If you are sure you have fuel and spark the only other posibilty is engine damage. The most likely is a broken timing belt and the cams are not turning.. Go back and check that fuel and spark again.. Don't look for major problems until you have really checked.. Squirt a little fuel into the intake manifold ahead of the throttle body.. If it fires you have spark and no fuel.. The computer may not be telling the injectors to open.. I had this problem once on a chevrolet and it turned out to be a clooged fuel filter.. buying gas in Mexico.

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: Fuel Pump Relay

Obviously, you can jump the relay but it is dangerous on an extended basis. You'd have pressure in the lines when you don't want it there. Replace the relay if it is defective.

If you have other issues, you can check the pump back to the tank by going on the business end of the relay and looking for resistance at the pump to ground. If it is open, the pump or the harness is bad...GMs have harness issues...not Fords.

Along with above, you could also have a bad coil pack firing off too.

I have a1996 ford probe gt 24 valve it cranks over but won't start


First check for spark at the spark plugs. If you are getting spark, then check for fuel pressure at the fuel rail (shrader valve). If you have spark and fuel you may have a vacuum leak or a timing issue.

You will need to find out if you lost spark to the plugs or fuel to the injectors to proceed.
Let me know if you need more info.

Could it be my fuel pump?


A fuel pump is not the problem, they either work or not, u are most likely having a loose of ignition spark, possible ignition module.
