I have a 92 ford probe and i had the altinator rebuilt ,after i put it back in it wont start ,it ran perfect before that and its the only thing i did.there is no fuel getting to the fuel filter.

Make sure the wires to alternator are correct and also check all your fuses you may have shorted the power wire or not connected all wires to power stud on alternator or by fluck your pump went bad.

1993 (2.0l 4 cyl) Ford Probe Wont Idle when warm.

Josh, Did you output the car's diagnostic codes before you reset the computer?
Just to confirm: your car has the "FS" engine - 1991cc double overhead cams?
built on the Mazda "GE" platform?
does your car have an "engine check light" or "MIL" on the dashboard? if so where and what does it look like and what does do ? ie: comes on when ignition is turned on & goes out after engine starts. or comes & goes out after x seconds. etc etc
are you 5sp manual or auto trans?

does your car have a diagnostic plug with a flip open lid just behind the battery near the front left suspension tower?

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.
