95 ford probe want idle after warming up

when cold idle is going, listen to intake manifold with hood open. This will involve getting real close to the intake side of the engine. If you hear a whistle or air draw from anywhere around the intake, there is an air leak to the engine. The intake manifold gasket maybe cracked allowing air to bypass the intake sensors at cold when the gasket is closed. But when it warms up, the gasket allows air to bypass the intake and causes a stumble, pause at partial throttle or a wondering idle. If you increase the idle speed, it confuses the cpu and causes the engine to run eratic.

My Sunbirdis bouging at the start, have changed fuel pump, sensor, fuel filter, throttle body.

Did you change out all of the gaskets involved as well? This would include the intake manifold gaskets as well. Sitting for two years, most of the gaskets have dried out and shrunk. Also check for vacuum leaks around all of the intake connections as well. You can use smoke or a spray can of either, or propane. When close to a vacuum leak the smoke or spray will be sucked in and in the case of the either or propane the idle will smooth out for a few seconds.

Coolent in oil

If you have coolant in your oil there is 99% chance it is your intake gaskets. It is about a 6 hour job. You will need mechanical ability. This job involves removing every thing on top of the motor, including the distributor and AC pump. You will also need to remove the whole bracket assembly off the drivers side of the motor that the AC pump bolts to in order to remove the intake. Do not out off getting it fixed because the coolant will destroy the bearings in the motor. Also use the new felpro metal gaskets.
