Ford probe idle fluctuating


Sounds like you have bad gas. It can get strong mix of gas to give you the right idle, but when it has water mix, it will cause the car to fire like it should. This will then give you a low, rough, or just cutting off idle. Try mixing water remover in with the gas. You may have to drain the gas out or just drive it like it is until the tank is almost empty. Fill up with gas (from a different store) and you may want to change the plugs after the good gas is through the system. I'm not saying the plugs are bad, but there may be a lot of moisture beads from the water sitting causing rust.

93 ford probe kills when i let off the gas, is starts up fine ,after it warm up it kills


Most likely the TPS (Throttle Position Sensor) which controls cold, warm, and AC on idling speeds. Another cause could be the MAP sensor but I'd lean toward the TPS. Best of luck.

p.s. You can bring the car to a service station or auto parts store which features free diagnostic testing which will give you any error codes to lead you in the right direction.

My 93 ford probe gt wont idle and wont shift outa 2nd gear


Sounds like you need to check your vaccum lines for a leak. This is easy to do. Buy a can on carburator cleaner and with a friends help keep the car running as you spray your vaccum lines with the carburator cleaner one by one. If you have a leak it will **** the cleaner into the lines and cause the vehicle to stall out. Replace the line if this happens and continue checking all lines until all bad lines are replaced.

Running problems with a 94 Ford Probe GT


check the fuel pressure, it should be over 40 PSI, also this can be caused by defective Mass Air Flow sensor or MAF for short, has your fuel filter been changed?if not it may be clogged.

Ford Probe Engine jumps down to 0RPM while driving


The tach suddenly falling to zero while driving is a classic symptom of the notorious distributor failure in the 1993-94 Probe GTs. There is a part in the distributor called the ignitor that is failing because they were not made to withstand the high heat conditions of the Probe GT engine compartment. Unfortunately, Ford does not sell ignitors and they charge an insane price for a new distributor.

The easiest solution is to buy a replacement disty. The problem is that many of the rebuilt distys sold by auto parts stores also have ignitors that will soon fail. There is an outfit with an eBay store called the Distributor King that sells replacement distys with upgraded ignitors. The distys they sell are manufactured by Richporter Technology and the model that works on a '93 PGT is number MZ25 ( thats the manufacturer's number, not Distributor King's). You might try checking the price on eBay then google the part number and see if you can find it at a better price elsewhere. There are also other vendors on eBay that say they sell the same identical disty for less than Distributor King. You could email them and ask who makes their distys.

If you are handy and have some time on your hands there is a way to jury rig a replacement for the ignitor for about $20. There is a detailed discussion of that here.

Car dies once it get up to temp


Follow this procedure I use for these kinds of stalls, please rate this info, thanks..

Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls and low idle, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve and throttle valve, they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.
