94ford probe won't start

Car would not start. The only way to get it to run was to push start it. Very easy to start with a pop of the clutch. Had battery checked fine bought a new starter and installs it, still won't start. Son ran a toggle switch from starter to inside of car and that worked fine, someone tried to steal car and left the toggle switch in the on position and burn out my starter but now it won't even start when we push start it. Can anyone help me.

Well Sandra , the thing to do would be to get it to turn the engine over with the key , Then diagnose the no start problem . Look at a wiring diagram (do you know what that is ?) When you turn the key to start , the electrical part of the ignition switch sends B+ voltage to the starter interrupter relay through the clutch switch to the starter motor solenoid . Testing the electrical circuit with a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter with the help of a wiring diagram ,so you know where to test is the proper way to diagnose the problem . Not guessing ,an rigging the stuff . You can find free wiring diagrams here http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html
Enter vehicle info. year , make , model an engine ! Under system click on engine ,then under subsystem click starting . Click the search button then the third blue link .

I was driving my 99 neon and heard a pop. The clutch peddal went to the floor and i cant get the car to go into gear


the hydraulic slave cylinder may have let go and will need replacing. its also possible that the clutch pressure plate broke or the clutch plate. you don`t say how many miles you have on the clutch. you also don`t say if it won`t go into gear with the engine running, which indicates clutch, or with the engine off.

My car will not go into gear unless its started and already in gear. Ill pull it outta gear and won't go back in while running.


Your transaxle will have to come out & new parts installed,
like synchro rings

You should be able to push in the clutch & shift thru all
gears nice & smooth,with no engine running.

That said I wouldn't rule out clutch issues also,but not
for the shifting issues.

Sounds like the neutral safety switch is going bad. Next time it does this to you with the engine off and the selector in neutral pop the clutch by pushing it down all the way then letting your foot slide off to the side so it's pops up and then see if you can start it. If this works you need to adjust the clutch and or replace the neutral safety switch on the transmission.

there is a plastic clip that connects the clutch pedal to the rod that goes to the master cylinder, chances are that it let go. Bad thing is that it is only available from GM along with the rod. It is around 50
