Question about 1993 Ford Probe

1 Answer

93 Ford Probe dies in neutral. Won't accelerate very well.

I cannot start my car without immediately putting gas to it. When I have the clutch in or if it's in neutral, the RPMS will just fall until it dies. It has no problem in gear when I'm giving it gas except that it will not accelerate like it used to. It is a bit sluggish. I changed the fuel filter, the air filter, cleaned the MAF sensor, and put in new spark plugs. I also tested the spark plug wires and they had good spark. I just recently changed my water pump and messed up the timing and my car wouldn't start. At that point I didn't know it was the timing and I thought I had a fuel pump issue. So, I rented a fuel pressure gauge and tested it. I could not test the pressure while the car was running since it wouldn't start, but it did build up to 45 psi after turning the key on/off a few times. After that, I took everything back apart to fix the timing and then my car finally started. Now, I'm trying to solve this issue which I've had for awhile but not as bad. Sometimes it could stay alive on it's own. Now it won't at all. Before I never had problems accelerating except on rare occasions. Any suggestions to what this could be?

93 Ford Probe 4cyl won't stay running


If it starts and runs, but then dies putting in gear or accelerating, check the thick ribbed rubber air intake hose between the throttle body and the air cleaner. Look for a crack in the ribs of the hose and replace if necessary. Common issue

93 Ford Probe won't start, possible fuel pump?


Fuel filters are cheap (less than $20.00 for the premium filter at Napa) and easy. If you've never changed it, you should do it anyway. It would at least make sure that it's not the filter if the problem still exists. On the bonus, you've got a new fuel filter.

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.
