take cap off unbolt distributor lift enough to turn rotor place back dont bolt litely just enough to hold distributor down without it poping up on you
place cap back on
now you need manual start and kill switch up in engine compartment turn vehicle over with manual starter switch if runs rough turn distributor till sounds good now time it with radar gun tighten bolts the rest of the way

now for what i described this has a margin of error going 1 to 3 notches to time in either direction from front to back or back to front turning of the distributor rotar
i hope i had made some sense heree695f1c.jpg
or counter clockwise the lifting distributor and turning rotor one tooth to engine crank this is timeing
